He might have found his role at the Etihad Stadium significantly diminished in recent times, but Manchester City full-back Alexsandar Kolarov proved his considerable worth in emphatic fashion by notching for his native Serbia in their World Cup qualifier against Wales last night.
27-year-old Kolarov, who joined City from Serie A outfit Lazio in 2010, scored his country's second goal in the 38th minute at the Cardiff City Stadium with a vicious effort from outside the box that flew past the hapless Boaz Myhill and into his top left-hand corner.
It proved to be a very comfortable evening for Serbia, with goals from Filip Djordjevic and Lazar Markovic either side of Kolarov's strike securing a 3-0 win over Chris Coleman's disappointing outfit.
Serbia sit third in group A, six points adrift of fierce rivals Croatia and eleven behind leaders Belgium. Wales, meanwhile, who gave a brief cameo appearance to Real Madrid star Gareth Bale last night, have slipped to the bottom of the table following Scotland's win over Macedonia
