Radomir Antic has extended his contract to coach Serbia through the qualifying campaign for the European championship.

The Serbian Football Federation said Friday it extended Antic's deal until 2011, calling his results "excellent" after he led the team to next year's World Cup.

The FFS says it will extend Antic's contract further if the team qualifies for Euro 2012.

Antic took over the team in August 2008, and helped the team win its World Cup qualifying group ahead of France.

In South Africa at the World Cup, Serbia will play Germany, Ghana and Australia in the group stage.
