Fans react on Twitter to Southampton ace Dusan Tadic's World Cup performance

For Oscar Ramirez-coached Costa Rica, the aim in this World Cup is to improve on their best performance of a quarter-final which they achieved in 2014 and they have brought to Russian Federation the core group that did wonders in Brazil. Brazil, one of the favorites in Russian Federation, will play Costa Rica the same day in St. Petersburg.

"We are going to forget Costa Rica now and move forward", Krstajic said.

"The World Cup won't change my life, I don't come here to show myself", Campbell said in Samara.

Playing at the tournament for the first time, the Sunderland defender is expected to start for Óscar Ramírez's side at the Samara Arena. 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.

Costa Rica had the last say of the half when some great footwork from Francisco Calvo saw him beat two defenders before firing a shot from the edge of the box narrowly wide of the left-post. The key to Serbia's defensive success will rely in Nemanja Matic and Milinkovic Savic as defensive midfielders.

The 23-year-old midfielder was the standout player in his side's 1-0 victory and he proved his worth on the field after a stunning debut performance in Russian Federation.

Novak Djokovic insists he would happily miss a first appearance for Serbia in the World Cup final if it means he is back in the Wimbledon title match.

We have been treated quite well in the early stages of this World Cup.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, whose non-selection during qualifying led to Slavo Muslin's sacking as Serbia coach, nearly broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, but his overhead kick was well kept out by Real Madrid 'keeper Keylor Navas in the Costa Rica goal.

However, back in 2014, Costa Rica managed to top the Group consisting of England, Italy and Uruguay so its highly improbable that the opposing teams will take Costa Rica lightly this year.

Now with Italian club Lazio, rumors have swirled that Manchester United might be interested in the dynamic 23-year-old Milinkovic-Savic.. The goal wouldn't have counted, as Milinkovic-Savic was offside, but it was a handsome effort nonetheless.
