Milos Veljkovic is part of the Serbian ‘Golden Generation’ that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand in 2015. He won his first senior cap in November 2017.
A central defender who can also play in defensive midfield, Veljkovic was born in Basel and spent 11 years with his hometown club before moving to Tottenham Hotspur while still a youth player. He made his Premier League debut for Spurs in April 2014 but was unable to establish himself in the first team, spending loan spells at Middlesbrough and Charlton before moving to Werder Bremen in mid-2016, where he now regularly features in the Bundesliga.
Many believe that Veljkovic will only break into the national team after the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia.
