LJUBLJANA: Slovenia coach Srecko Katanec says he will step down from his job after the team's World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Sunday.

Slovenia, which lost to England 1-0 on Thursday, still has a slim chance of reaching a playoff spot in Group F if it beats Scotland and Slovakia loses at home against Malta.

The 54-year-old Katanec became Slovenia coach in December 2012. He earlier coached Slovenia from 1998-2002, taking the team to the 2000 European Championship and the 2002 World Cup.
