And again very Inter-esque, parking the bus with a minimal advantage instead of continuing to push and dominate like in the first 70 minutes.

Buying Dalbert instead of kolarov was one of the worst decisions we've made last season. His left foot is amazing!
Savic not doing geart and that is bad news for lotito!

Almost gave an assist just now but Mitrovic makes Eder look like Romario.

Another one, even more Eder-esque situation by Mitrovic after a SMS pass.

Prijovic is definitely a better striker than him.

Kostic, another awful player for Serbia. Missed a sitter earlier with terrible mistepping and just messed up a super easy 4 on 2 counter.

Kostic with 5 Serbian players on one Costa Rican :lol:

- - - Updated - - -

SMS had a super game. He could had two assist if he gave to anyone than the loser Mitrovic.

Pretty sure after a VAR review it's either no card or a red card. Why did the ref give a yellow?

Yep, very dumb decision from the ref... he should know the VAR rule.

Fun bit of info, on domestic news portals pretty much everyone is universally shitting on SMS and his performance this match. Just a bit of different perspective.

As far as Mitrovic goes, I agree with above, he is like a slightly more disciplined Eder. Hope Prijovic starts next one.

He can give a yellow. The reason is that Prijovic is being held back and he swipes his hand to get rid of the contact. It's a yellow for me.

Sergej could have had 2 amazing assists for Mitrovic.

what is the point of having a wall if two players both move away from the ball

I'm pretty confident that Serbian media won't be happy with him unless he leads the team to a World Cup trophy. There's probably also some agents with influence there that want to promote their own guys and the media is the best outlet for that shit. "As good as SMS in the World Cup" and "Better than SMS in the World Cup" etc to inflate their value.

Kolarov was MVP today, but SMS was the 2nd best player.

Nope. Just double checked. You can't give yellow after VAR. I wasn't sure whether the rules for Serie A were same as for the WC. But they are. This was already thoroughly discussed here after the Vecino-Mandzukic incedent.

The thing is that previous NT coach who lead the squad through qualification was very adamant on not calling SMS. Then NT coach was dropped without any particular reason and new one was appointed (Krstajic) despite lacking experience. Public is not completely supporting of this and opinions are very divided. Objectively looking it's all corrupt and someone is definitely getting a bit of cash in return for raising SMS's price. So now you have a very overpriced yet promising player that, like you said, has to deliver above all reasonable expectations in order for public to approve of him.

For some more context, Serie A is not nearly as popular here nowadays as it was about 15 years ago. Most people here only follow EPL and CL, with some people also being into La Liga but not as much. So a lot of people didn't really catch SMS's performances this season. At the same time domestic media is really pushing him as the next best thing since sliced bread and he is getting insane amounts of headlines and coverage.

Kolarov very very good.

But he only had 2 years left, and no resale value.

With or Without Kolarov, we still good, so Dalbert is better buy in my opinion.

Better Gambling two fullback ( Cancelo and Dalbert ) than buy old fullback.

Sad Thing, Cancelo get form, and Dalbert no.

And typical Inter,,,we buy Dalbert and throw away Cancelo .

Just like Alex Telles.. we buy Erkin and throw away him. :eek:blivious:
