Dusan Tadic is an attacking midfielder who generally plays on the left wing but can also be deployed on the right. His best matches for Serbia have arguably come on the right side of midfield, from where he scored four goals and set up several others during FIFA World Cup™ qualification for Russia.

The 29-year-old made his professional debut for youth club Vojvodina in 2006/07 before moving to Groningen and Twente in the Netherlands. He has been playing for Southampton since 2014 and was named Serbian Player of the Year in 2016.

Tadic represented his country at the 2008 Men’s Olympic Football Tournament in Beijing and is one of the most experienced players in the Serbia squad. His pace and ability to read the game enable him to play alongside Aleksandar Mitrovic in attack, while the national team’s performances can sometimes hinge on his individual form.
