Milos Veljkovic was once again in the starting eleven for Serbia in their second group game of the World Cup. The central defender played 78 minutes of the 3-3 draw against Cameroon and along with his teammates went through an emotional rollercoaster.

Serbia overturned a 1-0 deficit prior to half time, scoring twice in a three minute spell just before the break. Having drawn, Veljkovic and Serbia still have a chance of progressing to the last 16, but they will have to win their final group game against Switzerland. The game on Friday evening (02.12.2022, 20:00 CET) will be particularly special for the Werder defender, who was born in Basel and also holds Swiss citizenship.

On Sunday evening, Niclas Füllkrug had an unforgettable night, scoring his first goal at a World Cup. Having scored the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Spain, the goalscorer secured a point for Germany, putting Hansi Flick’s team in a better position to qualify for the knock-out stages ahead of their final group game. The Germany national team play Costa Rica on Thursday (01.12.2022, 20:00 CET) in their third group game, and are hoping that they can win, and Spain will do them a favour against Japan.
