Slovenia's Milenko Acimovic was happy to be on the scoresheet against Paraguay - but lamented the misses that brought Slovenia's World Cup to an early end.

Acimovic scored just before half-time against Paraguay to give his country a chance to reclaim some pride after a disappointing tournament.

And he felt his side could have made more of an impact had htey had a bit more luck.

"We missed so many chances against Paraguay, it was incredible," he said.

"If we had more luck, we would probably have won this match. Instead, Paraguay were luckier, so they deserved to win.

"I don't think that anyone back home is too disappointed about our three losses here. Our problem, not only in this match, was our fitness.

"We weren't at our best but it was a great experience to be here.

"We gave our best and I'm happy to score a goal against the mighty Chilavert, it was a great feeling.

"After a rest, I will concentrate fully on my new duties at Tottenham Hotspur. I'm really looking forward to it."
