Apart from two FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup Qualifiers matches in 2019, the last time the former Panathinaikos OPAP Athens goalkeeper played for his home country was in 2016 at the Olympic Games in Brazil.

“It’s a nice feeling, I wanted to play national basketball,” Nedovic said today. “The last time I played in Rio was in 2016, then due to various unfortunate circumstances I couldn’t make the team. I’m ready, I see the others are ready We have a great team, we look pretty strong, I’m looking forward to whatever comes next.”

Nedovic will play under coach Svetislav Pesic again, his first time since 2012 when the guard played for Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade, a team he returned to play during this offseason.

Pesic is generally known as one of the strictest coaches in European basketball. Things have changed, however, says Nedovic.

“It’s another story. He was very tough and strict before. Now he’s more flexible, more moody,” the player explained. “He is aware that they are all players who have been playing at the highest level for many years. We have Jokic, who is probably the best player in the world at the moment. It is important that we adapt to him and he to us. , to create a good atmosphere, the rest will be easy.”

Serbia will face the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Finland, Israel and Poland from September 2-8 in Group D in Prague.
