#ThrowbackThursday: Germany vs Serbia, 2010 World Cup

January 21, 2016

I usually have belief in Serbia’s national football team, no matter how bad or good we are, but something about this German squad that really concerned me.  Sure we were coming off a fantastic qualifying phase, where we had finished first ahead of world powerhouse, France and a solid Austrian side.  Germany is a team that had always worried me.
