A stunning free-kick from Serbia captain Aleksandar Kolarov was enough to separate the two sides in their World Cup Group E clash with Costa Rica on Sunday.
The former Manchester City defender curled the ball over the wall after 56 minutes, to score from 25 yards.
These were the best of the jokes from Costa Rica 0-1 Serbia at Russia 2018:
Serbia sounds like a pint with a knighthood #CRCSRB

If you squint your eyes a bit it looks like you’re watching a Clasico #CRCSRB

After watching many World Cups and Olympics, I’ve come to the conclusion that too many nations use red, white and blue in their flags.
It’s time to redo the flags of the world. One of my first initiatives when I come to power… #CRCSRB

Disappointed that only Kolarov has a name not ending in -ic but luckily Milninkovic-Savic has two -ic's thereby restoring the cosmic balance. #CRCSRB

All of the Serbian players’ names end with what sounds like the word itch, so I hope they don’t make any rash decisions #CRCSRB

My 2 day old son doesn’t think Serbia or Costa Rica should be at the World Cup.
“Serbia’s systematic racism and Costa Rica’s poor LGBT rights records speak for themselves, I refuse to watch either of them” he says, while scrolling through The Guardian on his iPad. #WokeCup
