Talking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Jovetic says “I still don’t know if I’ll play against Austria. How am I? I’m good… Have I heard from Mancini? We spoke to each other and the support is incredible. He said to me: “Stevan, you understand your body, see how you feel and do what you think is appropriate.” We’ll see.”
The match against Austria is to be played tonight at 20.45 CET and is seen as a must win for his national team. Winning would mean a more concrete possibility of qualifying for Euro 2016, which would be a historic achievement for the side.
Coach Brnovic does not exclude the possibility of Jovetic playing a role in tonights match. “He played in the first leg and was able to make a difference”. Mancini hopes that this time there’ll be no need.
