Aleksandar Kolarov Whips In Stunning Free-Kick Against Costa Rica

Serbia's four previous World Cup victories came via scores of 1-0.

The Costa Rica Beer Factory, in Barrio Escalante, in San Jose, is offering its patrons 10 mattresses and a 76′ screen (and three smaller ones) to watch the game in a bed.

Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic handed Branislav Ivanovic his 104th global appearance, making the former Chelsea centre-back the most-capped player in his nation's history, moving clear of Dejan Stankovic in the all-time list. Find out by following our live matchcast.

"The match against Switzerland is going to be the most hard one", he said.

Milinkovic-Savic's spectacular bicycle-kick was well saved, even if he was incorrectly flagged offside, and Keylor Navas was decisive when Aleksandar Mitrovic went one-on-one.

Krstajic's relief was matched in equal measure by the disappointment of Costa Rica boss Oscar Ramirez, whose side are in a precarious position.

Aleksandar Kolarov's goal was enough to secure a Serbian 1-0 victory over Costa Rica in yesterday's Group E fixture.

In a Group E curtain-jerker that was a little short on quality, it took a moment of brilliance from Aleksandar Kolvarov to snatch the win for Serbia against Costa Rica. With Brazil and Switzerland, the other two teams in the group, the result of this game is of great significance to both sides as the loser is highly unlikely to make it to the next round.

"We should've capitalised on our opportunities like they did".

"I do feel really proud of the fact that I'm the first Costa Rican-born coach to lead our team at a World Cup". The key to Serbia's defensive success will rely in Nemanja Matic and Milinkovic Savic as defensive midfielders.

The first half ended goalless.

If anything, Serbia looked more likely to add a second than Costa Rica. Serbia's Branislav Ivanovic became his country's most capped player with 105 appearances, but he and his fellow defenders had a comfortable outing as the Europeans enjoyed the majority of possession in the first half, reports Xinhua news agency.

Now with Italian club Lazio, rumours have swirled that Manchester United might be interested in the dynamic 23-year-old midfielder.
