Tough assignment for Greece

June 29, 2005 – With Serbia and Montenegro already assured of a finals spot due to their position as hosts, Greece, who need two victories to stay in contention for the Final Round, will need to be right on top of their game to do the double against their more fancied rivals in Novi Sad and Belgrade.

Serbia and Montenegro still have everything to play for, in terms or being ready for the Final Round in Belgrade, and they won’t be lying down easily, particularly in front of their home fans.

The world number three has been in good form in recent weeks, which is no doubt the script that coach Ljubomir Travica has written, with four wins from six matches, including three from four at home.

This turn around in form has not surprisingly coincided with the return of Serbia and Montenegro’s big guns Ivan Miljkovic, Andrija Geric and captain Nikola Grbic as the “blue team” look in ominous form ahead of their starring moment – hosting the World League finals.

Realistically, Greece, who are 5-5 for the Intercontinental Round, will be fortunate to come away with one victory considering Serbia and Montenegro are really starting to hit their straps.

First match is in Novi Sad on Friday at 18:10 GMT (20:10 local time) before the second game is played in Belgrade on Saturday at the same time.
