A. Mitrovic, Tadic, and Gudelj all on yellow cards. We really don't want them missing the Portugal match but at the same time, we have to win this match today. Wonder if any will be rested today.

Guess all of them are benched:

Vlahovic-Jovic
Kostic-SMS-Lazovic
Lukic-Grujic
Nastasic-Mitrovic-Veljkovic
Rajkovic

Might see some of them come on in the second half if things are tight.

I like it. Obviously I'd never play Stefan Mitrovic, but I'm happy to see Lukic, Grujic and Jovic in there. Lukic doing well in Serie A, Gruja potentially one of our best midfielders and Jovic needs that confidence boost.

Also encouraged by Veljkovic's recent performances and the fact that Nastasic is our captain tonight, ahead of S. Mitrovic.

Want to see more from our wingers tonight. Lazo's been underwhelming the last couple of times he played and Kostic was meh Vs Lux.

Two posts and a clearance off the line...

Portugal up 3-0 against Luxembourg. Doesn't look like we have any chance of having the goal differential advantage with Portugal now.

Portugal already up 3-0 on Luxembourg in the 18 minute. Two penalty shots scored


Serbia has had 3 or so chances but couldn't get the goal so far.

Vlahovic brought down in the penalty area, scores the penalty in the 30th minute.

Serbia should be up 5 or 6 goals by now.

I have no faith in Rajkovic. He panics every time he has the ball at his feet, can't make basic clearances.

Wow, just wow. I've always thought Rajko had what it takes to become a good goalkeeper, but it's not just this, he comes across as insecure. Dmitrovic next game please.

The story of our campaign, we play well, but don't finish our chances and end up punishing ourselves. Hopefully we pick it up, but with Penaltugal up 3-0 at HT, we needed a big result here. Now let's just get the win, otherwise the Portugal game might not even matter any more.

Goalll Vlahovic!! 53rd minute

Corner kick. Goes out to Lazovic who blasts it, Gk (having the game of his life) saves it and Vlahovic picks up the rebound and easily scores.

3-1 win. Could have been 11-1 as they had 9 shots on target and 8 shots off target.

Portugal won 5-0

Serbia 17 pts +8 goal differential
Portugal 16 pts +12 goal differential with a game in hand.

Glad to get the result although it was harder than it should have been with the missed opportunities and mistake (when have we not said this after a match :LOL:)

Unless Portugal loses in Ireland, which I don't expect to happen but isn't impossible, it's looking like we will have to beat Portugal away to qualify directly.
