Musovic, Serbia Looking For Revenge


Serbian guard Miljana Musovic has warned Spain to expect a mighty battle when both sides face each other in the final of the U20 European Championship for Women.

Mosovic, who poured in a game-high 20 points in the semi-final triumph against France, is all fired up for Sunday's top clash.

"We are all thrilled to be in the final," said Musovic.

"Individual performances are secondary as long as it helps my team win.

Miljana Musovic is leading her team in both scoring and rebounding.
"Our aim coming into this tournament was to reach the final and now we are here."

Serbia will have an added reason to want to beat Spain having lost against them last year at the UMCOR U18 European Championship for Women title game as well as earlier in this year's U20 European Championship.

"We know who were are facing," said Musovic.

"We have met Spain many times and we really hope to avenge last year's defeat.

"One thing is clear, we will all give 200 percent."

Musovic leads her team with 16 points per game and 3.9 assists a contest.

A narrow defeat to Spain earlier in the tournament didn't hinder a defiant Serbia, who went onto break France's unbeaten run on their way to the final.

"Despite our defeat to Spain, we showed that we are a team that is strong mentally and physically," said Musovic.

Musovic has high hopes that this will be a summer of domination by Serbia in the women's game, as earlier this month, the U18 team clinched gold in Novi Sad.

"It meant a lot for our nation to win the U18 Championship," she said.

"It would be fantastic to win take home this title."
