Football:World Cup 2002: SOUTH AFRICA v SLOVENIA, Group B,.

7.30am: Slovenia will be looking to the Republic of Ireland for inspiration when they cross swords with South Africa today. The decision to send home Zlatko Zahovic after a row with coach Srecko Katanec has echoes of Roy Keane's stormy exit from the Ireland camp.

The Republic have secured two creditable draws against tough opposition despite the absence of their captain, and Slovenia need similar performances against South Africa in Daegu, Korea, today and when they face Paraguay next week.

Katanec said: ``I was satisfied with the team's performance against Spain in many ways, although we lost 3-1. We played aggressively and generally defended well. We need to keep those good things against South Africa and do a bit more.''
