Deputy to the FA of Serbia President, Marko Pantelić, has commented on the 2022 World Cup qualifying draw:
-I am happy with the draw outcome; we want a direct qualification for the World Cup. Portugal is our old acquaintance; we have already had chances to play them in qualifying matches. It is for sure that once again two strong and very uncertain, interesting matches are coming our way. We also know Irish very well; they have their well known style they have been known for decades. Luxembourg was our rival in the European Championship qualifications, we know their team well. We have not play Azerbaijan for a long time now, but it is definitely one of the rivals we want to achieve the best result with. Objectively, Portugal and Serbia will aim for the first position in the group – stated deputy to the FA of Serbia President, Marko Pantelić.
