Kolarov's goal, which curled over the wall in the 56th minute, gave Serbia a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica at Samara Stadium in the team's opening match in Russian Federation.

Aleksandar Kolarov puts Serbia ahead with a remarkable free kick.

"Qualifying for Russian Federation was a great success, we are here on merit, but we are not going to be satisfied merely by being here, we want to go a step further".

Costa Rica has only been able to grab two wins in their last 10 encounters and have not having the best time in the previous games.

The first three letters of Navas' first name described just how instrumental he was.

Head coach Oscar Ramirez has come under fire over his use of negative tactics in the opening game, but Campbell thinks his side are still in with a shout to get out of the group, despite the difficulty of the upcoming matches.

"I'm happy with the way we played, but we have to keep our feet on the ground", said Krstajic, who only took charge last October. The main rising star of the team Mladen krstajić (our former teammate Viktor Skripnik at Werder) - 23-year-old player of Lazio Sergei Milinkovic-Savic (talented guy already offer 100 million euros), which, however, in qualifying not held for the Serbs... any match.

In the FIFA World Cup 2018, the teams Costa Rica and Serbia are ready to face each other.

Costa Rica defender Ronald Matarrita was ruled out of the World Cup earlier this week because of a right hamstring injury.

Serbia finally broke the deadlock when Aleksandr Kolarov unleashed a scorching free-kick from 30-yards that gave Navas no chance on 56 minutes. Serbia had a close opportunity before the half-time whistle but the chance was wasted with Costa Rica defenders coming to their goalkeeper's rescue quickly.

Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic, who replaced Slavoljub Muslin a year ago, put together a veteran defense with Kolarov, who plays for Roma, and former Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic. It was my debut with the national team. The flag was also raised for offside but replays indicated there may have been a case for VAR to overrule had Milinkovic-Savic found the net. "We know everything about Switzerland and now we will watch them against Brazil to make sure we don't miss anything".
