A few changes to the Faroese team against Serbia on Tuesday

A few changes have been made to the Faroese team that has travelled to Serbia. Midfielder Súni Olsen, who was superb against Italy, has stayed home as he’s expecting to become a father any day.

The same is the reason why left back Einar Hansen, on the bench against Italy, has stayed at home.

Brian Kerr has instead drafted in uncapped youngster Gilli Sørensen, who currently plays for TB Tvøroyri in the second tier. The 19-year old forward has a past in Aberdeen. Kerr often picks a youngster to give him some experience and to get a smell of the international atmosphere.

There have also been some rotations between the goalkeepers as Jákup Mikkelsen, who pulled out of the Italy game because of injury, has travelled with the team to Serbia. And the word is that if he is fit, Kerr will pick him ahead of René Tórgarð who played superbly against Italy. But the latest news is that Mikkelsen hasn´t recovered and will be out of action. To cover for Tórgarð, Kerr has selected B36 goalkeeper Meinhardt Joensen. Kristian Joensen, who was deputy against Italy is back with the U-21 team who also play against Serbia on Tuesday.
