Here is the Serbia squad that's been named to face Finland on September 8th in Belgrade, and Portugal four days later in Lisbon. Serbia squad Goalkeepers: Vladimir Stojković (Sporting Clube de Portugal), Vlada Avramov (ACF Fiorentina). Defenders: Antonio Rukavina (FK Partizan), Mladen Krstajić (FC Schalke 04), Ivica Dragutinović (Sevilla FC), Duško Tošić (Werder Bremen), Nemanja Vidić (Manchester United FC), Milan Stepanov (FC Porto), Branislav Ivanović (FC Lokomotiv Moskva). Midfielders: Dejan Stanković (FC Internazionale Milano), Nenad Kovačević (RC Lens), Igor Duljaj (FC Shakhtar Donetsk), Milan Smiljanić (RCD Espanyol), Boško Janković (US Città di Palermo), Zdravko Kuzmanović (ACF Fiorentina), Miloš Krasić (PFC CSKA Moskva), Zoran Tošić (FK Partizan). Forwards: Marko Pantelić (Hertha BSC), Nikola Žigić (Valencia CF), Danko Lazović (PSV Eindhoven), Milan Jovanović (R. Standard de Liege). Notes: There are a couple of changes in the squad for the upcoming matches. The major one is the inclusion of our captain Dejan Stankovic, after he served his suspension of one game. The other surprise inclusion is Zoran Tosic of Partizan Belgrade. The young player had a great U21 tournament in Holland this summer and moved from Bezanija to Partizan. He becomes the sixth player of the U21's to get called up. Branislav Ivanovic, the captain of the U21 national team also gets the call up after Clemente deems it necessary to reinforce the defense. In my true opinion this is the ideal Serbian team with the possibilty of including Dusan Basta instead of Igor Dugalj. I really can't see what the coaches see in him but he must follow their orders on the park. This is a big chance for Zoran Tosic, and he was one of the best Serbian players at the U21 championship. It's quite ironic that he got his chance through Milos Krasic's injury in the first game versus Italy. It will be interesting to see who Clemente picks for midfield. I think we will see a midfield of Dejan Stankovic, Nenad Kovacevic, Zdravko Kuzmanovic, and Bosko Jankovic. I doubt Kuzmanovic will be dropped after his two goals versus Belgium in Brussels on his debut. If he is indeed dropped, the reason will most likely be the lack of width on the pitch. Expect either Milos Krasic or Zoran Tosic to get their opportunity. Up front I see Nikola Zigic starting because goals are badly needed, and if he is still injured a possible 4-5-1 might be explored with Pantelic up front and Dejan Stankovic playing as a support striker. In the defensive end I expect to see the standard back line of Rukavina, Vidic, Krstajic, and Dragutinovic. However, after a dismal performance versus Belgium, conceding three goals Clemente might shake things up. He has brought Bratislav Ivanovic, Dusko Tosic, and Milan Stepanov along for the two games therefore he could put the U21's to see how they do. Need I bear reminding people that whenever the back line of Rukavina, Ivanovic, Stepanov, and Tosic started we never conceded a goal? Therefore it will be interesting. Recent news also have it that Javier Clemente has been involved in a serious health incident, so that will even shake things up further. I really don't know who will select the starting 11. Hopefully everything will be fine in time for the two qualifiers. In conclusion, I think these two matches will decide who moves on to Euro 2008. Serbia need at least 4 points to progress, and anything less will surely spell an end to our chances of progressing. Who knows, football is football and anything can happen, but we seriously need to perform well here to have any chance going into the final stretch.
