Stankovic excited about century

Dejan Stankovic admitted that although at times he feels he "was born to wear the national team shirt" he never thought he would reach 100 caps. Today, when Serbia meet the Faroe Islands, he will. "It's amazing," said the Inter Milan midfielder. "I've always strived to play for the national team but I never thought about this milestone, you can't afford to. You always have to just concentrate on the next match."

That applies to Serbia hoping to overhaul Slovenia in second place in UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying Group C.

Vladimir Petrovic's men trail on goal difference but with a match in hand. Group leaders Italy have an all but unassailable lead. "At the moment, with all honesty, I am 100% focused on Faroe Islands. Three points and a big step to the Euro play-offs will be the greatest present for me," he added.
