Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic missed his first nomination for the Austrian national football team due to a faulty mobile phone.
National coach Franco Foda could not reach him “because I had problems with my mobile phone the week before,” said the VfB Stuttgart attacker from “Bild am Sonntag”. The 23-year-old only found out about his happiness with a delay.
“Read it the day before publication”
“I only heard from the secretary of the association the day before the publication of my nomination. But then I did not know whether I would be available again – like last time – or whether I would be part of the last team.”
As the secretary informed him at the time, this time he is likely to be in the last squad because of his three Bundesliga goals so far. With the Austrians, Kalajdzic now plays against Greece, Northern Ireland and Romania.
