Serbia’s U21 team: proof that anything can be taken apart

The reigning World champions have lost to Spain by 0:1 in a match marked by their missed shots and chaotic play. The U21 European Championship is done for team Serbia.

A mere shadow of the team that brought Serbia new faith in football only two years ago.

Happy Birthday, Andrija Prlainović!

Another Dolphin turns 30. Andrija Prlainović was born in the coastal town of Herceg Novi. Having loved sports since childhood, Prlainović ended up in water polo, as so many others living by the sea.

Teova jubilarna!

Teodosić turning 30 (highlights)

Na današnji dan 1987. godine u Valjevu, rođen je najbolji srpski plej novije generacije Miloš Teodosić. Kapiten reprezentacije, višestruki MVP, osvajač bronzane olimpijske medalje i evroligaški šampion sa CSKA, napunio je jubilarnih trideset godina.

Uz sve čestitke Teu, moramo se podsetiti njegovih bravura, podizanja nivoa ekipe od momenta kada kroči na teren i verovatno najdražeg momenta domaće javnosti. ONE trojke protiv Španije.  Continue reading Teova jubilarna!

Waterpolo: just like always

Delfini kao i uvek

Srpski Delfini, savladali su selekciju Nemačke sa ubedljivih 20:3. Uprkos odsustvu nekih od ključnih golgetera, podmlađena ekipa Dejana Savića, ruinirala je goste, pokazujući spremnost za nastavak odbrane Svetske lige.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Poslednji dan Stare godine, poznat je kao dan za rezimiranje, rekapitulaciju iz prethodnih 365. Sport nam je tokom 2016. godine dao mnogo razloga za veselje. Olimpijci, mladi fudbaleri, košarkaši, vaterpolisti…
