WC2010 review: Serbia

Serbia’s World Cup performance could very well be described as disappointing despite the fact they were in a very tough group.

Although Germany did not provide too much of a problem for the Serbians, Ghana and Australia brought about their downfall and they ended on the bottom of Group D which was certainly not expected.

Just two goals in three matches was not enough for Radomir Antic’s men and I’m sure that players, team officials and fans alike will not look back at South Africa 2010 with fond memories.

Finished: 23rd
Record: Wins – 1; Draws – 0; Losses – 2; Points – 3
Matches: Ghana (0-1), Germany (1-0), Australia (1-2)
Goals: 2
Against: 3

Milos Krasic (Was an ever present danger when going forward but teammates couldn’t make the most of his goalscoring creations)
