Serbia are currently fourth in the five-team Group I with just one point. Coach Dick Advocaat has said that every match from now on is effectively a knockout tie. The Dutchman has said he will discuss his future as Serbia coach after this match. Serbia will be counting on Nemanja Matic's authority in midfield to make it through Denmark's solid, physical defense, according to local paper Sportski Zurnal. The Chelsea FC man said: "We are motivated. We all know what it means to play for the national team. The pressure ahead of the match is greater than it should be but we know how to deal with it. We need to be patient, to wait for opportunities in attack and not rush into the match."
The big news in Belgrade is that Manchester City FC's Aleksandar Kolarov will not be fit for the match against Denmark and will be replaced by Duško Tošić on the left side of defense. Serbia coach Dick Advocaat is yet to reveal who will play in attack for the Orlovi.
