Re: @pepo I noticed the same, I guess he wants to get summer off. He is 30 and he has to take care of his health. Especially since World Championship is in September.
Stankovic is also missing but he decided to retire from the national team

Petrić is still having problems with injury, we are hoping for him, to be ready on WC2018.
