Serbia boss Radomir Antic has complete faith and belief in his playing group as they chase a Round of 16 berth at the 2010 World Cup.
Ahead of Wednesdayâs (Thursday morning AEST) final Group D clash with Australia in Nelspruit, Antic can smell a moment of history on the horizon for his squad who are competing in their first World Cup since the country gained independence in 2006.
âWe know that we have an opportunity of historic value,â Antic said.
âI wouldnât like to put any extra Â¬pressure on my boys by saying they have to win, but when I say I believe in them I mean it, quite truthfully.
âI try to have a balance in my team. I always want to play with a collective team spirit.â
âAustralia has a lot of potential and I can guess how they will play,â he added.
âTim Cahill will be playing as well and I expect Josh Kennedy to be in the starting line-up.
âThe two games Australia played show they have a very solid team, a very strong team and I donât expect them to change the way they play.â
