Vasilije Micic will travel to Istanbul, could play against Turkey / News


Vasilije Micic, who injured his right ankle in Serbia’s game against Greece, will travel to Istanbul and could play against Turkey on Sunday night.

At first glance, Vasilije Micic’s injury in Serbia’s 2023 World Cup qualifiers game against Greece on Thursday night didn’t look good.

The Anadolu Efes star was moaning in pain and had to be carried off the pitch as he was unable to walk on his foot after spraining his right ankle in the second quarter.

After the match, Serbian national team coach Svetislav Pesic said the player’s condition was not good, adding that the medical team would do their best.

For more than 24 hours no one could quite say how serious his injury was, although the player himself was quick to reassure that he could return to action soon enough.

But now the mystery seems to have been solved. According to Mozzartsport, Micic joined the Serbian national team which traveled to Turkey to face hosts Turkey at Sinan Erdem Sports Hall (8:00 PM CEST).

It’s still unclear whether the 28-year-old guard will play in this game, but judging by the fact that he was included in the 14-man squad, there’s a chance he could play.

After beating Greece, Serbia are 2-3 in their group, but they are still close to bottom. Ditto for Turkey, which was crushed by Latvia (111-85), behind an unprecedented avalanche of three points (20 shots made) by the hosts.
