Who has Serbia boss Dragan Stojkovic picked for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar?

Serbia will be determined to show the world what they can do at the upcoming World Cup after missing out on Euro 2020.

They saw off the likes of Portugal among others in qualification to prove their credentials, but a difficult task awaits in Qatar come November.

They were paired with pre-tournament favourites Brazil, while Switzerland and Cameroon are also forces to be reckoned with in Group G.

Head coach Dragan Stojkovic has plenty of talent at his disposal, though, and he will be quietly confident about leading his team through the group stages.

    The likes of Stefan Mitrovic, Milos Veljkovic and Filip Mladenovic are trusted lieutenants of Strojkovic with Filip Mladenovic, Nikola Milenkovic and Srdan Babic also representing reliable options at the back.

    Strahinja Pavlovic is still young, but has already shown that he has what it takes to lead the way at the highest level, too.

    MIDFIELDERS

    There are plenty of different options in midfield as well.

    There's the experienced Andrija Zivkovic offering a creative spark in the more attacking roles, or Nemanja Gudelj or Nemanja Maksimovic providing defensive cover.

    Ivan Ilic is a youngster who will be looking to impress as well.

    ATTACKERS

    Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic and Juventus hitman Dusan Vlahovic are the first two names that stand out in the final third.

  • STRONGEST XI

    Serbia are likely to line up at the back with Milenkovic, Veljkovic and Pavlovic as part of a three-man defence in front of Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

    With Zivkovic and Kostic on the wings, the drive from the middle will be provided by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Lukic.

    Captain Tadic will slot in behind the front pairing of Mitrovic and Vlahovic.

    Serbia XI (3-4-1-2): V. Milinkovic-Savic; Veljkovic, Milenkovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, Lukic, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Tadic; Mitrovic, Vlahovic
