CT SERBIA, We fear no one: not even Brazil

(ANSA) – ROME, NOVEMBER 23 – “We are not afraid of anyone in the world, even if it is Brazil. The Seleçao are a great team, which I consider the expression of a golden generation and I expect a good, very difficult match. What will I do if they play with four forwards? My answer is: who will play in defence? But it’s not important how Brazil play, for me it’s important how Serbia play.” The emotion of the debut in Qatar 2022 and the fact that many consider Serbia as a possible revelation team of these World Cups, with the expectations that this entails, do not seem to intimidate Dragan Stojkovic known as ‘Pixie’, coach of his national team and former president of the Serbian Football Federation. At least the thought whether Tite will line up Brazil with an extra striker, Vinicius, or will prefer a more ‘covered’ line-up affects him. “Brazil are the favourites, of course, but we focus on our qualities – Stojkovic continues – and we want to show a great Serbia. Do I have any doubts about the formation? The questions are completely legitimate, but no coach in the world will say the formation. Mitrovic worked with the team, he seems to have recovered from the consequences of his injury, and this is obviously good news. Kostic, on the other hand, has muscle problems and is in doubt. But it is true that from the Brazilians’ training ground, near that of Serbia, was a drone ‘sent’ to spy on the work of Milinkovic and his companions? “I don’t think they looked at us, and then who are we to be spied on? They are a football superpower, I think this is misinformation. And even if it had been a drone, I don’t know what they would have seen, nothing special”. (ANSA).
