Curcic names Serbia squad for Armenia, France matches

Curcic names Serbia squad for Armenia, France matchesSerbia coach Radovan Curcic has named four uncapped players in his 25-man squad for upcoming games vs Armenia and France.

Having taken one point from first five qualifiers, while also receiving a three-point ban, the Eagles currently sit at Group I rock-bottom with -2 points and have long ago lost all hope of reaching the tournament finals.

This means that the September 4 qualifier against Armenia will be a dead rubber for both sides, but it is important to note that Serbia are 1.36 (4/11) to record the first win of the campaign.

Knowing all too well that remaining Euro 2016 qualifiers will have no major importance for his side, coach Radovan Curcic has called four uncapped players.

Defenders Marko Petkovic, Uros Spajic, Milos Kosanovic and midfielder Darko Brasanac are all in line to win their first caps, while Under-20 World Cup champion Predrag Rajkovic (1/0) keeps his place.

Matija Nastasic (19/0) and Filip Djordjevic (14/4) miss out through injury, whereas Serie A stars Dusan Basta (17/2) and Bosko Jankovic (31/5) have been overlooked yet again.

Following the Euro 2016 qualifier vs Armenia, Serbia will contest an international friendly against the France national team on September 7.

Serbia squad:

Goalkeepers: Vladimir Stojković (Maccabi Haifa), Željko Brkić (Carpi), Predrag Rajković (Red Star);

Defenders: Branislav Ivanović (Chelsea), Aleksandar Kolarov (Manchester City), Nenad Tomović (Fiorentina), Nikola Maksimović (Torino), Marko Petković (Red Star), Ivan Obradović (Anderlecht), Uroš Spajić (Toulouse), Miloš Kosanović (Mechelen);

Midfielders: Nemanja Matić (Chelsea), Ljubomir Fejsa (Benfica), Nemanja Gudelj (Ajax), Radosav Petrović (Dinamo Kiev), Luka Milivojević (Olympiakos), Filip Kostić (Stuttgart), Dušan Tadić (Southampton), Adem Ljajić (Roma), Darko Brašanac (Partizan);

Forwards: Zoran Tošić (CSKA Moscow), Andrija Živković (Partizan), Aleksandar Mitrović (Newcastle), Lazar Marković (Liverpool), Petar Škuletić (Lokomotiv Moscow).
