Youth teams


"I played on the Slovak national team in virtually every age category. As a 12-year-old I represented Slovakia at the unofficial world championships in Spain - an international tournament in 2003 where 15 countries participated and we finished fifth. Our coach was Ján Greguš. Then I was coached by Igor Bôbik, Bohumil Andrejko, Ladislav Pecko, Boris Kitka, Ivan Galád... With the under-17 national team I played 11 matches, and seven with the under-19s. I like to remember all the matches I’ve ever played and I’ve enjoyed every single one. Especially under Ivan Galád, coach of the under-21 team, a great bunch of guys who played excellently together and the team was well managed, too. For me those years were unforgettable."
