FPJ's dream XI predictions for Serbia and Switzerland; Live Blog

Harry Kane England Tunisia

Costa Rica, who lost to Brazil earlier on Friday, have been eliminated after back-to-back defeats but, with Brazil and Switzerland on four points and Serbia one further back, it means it's all to play for on matchday three.

After holding off Brazil in their opening contest, Switzerland will be eager to pick up their first win at the expense of Serbia.

A dream start ensued for Serbia when Aleksandar Mitrovic headed home a cross from Dusan Tadic in the fifth minute. The team didn't panic when Brazil had scored the goal and taken the lead. Serbia does not recognize Kosovo's independence and relations between the two countries remain tense.

In the tournament's first come-from-behind victory, Xhaka made it 1-1 in the 52nd minute with a powerful shot through a crowded penalty area, before Shaqiri added the other in the 90th minute after running clear of the Serbian defence. "But there is this history between them and the Albanians in our team, so it was not easy". "They're trying to provoke us but we won't get dragged down to their level".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gives birth to a baby girl
The baby, whose name has not yet been announced , was born on Thursday at Aukland City Hospital in New Zealand and weighs 7.3lbs. The PM follows former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto as the second world leader to give birth while in office.

"I'm not into politics", Serbia's coach, Mladen Krstajic, told reporters before the game.

Both Shaqiri and Xhaka pointedly celebrated scoring by making a "double eagle" gesture with their hands representing the Kosovo flag, viewed as a symbol of defiance.

He has the flags of Switzerland and Kosovo tattooed on his left arm.

For 47 minutes, Serbia had one foot in the last 16, playing a muscular yet intelligent football that was immediately reminiscent of Croatia's 3-0 win over Argentina the night before.

Sarri identifies first signing for Chelsea
Chelsea could have to pay £4.5m if they were to employ Sarri before July 1 but that figure would go up to £7m after that date. The coach is known to be a master tactician and would also work well within the structure of the club's transfer policy.

9 - the number of World Cup matches Nati captain Stefan Lichtsteiner has now played for Switzerland, breaking the national record held by Charles Antenen since Chile 1962.

Coach Vladimir Petkovic brought on attackers Breel Embolo and Mario Gavranovic in a bid to force a victor, and Gavranovic forced a smart save from Stojkovic from a close range effort with 10 minutes remaining. Mario Gavranovic, Josip Drmic and youngster Breel Embolo proved highly effective second-half substitutes who exposed a visibly tiring back line.

In a frenetic first half, Switzerland had more of the ball but were sloppy with it, giving away possession in advanced positions and sending Serbia on the break. Switzerland have participated in the last three World Cups and European Championship - 27 points in the qualification is remarkable!
