Marko Grujic provided a small update on the condition of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic ahead of Serbia’s second World Cup game against Cameroon.
The 27-year-old Biancocelesti star played the full 90 minutes of Serbia’s World Cup opener against Brazil, where they suffered a painful 2-0 loss. Milinkovic-Savic was kept quiet in the match and failed to shine on the world stage, leaving him disappointed come the full time whistle.
During the match, Milinkovic-Savic picked up a knock after a heavy challenge, leaving Serbia a little concerned ahead of their clash with Cameroon.
Discussing Milinkovic-Savic’s condition to the national team’s media outlets (via LazioNews24), Grujic seemed calm despite the concerns.
As for Sergej and his injury, it’s not for us to think about it, I think everyone will do everything to make sure he’s okay.
We all know how much Sergej means to the national team. We hope that everything will go well.
The 27-year-old Milinkovic-Savic is an experienced international, having made 37 caps for his national team since his debut in November 2017. Across his 37 games, the midfielder has scored six goals and provided seven assists, being a bright spot in the Serbia squad.
Serbia’s defeat to Brazil in their opener puts the pressure on in their second game with Cameroon.
