The striker, who scored against Lithuania, has been dry in the league since February 7: he wants to try again against Verona
‘Strikers live on goals. If you don’t score, nobody’s fine’: words and music by Dusan Vlahovic, from Serbia’s retirement. The national team vibe did him good: in Friday’s game he scored one of the two goals that saw his national team beat Lithuania, with Kostic, to stay on topic, providing the winning assist for Tadic.
11 goals with Juve so far
He returned to goal with Juve on March 16 against Freiburg, while he has been absent from the league since February 7 when he signed a brace against Salernitana. And of course he’s aiming to get back on track for the next game, the game against Verona on Saturday night. He has now scored 11 goals for Juventus this season, including two braces and three penalties: 8 in Serie A, one in the Champions League and two in the Europa League.
purpose and confidence
Meanwhile, he comments on Serbia’s momentum: “We are all happy to have won and I hope we continue like this. It’s certainly important to start qualifying with a win. We split the minutes, we’re going to play a very important game on Monday, the stadium will definitely be full and that’s a very good thing”. On his relationship with the net: “The strikers live from goals. If you don’t score goals, nobody feels good. In this case the most important thing is that we won and that goal is just a plus and I’m very happy for sure. The goals give the players confidence and I hope to stay in this form but most importantly that the team keep winning.”
