Serbia got off to the flawless start in their Group E World Cup campaign with a 1-0 win over Costa Rica today in a game that saw an excellent Nemanja Matić performance.

Brazil will play Switzerland in Group E play at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Sunday, June 17 at 11 a.m.

However, even Navas was unable to keep out Kolarov's free kick in the 56th minute as the Roma left back curled the ball over the defensive wall and into the corner past Navas's left hand, with the Costa Rican keeper at full stretch.

"It is great to have three points in the bag, but we are not finished".

Serbia's Aleksandar Kolarov announced his arrival at the World Cup with a terrific free kick goal against Costa Rica on Sunday.

They are likely to be joined at the back by the inexperienced yet highly-rated 20-year-old centre half Nikola Milenkovic, who has been dubbed the "new Nemanja Vidic" after impressive performances in the build-up.

Serbia is to compete in Group E along with Brazil, Switzerland and Costa Rica.

Serbia had gone close to prior to Kolarov's thunderbolt, Aleksandar Mitrovic - a constant thorn in Costa Rica's side - fluffing his lines when one-on-one with Navas early in the second half. For the Costa Ricans he is the hero of the nation from the time of the 2014 world Cup, when Navas conceded just one goal and brought his team to the quarter-finals.

"If we play to our potential, are honest among ourselves, as we have been these three weeks, then we can do something", Kolarov said in quotes reported on the Serbian FA's official website.

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

Despite being highly rated after helping Serbia to win the under-20s World Cup in 2015, Milinkovic-Savic only has four caps due to failing to impress former coach Slavoljub Muslin, who lost his job partly because he didn't make the most of the midfielder. "The match against Switzerland is going to be the most hard one. We know the eyes of the world are on us".

Milinkovic-Savic gave Navas a workout in the first half, and while he didn't score, he is clearly a potent weapon for Serbia.
