Serbia has maybe the starngest squad of the four participants, since they are struggeling with injuries at their key-players.
Andrea Lekic has suffered an ankle injury two weeks ago, not able to train, Sanja Damnjanovic was not allowed to play the last two CL round in Viborg, her knee won’t tolerate an ECh with so many matches. Kristina Liscevic has also suffered an ankle injury in last weeks, something which stops her to be able to play at ECh.
Dragana Cvijic is not in the squad for Möbelringen of unknown reasons. Rightwinger Ivana Milosevic is also injured, not able to play in December.
