Costa Rica vs. Serbia - Football Match Report

Costa Rica's best opening came after 12 minutes when Giancarlo Gonzalez was picked out unmarked at the far post by David Guzman following a short corner routine but he headed well over. Brazil, one of the favorites in Russian Federation, will play Costa Rica the same day in St. Petersburg. Serbia didn't qualify for the 2014 edition in Brazil.

Whenever Serbia played a qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup, Milinkovic-Savic was surprisingly not called up to the squad.

With Brazil clear favourites to go through to the knockout stages in top spot, these sides will be keen to gain all three points as they look to find an advantage over the rest for second place, leading to a potentially exciting fixture at the Samara Arena at lunchtime on Sunday.

They have shown little in qualification for Russian Federation or in their warmup matches to suggest they will now cast off the shackles and, given the sport's recent history of rewarding teams who play it safe, they may feel there is little incentive to change.

"It was an fantastic goal", Costa Rica defender Bryan Oviedo said of Kolarov's effort. This ex-Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic, and the defender Roma Aleksandar Kolarov, midfielder of "Manchester United" Nemanja MATIC.

A host of native players like Chris Gayle, Andre Russel, Sunil Narine and Carlos Brathwaite will also play for the various teams. Warner has also agreed to feature for Sydney's Randwick Petersham and in Darwin's NT Strike League as he serves his suspension.

This reaction from Matic was surprising as Serbia was already winning the match and any time wasting tactic by Costa Rica's coach would have gone in Serbia's favour. Free-kicks are proving rather more successful at this World Cup than the one in Brazil four years ago.

Milinkovic-Savic spent the bulk of the first half shouting because he didn't get the ball where he wanted it, and too many crosses missed the mark because the intended target took a different route.

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

Serbia's attacking players had a field day against a struggling Los Ticos defence, which was set up as a back three - with the wing-backs often leaving their flanks exposed at times.

Their early opportunities had come despite Serbia, being driven forward by the impressive Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, controlling for large spells. 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.
