Serbia coach Dragan Stojkovic named Friday his World Cup squad, that includes star striker Dusan Vlahovic whose recent injury raised fears at home that he could not join the team.
The 22-year-old Juventus forward has not played because of a groin injury since the 4-3 defeat to Benfica which knocked the Italians out of the Champions League at the end of last month, prompting speculation that he might be left out of the squd.
Juve, however, are hopeful that he will be fit to play in Sunday’s Serie A match against Lazio and Stojkovic will hope to have him fully fit for Serbai’s third World Cup finals following 2010 and 2018.
They play in Group G along with Brazil — whom they face in their opening match on November 24 — Cameroon and Switzerland.
