Andrija Zivkovic was one of the key members of Serbia’s new ‘golden generation’ who won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand in 2015. He scored two goals, with his free-kick against Mexico later named goal of the tournament.
The pacy and technically adept right-winger is most comfortable in an attacking, possession-based system. This could pose a problem at the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, where Serbia are likely to adopt a more defensively compact approach with a focus on counter-attacking.
In 2013, at the age of 17, Zivkovic became the youngest player ever to represent Serbia at senior level. He progressed through the Partizan youth ranks before being named the first team’s youngest-ever captain at the age of 17 years, 7 months and 18 days.
