Outstanding Dusan Tadic: ‘All Serbs can be happy and proud’ | Football


Portugal took the lead in the Estádio Da Luz within 2 minutes via Renato Sanches, after fumbling from the Serbian Nemanja Gudelj. “We started badly, but that didn’t stop us,” said Tadic. “We had discussed beforehand that something like this could happen. It was important to stay calm, keep the ball in the team and outsmart Portugal. And it worked.”

Tadic himself equalized after more than half an hour, thanks to Portuguese goalkeeper Rui Patrício who let the Ajax player’s shot slip through his hands. In the last minute of regular time, substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic headed in the 1-2 on a pass from Tadic.

According to 32-year-old Tadic, Serbia’s success is mainly due to national coach Dragan Stojkovic, who was appointed at the beginning of this year. “He brought back the smile. I hope he stays with us for a long time,” said the number 10. “We play great football, we also dominated against Portugal. We want to participate in all World Cups and European Championships. I am very happy that we have made it now.” Serbia failed to qualify for last summer’s European Championship.
