Vlahovic: 'I have dreamed of this moment'

Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic said he has ‘always dreamed of this moment’ after scoring his first goal for Serbia in a 5-0 win over Russia.

The 20-year-old, capped four times by Serbia, scored the 3-0 goal after coming off the bench to replace Nemanja Radonjic after only 31 minutes yesterday.

The win helped Hungary win Nations League B Group 3, but the Serbians didn’t manage to leapfrog their opponents as they secured their only win in six games in the competition.

“I have always dreamed of this moment,” Vlahovic told after the match. “I’m ready for any role in this team, whether playing from the start or coming off the bench.”

Vlahovic has played six games in Serie A this term, scoring once for the Viola so far and will return to a new coach at the Artemio Franchi, where Cesare Prandelli has replaced Beppe Iachini this month.
