We’ll bounce back, says Serbia coach Radomir Antic

Serbia coach Radomir Antic has refused to blame his players

after they lost 1-0 to Ghana at the World Cup.

Serbia conceded a 85th-minute goal from the penalty spot in the

Group D match at Loftus Versveld on Sunday as Ghana recorded

Africa’s first win at the 2010 World Cup.

But Antic said Monday his team followed instructions and created

more chances in the second half.

He says “the guys played according to plan. I don’t think they

did anything wrong. I am confident we will bounce back.”

Serbia plays on Friday against Germany, which thrashed Australia

4-0 on Sunday.

Serbia goalkeeper Vladmir Stojkovic is not giving up on the team

advancing, saying “we lost the battle but we’ve not lost the

war.”
