FIFA World Cup 2018, Costa Rica vs Serbia Highlights: The second half of the match a surge of energy from Costa Rica early on in the second half. A successful free kick from Aleksandr Kolarov separates the two sides as Serbia start off their World Cup 2018 campaign on a winning note. Plenty of late drama as the referee checks with VAR for two potential red card attempts. But nothing came to Costa Rica’s aid as they looked dull up front, and created very little to challenge Serbia, who were happy sitting too deep with the 1 goal lead. Mitrovic failed to double the lead in the final few minutes, and his disappointing run in the match failed to score any goal. Serbia were happy to sit in their own half after scoring the goal while Costa Rica barely made any potential threat up front. It was an easy win for Serbia, in the end, but still far from a convincing one. (FIFA 2018 World Cup News | Fixtures | Points Table)
