This is why Nemanja Matic had a tussle with Costa Rica coach

Costa Rican media and fans have expressed pessimism on their football team's chances at the World Cup following the 0-1 defeat to Serbia. The owners said they will be preparing the place early Sunday morning for people to enjoy the game with all the comfort, even in pajamas if they so choose.

That is because the showpiece in Moscow is scheduled to kick off just hours after the Wimbledon men's final begins at the All England Club on July 15.

Navas got a fingertip to push away Dusan Tadic's cross-shot, while Mitrovic twice failed to make the most of Milinkovic-Savic assists.

But pressed on the potential fixture clash, Djokovic laughed off talk of mixed feelings. "Wow", he told reporters.

"We dedicate this win to our Director, and we want him to know that we are all supporting him", said Kolarov, referring to the 45-year-old Bunjevcevic, who assumed the post with the Serbian federation on August 2016. "It's the first time there are no clans or cliques within this squad of players".

Krstajić was appointed manager of Serbia in October, the same month that his predecessor Slavoljub Muslin had done all the hard work to clinch World Cup qualification in a group that included Austria, the Republic of Ireland and Wales, among others.

The goal also represented a new record in this World Cup.

Serbia's Nemanja Matic, meanwhile, was involved in an ugly confrontation with a member of Costa Rica coaching staff in injury time as the Manchester United midfielder tried to retrieve the ball after it went out of play.

But there was some uncertainty surrounding the team after a pair of friendly losses heading into the World Cup, including a 4-1 rout by Belgium a week ago.

"This was the best way to start campaign".

Aleksandar Kolarov scored the only goal of the game midway through the second half to hand Serbia all three points.

"It's a different sport, but we share a lot of things in common as athletes". "We practiced them on the training ground". We only have that for the Davis Cup. Serbia now leads Group E with three points, ahead of pre-tournament favorite Brazil.
