Andraz Sporar was involved for his country in a 1-0 win over Malta this evening.
The on-loan Boro forward was subbed on for the last twenty minutes of the World Cup qualifier in Ljubljana.
Sandi Lovric scored the crucial goal from the penalty spot just before half-time.
Sporar had a golden opportunity to seal the win with another spot kick with two minutes remaining, but saw his effort saved.
Victory moves Slovenia above Slovakia and up to third in Group H.
