Filip Dmitrovic to represent Austria national team

Serbian goalkeeper Filip Dmitrovic has decided to apply for Austrian citizenship and switch his allegiance to Das Team.

The 20-year-old is the son for former Grazer AK and Sturm Graz defender Boban Dmitrovic, and he has already shown a great deal of potential.

The youngster has already made 60 league appearances for Austria Klagenfurt and he is reportedly on the radar of Newcastle United, PSV Eindhoven, Red Bull Salzburg and Austria Wien.

Despite spending some time with Serbia Under-19 side, Dmitrovic has decided to represent Austria at international level and has recently applied for a passport.

“I have applied for Austrian passport and I want to play for Austria,” Dmitrovic told Serbian media. “I grew up here while my father played for GAK and Sturm, so I consider Austria my home.

”I made my way to professional football here, the Austrians have always supported me, so now it’s time for me to pay them back.”

Dmitrovic will probably have to wait some time before he is called to the senior national team, but he is almost certain to receive a call-up to the Under-21 side as soon as he becomes eligible for selection.

Austria eased off to a place at the Euro 2021 finals, where they will face Hungary, Portugal and Iceland in Group F.

Das Team will play at least four warm-up games ahead of the showpiece tournament, as they face Albania (26.03), Turkey (29.03.), Malta (31.05.) and Netherlands (04.06.).
