I do appreciate optimism but there is just something that doesn't work in Serbian football... we are not world beaters by any measure... but we are always less than the sum of our parts... for example, look at the recent U21 game vs Austria --> on paper, we looked great (Milenkovic, Zivkovic, Jovic etc.) but lose 2-0 with the obligatory red card and are pretty much eliminated after the first game
on the other hand, we - if anything - overachieve elsewhere in basketball, water polo, tennis, volleyball etc.
it just might be that our flaws are accentuated and fatal in football because it is the biggest sport
Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."
