Tadic Warns Serbia Teammates Ahead Of Eagles Friendly


Dusan Tadic has warned his Serbia teammates to be wary of their Nigerian opponents in Tuesday's friendly in London. The Southampton midfielder has alerted his teammates of the Super Eagles'pace, strength and dominance.

''Nigeria have  a lot of good players, we expect a very physically game,''  Alo.rs  quoted the  forward as saying.

''They  have players in Leicester and  Chelsea, they are physically dominant, fast and strong.''

Also, the team coach Mladena Krystajic has warned the players that will need something extra to get a result against the Gernot Rohr-led men. The former Schalke player admitted the team faces a tough test against the three-time African champions. He also urged the team to forget about their loss to Morocco last week and concentrate on the game against the Eagles.

''Nigeria have a solid team with  many  of the players playing  for  European clubs,” HotSport.rs quoted him as saying.

''I expect a good reaction from our players and I think with good concentration, we can achieve a good result.

''I repeat, the most important  thing is the result, everything else is irrelevant.''

Meanwhile,  Nigeria captain Mikel  Obi  has ruled himself out of playing in  the encounter  as he is yet to resolve his work permit issue in China. The Tianjin Teda star could not travel to Poland for Friday’s fixture in Wroclaw due to the problem, and the former Chelsea midfielder has now confirmed that he will also miss today’s clash against Serbia.

Rohr has since invited Turkey-based midfielder Mikel Agu to replace him.
