Milovanovic Ready For Spain

Tournament MVP candidate Jelena Milovanovic believes Serbia will avenge last year's defeat to Spain because they have homecourt advantage.

Serbia take on the defending champions on Sunday at the UMCOR U18 European Championship Women in Novi Sad and much of their hopes will rely on Milovanovic's inspiration.
