Serbia actually quite matured under Djordjevic, not necessarily his coaching magic, but cohesion work he did on the team + actual maturing of some key players (Teo and Bjelica are not kids any more). It would surely be interesting to see a match-up of Spain in play-off mode and this Serbia in thrashing Boomers mode. That one would be a game to remember, don't dare to say who'd win.
