Weiss senior backs son to shine

Slovakia coach Vladimir Weiss has admitted the pressure is on his starlet son as his team prepares to meet New Zealand during their FIFA World Cup™ opener in the Royal Bafokeng stadium.

Weiss junior, 20, who was on loan at Bolton from Manchester City for the latter part of last season, will almost certainly start in midfield for a Slovakian team participating at a FIFA World Cup finals for the first time as an independent nation.

The story is too old to be commented.
