BELGRADE - Serbia has a chance of making it to the World Cup semifinals, provided it survives the group stage with a victory over Australia Wednesday.
The Press daily speculated Tuesday that if Serbia beats Australia and comes second in group D, it would avoid Argentina in the next rounds and most likely play against the United States in the round of 16 and possibly Uruguay in the quarter-finals.
“Radomir Antic’s team showed in the match against Germany that they are capable of great matches and playing for the score,” the paper said in reference to the 1-0 upset over Germany on Friday.
“It sounds like a stereotype but if Serbia makes it to the semifinals, then everything would be possible.”
Team captain Dejan Stankovic agreed, saying: “This is the World Cup. One match can make all the difference and no one can predict where the limit is.”
