FC Twente’s Tadic confident of helping Serbia shoot down Scotland

Dusan Tadic feels he will score when Serbia meets Scotland in Novi Sad on Tuesday.

The FC Twente striker missed a clear chance when the two sides last met in Glasgow in September last year for a 0-0 draw and he is convinced he will hit the target in the next Group A World Cup qualifier in his homeland when the bottom-placed Scots come to town.

“My best memory of the match in Scotland last September was hearing the national anthem being sung by the fans before the game,” said the former Groningen man.

“It made the hairs on my arms stick up, it was a really nice atmosphere. I also remember the match well because I missed a great chance to score the winning goal in the final minute.

“My teammate Zoran Tosic from CSKA Moscow played me one-on-one with the keeper but he dived to save my right foot shot.

“If I had scored we would have come away with an additional two points and not just a 0-0 draw.

“I didn’t score then but that’s okay because I’m going to score on Tuesday to make up for it.

“We respect Scotland and their players and know most of them play in the Premier League in England.

“We don’t know too much about the new coach Gordon Strachan but we’ll analyse Scotland because we respect every opponent.

“However, this is all about us – we’re going for the win.”
