Serbia’s player list is missing names like Andrea Lekic, Sanja Damnjanovic, Katarina Tomasevic, Dragana Cvijic, Kristina Liscevic, Ivana Milosevic and Jelena Trifunovic. That wa sthe reason Sacha Boskovic gave playing time to many debutees, but is still unclear which squad Serbia will present at ECh.

The match started with a great Serbian play, they took the lead 5-2, but France’s defense and goalkeeper performance has improved, Amandine Leynaud stopped at 50% saves, France overturned the result, 5-10(19.min), 8-13 before break.

In the second half Serbia managed to close the gap,16 -18 (48.min), Jovana Risovic reached also 50%  at saving percentage, but the  attack was not working at Serbians.

France won the game 18 -22.

Good performances at Serbian team Biljana Bandelier (Filipovic)and Jovana Stojlkovic, Risovic in goal in the second half.  France had also three debutees today, but the best performances was shoewed by experienced players like Paule Baudouine, Amandine Leynaud and Koumba Cissé on the right-wing position.
