Injured Dushan Vlahovic was included in Serbia’s World Cup squad

BELGRADE, Serbia – Center forward Dušan Vilhović was included in Serbia’s World Cup squad on Friday, despite missing his last four matches with Juventus due to a back problem.

Vlahovic has not played since Juventus’ exit from the Champions League with a loss at Benfica on October 25.

But Serbia coach Dragan Stojkovic is willing to wait until his star player is healthy – especially since Vlakovic has scored 50 goals in all competitions with Fiorentina and Juventus over the past two seasons.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, another prolific scorer, can provide a strike double with Vlahovic.

Also included for Serbia was Filip Kostic, who provided support for Vlahovic with Juventus and the national team.

In a 26-man squad that includes 11 players from Serie A, Serbia’s midfield is led by Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Serbia open against Group G favorites Brazil on November 24, then play Cameroon four days later before facing Switzerland on December 2.

Serbia will play a friendly against Bahrain next Friday.
