June 27 – Striker Aleksandar Mitrovic has warned Brazil that Serbia will be coming out all guns blazing in their crunch Group E World Cup clash in Moscow tonight.
Serbia lost their last World Cup outing 2-1 against Switzerland amid huge controversy and only have a slim chance of progressing.
But they will be hoping to avoid relying on Switzerland’s game with already eliminated Costa Rica by upsetting the World Cup favourites and clinching a place in the knockout stage.
“We Serbs are used to having to take the hard way. Against us, anything goes. But we are still here,” said Mitrovic. “They can’t challenge us. They can’t knock us down as many times as we can stand up. We’re known for that. We are still here and our heads are not bowed.”
“We are going to give it our everything, we are going to die out there on the pitch to represent our national team in the best possible way until the final minute and to make every Serbian proud.
“Those who believe in miracles are the ones who make them happen. We’re Serbian. Nothing is impossible.”
