The Golden Goddess, a source of many dreams for anyone who has ever played football is up for grabs yet again. Serbia’s dream is very much alive as they enter this year’s Mundial with high confidence. Having beat favourited Portugal the squad of coach Dragan Stojković faces new challenges, including repaying the debts from Russia.

Serbia will compete in the Group G alongside 2018’s World Cup rivals: Brazil (Nov 24th) and Switzerland (Dec 2nd). The footballing world remembers the scandalous decisions of head ref Felix Brych who won’t be able to grace us with his presence in Qatar.

Aside from the two rivals the Serbian public cannot wait to see for the second time running, the Eagles will face Cameroon (Nov 28th) who qualified after a nerve wracking equaliser (124′) on March 30th.

  • Group A: Qatar (automatically qualified as hosts), Ecuador, Senegal, the Netherlands;
  • Group B: England, Iran, United States, Wales/Scotland/Ukraine;
  • Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland;
  • Group D: France, Peru/Australia/UAE, Denmark, Tunisia;
  • Group E: Spain, Costa Rica/New Zealand, Germany, Japan;
  • Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia;
  • Group G: Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon;
  • Group H: Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea.

This isn’t the ideal group for Serbia, given that they won’t be playing the hosts, nor were they set with more favorable options. However team Serbia aren’t lacking the motives nor the drive in the slightest. It’s on.

This year’s World Cup begins on November 21st with Qatar playing Ecuador in the opening match. The tournament organisation has been causing controversy since its inception. Filled with many allegations of human rights violations and the deaths of some 6500 construction workers involved in building the facilities over the past years.
