Watch: Aleksandar Kolarov Strikes A Potential Fatal Blow To Ireland's World Cup Hopes

He's one of the most famous players in Serbia's side, and Aleksandar Kolarov may have struck a fatal blow against Ireland's World Cup hopes.

The former Manchester City defender is in a rich vein of goalscoring form during the international break. He also scored on Saturday in the 3-0 over Moldova.

The tenth goal of Kolarov's international career, it could put the Serbs five points clear of Ireland with just two games remaining in the qualification campaign.

Less than ten minutes into the second half, the Roma defender's shot flew past Darren Randolph, giving the Bray native no chance.

In the first game between the sides this day last year, Daryl Murphy scored a late goal to get Ireland in the draw in Belgrade. It looks like similar heroics may be needed tonight.
