Prasnikar named 21 players for the August 21 friendly against Italy in Trieste and included Tottenham's new signing Milenko Acimovic (pictured) and Ipswich Town's Amir Karic in his squad for the country's first match since the finals in the Far East.
Slovenia's new boss has also included Benfica midfielder Zlatko Zahovic in his 21-man squad after his much-publicised row with Katanec lead to him being sent home from the World Cup finals after the country's first match against Spain.
Prasnikar will have a lot to follow after the tiny Balkan nation successfully qualified for the last European Championships and the World Cup finals under Katanec as he will try and lead Slovenia to Euro 2004 in Portugal.
