Novak Djokovic Praises Serbian Under-20 Football Squad on Twitter- View: 2606 by Ammad Raja
World no. 1 Novak Djokovic wasted no time and took to Twitter immediately to congratulate Serbia’s Under-20 squad, who came out triumphant with a 2-1 victory over Brazil to claim the Under-20 World Cup.
The game was tied till 90 minutes and Nemanja Maksimovic's effort right at the depth with only three minutes remaining in the extra time allotted, gave the Serbian victory. This was Serbia’s first ever title since becoming an independent nation and it wasn't an easy feat to beat a nation like Brazil, who were gunning for a sixth title.
Serbia took the lead at 70 minutes, but parity was restored a couple of minutes later and the match remained at 1-1 until the 117th minute. Djokovic, who is taking a well-earned rest after an impressive first half of the year, congratulated his fellow countrymen on Twitter.
The world no. 1 returns to tour at Wimbledon starting from the 29th of June.
