BRATISLAVA – Experienced defender Tomas Hobochan, 36, is ending his national team career for the second time. Hobochan bid farewell to the most valuable shirt in February 2019, but then, thanks to the confidence shown by coach Stefan Tarkovic, returned to the national team.

Hubočan put his hand at work on the Slovaks’ path to the European Championship, this year entering all three matches in Group E. This time he’s definitely saying goodbye to acting.

“In 2021 I had almost no vacation. I always had club or national team assignments. At the beginning of the year, my third son was born, so when I wasn’t at home, my wife was in charge of three kids. She had a tough time abroad. That’s why I missed the November meeting. During that time, I definitely realized that this could no longer be reconciled. Age also played a part in the decision.” The Slovak defender told the daily Sport.

“All my time in the national team with great people, I am very happy. It was great and I really enjoyed it. Among the coaches, I got along the most with the biggest Jan Kozak duo – Stefan Tarkovic. As for my teammates, I can’t say the name One. I’ve had an incredible number of “partners” over the years. I’ve had the best time with those who have spent a lot of time there.” Hubočan added.
