Who is Serbia coach?

The Serbian team is coached by Dragan Stojković, a former Yugoslav captain. Stojković went to China after his playing career ended in 2001.

There he was coached by Marcello Lippi, who led Italy to its fourth World Cup victory in 2006. After his time with Lippi, Stojković moved to Japan to coach the Grampus.

He led them to win the J-League Cup in 2010 for the first time since 1992 and had a brief run in the 2011 AFC Champions League. His success in Japan garnered him the attention of the teams he left behind in China, and an offer to return came in 2015.

Serbia key player: Aleksandar Mitrović

Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia can look back on a really successful season with Aleksandar Mitrović. Above all, the offensive power that he has brought to the team is extraordinary and could also be described as one of a kind. The Smederevo-born player has been a powerful addition to the team’s attack and has notched a total of 59 goals in just two seasons. Yet even for him, a player who is a legend in his own right and has the ability to hit the target in all manner of “impossible” situations, there has been a somewhat unusual goal celebration.

Serbia one to watch: Strahinja Pavlović

Serbia boasts enviable forwards and dependable goalkeepers. Stojković, a 37-year-old legend, will probably hold down the fort as Superman, while 23-year-old defender Pavlović can go incognito.

Pavlović, one of the most ardent workers on the squad, he’s now a regular for his club, RB Salzburg, and has been paying his dues in the Champions League. He may very well be the best player to watch come finals time in the German capital.

How did Serbia qualify for EURO 2024?

The Serbian national team is returning to the EURO for the first time since 2000. They qualified with an exciting 2-2 draw against Bulgaria in Belgrade in their final game of the group stage.

Dušan Vlahović of Fiorentina, currently the in-form player in Serie A, is being touted as the replacement for Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich by none other than Angelo Di Livio.

The current candidate for the number one spot for one of the best teams in Europe, Fenerbahçe, is Dušan Tadić. Tadić plays in the Turkish Süper Lig, which some consider at the precipice of making the magical leap to being considered one of the top five leagues in Europe.
