MNT Nov 11, 2009
It can be difficult scouring the internet when we are in other countries or when we are looking for information in a language foreign to the U.S. MNT Blog (in Slovak, for instance). We tracked down Slovakia's squad for the upcoming game and had to sift through some names which had been awkwardly translated into English. We came across goalkeeper Lubos Stonemason and defender Kornel Salad, and were thrown for a loop when we couldn't find record of them anywhere. Well, turns out Lubos Stonemason is actually Lubos Kamenár, who plays at Nantes in France and Kornel Salad is Kornel Saláta who is based right here in Slovakia at Slovan Bratislava. Apparently our internet browser took the liberty of translating a few of the names for us. Thanks, but no thanks, browser.
