Ivica Dragutinović has been included in the Serbia squad for the forthcoming UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifiers against Belgium and Armenia in Belgrade.
The Sevilla FC left-back's selection is coach Javier Clemente's only change from the 20-man squad that earned a win at home against Azerbaijan and a draw in Poland in their opening Group A games earlier this month. Dragutinović replaces FC Lokomotiv Moskva right-back Branislav Ivanović, who has been allowed to resume his role as captain of the Under-21 team as they look to reach the 2007 UEFA European Under-21 Championship finals in the Netherlands with a two-legged play-off against Sweden on 6 and 10 October.
The game against Belgium on 7 October will be Serbia's first outing in front of their own supporters since the dissolution of the former Serbia and Montenegro. Their previous match in Belgrade against Azerbaijan was played behind closed doors as part of a sanction carried over from the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
