Stojkovic: Mitrovic ready for Brazil match, Serbia ‘fear no one’

The head coach of the Serbian national team, Dragan Stojkovic, made a statement to the press before the first match they will play against Brazil tomorrow. He said Aleksandar Mitrovic is fit after picking up a foot injury in recent weeks, while Filip Kostic’s availability is a “big question mark”:

He said: “He (Mitrovic) is working with the team, he is not in pain. This is good news. As for Kostic, he is a big question mark and has been injured since the game against Juventus. He feels tired in his muscles. I want to be honest.”

Regarding Serbia’s match against Brazil, he added: “You said four forwards against Serbia? Then we’re done… But is there anyone playing defense? (laughs) You see Brazil is a big team and one of the best in the world and this , the golden generation of footballers. Brazil has a chance to win, but we are not afraid of anyone in the world – not even Brazil. I’m sorry, but it’s true, we are not afraid of anyone.”

Thiago Silva on Neymar

“I think Neymar is now at a good level for this competition, he has a different preparation compared to the previous World Cup because he had an injury in 2018. For sure, now we see a better Neymar with a different preparation without any injuries, without any worries. , and the most well he is humble, I think our group has welcomed all our colleagues and I think they will make Neymar more comfortable with us, we will share our responsibilities and I think that will help us going forward.”

Where is Joel Glazer?

Athletic Laurie Whitwell went on a solo search for her owner in the US last month. Did he find it? He did the heck.

Bruno Fernandes on Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United

“I don’t feel worried. I don’t have to choose a side. Playing with Ronaldo for the national team was a privilege and at the club it was a dream come true and I have always said that. Cristiano has always been an inspiration to me. It was a dream, but we know nothing lasts forever. Now Cristiano has made a decision about his life and career and we must respect every decision.”

Wales add rainbow flags to the corners in practice

They were one of seven countries to ban #OneLove wraps on Monday. The USMNT has also changed the color of its coat of arms around the training facility.

Maybe FIFA will decide that these are also political symbols…

Lewandowski will remain on penalties for Poland

Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz says captain Robert Lewandowski will remain on penalties despite missing yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Mexico.

Based on expected saves, the power and location of his penalty would still have hit 74 percent of the time.

“No coach tells a football player how to score a penalty. He was in training two days ago and he did it differently. He made a certain decision during the match, but it’s not the end of the world. Lewi knows how to take penalties. In my opinion, in case of possible punishment against Saudi Arabia, there will be no change. Unless it’s Robert’s decision.”

Mazraoui is injured for Morocco

Oof. It didn’t look good. The Bayern Munich defender is one of Morocco’s standout players, but there was a need to stretch on the hour mark.

He was treated a few minutes ago, but fell again. The injury was caused by a headbutt after he landed awkwardly. He was holding his right shoulder. Not a good sight. Attait-Allah replaces left-back Mazraoui in Morocco’s first change.

After just a few days of action in Qatar, we’ve already seen one serious injury, several concussions and a scare for the England captain.

“Even though I don’t always play (for my club), the national team has always helped me,” he says. “I have always been able to perform at a high level for them. Nobody gave me anything. I had to show that I deserve to be a starting player in every game with the national team.”

Luis Enrique is a fan of extra time

Spain coach Luis Enrique has a Twitch! How young! How free!

He’ll be providing updates from here throughout the tournament and has made interesting comments about all the extra time we’ve seen so far – more than 10 minutes on several occasions.

“I love all the extra time, first of all because teams like us who have a lot of possession always complain that we don’t play enough time.

“So I think it’s wonderful to play that much extra time, the most effective time possible (better) in both halves. Any team can play as they want, but the more quality minutes they play, the better. Therefore, I am very much in favor of this measure, it is the right step.”
