Serbia & Montenegro: Obradovic Releases Duo

13 September 2005

Serbia & Montenegro head coach Zeljko Obradovic has cut Aleksandar Pavlovic and Bojan Popovic from his 12-man squad as the hosts make their final preparations for the European Championship.

After a final training game, played behind closed doors against Zeleznik, Obradovic confirmed that Cleveland Cavaliers guard Pavlovic and new Dinamo Moscow playmaker Popovic would not be part of the Blues' party.

"I've informed the players after our last preparation game that Pavlovic and Popovic are not on the list any more," Obradovic said.

"Both of them have more then enough quality to be in our national team, but we can have just 12 players in this competition."

Squad: Marko Jaric, Igor Rakocevic, Vule Avdalovic, Dejan Bodiroga, Milan Gurovic, Vlado Scepanovic, Vladimir Radmanovic, Dejan Milojevic, Dejan Tomasevic, Nenad Krstic, Darko Milicic and Zeljko Rebraca.
