Their squad features some incredible players across all positions on the pitch, including the attacking firepower of Dusan Vlahovic, Dusan Tadic, Sergei Milinkovic-Savic, Filip Kostic, and Aleksandar Mitrovic. With such quality amongst their ranks, they are definitely a team to watch out for in the tournament.
