“To be world champion, it's necessary to have a good team of course, but it is especially important to have a good general spirit. The "Team Spirit",” Milutinovic told Goal.

“There must also be accountability for everyone. There are many things necessary to go to the end in such a high competition: to be efficient, to have experience, a good coach.

“Many things can make a difference. That's why I always say that football skills are not enough. It's a whole package.

“Everything has to be put together so that the players can express themselves in the best way. We need to surround ourselves with competent people and work with young players upstream.

“Build a group. I am not an expert on African football, but I know that all these things have to be put together so that a team can triumph at the highest level.”
