With an average of 187.1 cm, needless to say that Serbia is the selection with the highest average height of this World Cup! With 2.02m, goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic is the 2e tallest player in this edition, and many players exceed 1.9m, including stars Sergej Milinković-Savić and Vlahović. Level set pieces, opponents are warned!

Serbia’s chances at the 2022 World Cup

4 years ago, in a very close group, Dragan Stojković’s men were eliminated in the group stage because they were beaten by Brazil and Switzerland. This time again the Seleçao is the favourite, but the battle promises to be much tighter with the Nati while Cameroon will act as Petit Poucet.

History of Serbia at the World Cup: 13th participation; including 2 semi-finals.
