September 4, 2015 - Adem Ljajić scores in win over Armenia
"Serbia 2-0 Armenia. A first-half Levon Hayrapetyan own goal was added to by Adem Ljajić after the break, but neither side can now progress from Group I.... The cushion was increased eight minutes after the interval, however, despite Kasparov's best efforts; the goalkeeper parried an Aleksandar Kolarov effort after yet another attack down the left, but this time Ljajić was there to snap up the rebound." - UEFA

June 7, 2015 - Branislav Ivanovic scores brace in win over Azerbaijan
"Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic scored twice and Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic also chipped in with a goal as Serbia recorded a 4-1 international friendly win over Azerbaijan. Ivanovic opened the scoring with a header from a corner and also scored his side’s third goal when the ball dropped kindly for him in the box just a few yards out. Markovic put the icing on the cake with a fourth goal when he shifted the ball onto his right foot on the edge of the box and fired low into the bottom corner." - Off the Post

November 18, 2014 - Radoslav Petrovic & Nemanja Gudelj score in win over Greece
"Serbia beat Greece 2-0 in a lackluster friendly match Tuesday on goals from Radoslav Petrovic and Nemanja Gudelj as the two countries attempted to recover from humiliating home defeats in European qualifying. Petrovic headed in a freekick from Zoran Tosic in the 60th minute as the Serbs' attention to set pieces eventually payed off at the 3,500-seat Perivolia stadium in Crete. Gudelj caught goalkeeper Panagiotis Glykos off guard, curling a long-distance shot past him in injury time." - Times Union

September 7, 2014 - Aleksandar Kolarov draws with France
"Aleksandar Kolarov's fantastic free-kick denied France their second win in a week as Les Bleus were held to a 1-1 draw in their international friendly against Serbia in Belgrade. The Manchester City defender's 25-yard strike flew past helpless France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris 10 minutes from time as the hosts warmed up for their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with a fine result against the competition hosts. Didier Deschamps' men took an early lead through Paul Pogba's strike but could not follow up victory against Spain on Thursday with another win at Stadion FK Partizan." - SkySports
