Match Commentary

93' FULL-TIME: Ivory Coast win their first-ever World Cup match with a stirring comeback; they deserved it, and can depart the tournament proud of their performances in a very tough group.
92' The referee took a moment to realise that Domoraud had already been booked - it took a minute before he handed out the red.
91' OFF! Domoraud is sent off for a second yellow card, handed out for a trailing arm in the face of Milosovic.
89' GOOD DEFENDING! After a long spell of possession, the ball is worked wide to Eboue; he sends over a nice cross, but Djordovic defends well in a challenge with Kone.
88' The fans are cheering every pass now; there is no doubting where the majority of the fans' hearts lie - the Ivory Coast will have won a lot of new supporters after tonight's performance.
87' What a comeback this has been by the Ivory Coast - they looked dead and buried after two awful defensive blunders had put them two-down.
86' I'm not sure why Dindane didn't take the penalty - he was on a hat-trick, but seemed to hand over the duties to the substitute Kalou.
85' GOAL! Kalou takes the spot-kick, sends the keeper the wrong way and sends the Ivory Coast in to raptures.
85' Dindane for his hat-trick...
85' Replays show it was again Dudic who handled as Kalou's shot came flying through the crowd.
85' PENALTY! The referee spots a handball as Kalou fires in a shot through the crowd.
84' ...Boka fires in the shot, but his effort is blocked by a committed S&M defender.
84' Arouna Kone is brought down off the ball; free-kick to the Ivory Coast, in shooting range...
83' Ivory Coast will be kicking themselves if they don't record their first World Cup win; they have had so many chances to take the lead, but have been very wasteful.
82' Bakare Kone goes down, looking for a free-kick, but the referee is unsympathetic to his cries.
81' Boka sends in a good cross from the left, but Jervic comes out to claim; good handling from the S&M keeper.
80' It is still pouring down with rain in Munich; it has been non-stop since the start of the match.
79' ...Boka sends an inswinging centre in to the middle, but Toure heads wide at the back post. Poor marking, poor header.
79' Ivory Coast win a corner...
78' It would have been really tough had Stankovic put S&M back in front there; Ivory Coast have completely dominated the match, and deserve their first-ever World Cup win.
77' WHAT A MISS! The delivery is superb from Djordovic, but the unmarked Stankovic somehow heads wide from six yards out.
77' Djordovic lines up a free-kick for S&M...
77' Most of the neutrals in this crowd seem to be cheering on the Ivory Coast; they have certainly played very well tonight.
76' GREAT MOVE! Kalou beats a couple of men, plays a neat one-two on the edge of the penalty area before clipping a cross to the back post, which Djordovic nods behind for a corner.
75' S&M look like they will be happy with a draw from their final game at this World Cup; they have really been under the cosh since they were reduced to 10 men.
74' IVORY COAST SUB: Kalou comes on to replace Keita; the PSG man comes on to inject some life down the right-hand side.
73' S&M win a couple of free-kicks to relieve the pressure on their defence.
72' GOOD STRIKE! Toure fires in a shot from distance; he strikes it very well, but Jevric is well positioned to save.
72' Keita's shot is deflected out for a corner.
71' Milosovic, making his final appearance in international football, is very isolated up front for S&M - he holds up a long ball, but has no-one to lay it off to and eventually loses possession.
70' The momentum is definitely with Ivory Coast; S&M have hardly got out of their half since the break, such has been the Africans' domination.
69' Ivory Coast have come from 2-0 down to level against the ten remaining men of Serbia and Montenegro, in their final-ever international match.
68' GOAL! Dindane finally equalises after missing a host of chances; planting a header inside the far corner after being picked out by a good cross.
67' S&M SUB: Zigic is withdrawn, and replaced by Milosovic.
67' Toure attempts a cheeky side-footed effort from 30 yards, but Jevric is easily equal to the shot.
66' This is the sort of entertainment that can be produced when two teams playing without fear are thrust together; it has been comfortably been the best game I have seen at this tournament.
65' Dindane could have had four or five goals tonight; he has been a little wasteful in front of goal.
64' SO CLOSE! Dindane flashes a header across the face of goal after a wonderful cross from the left. Great chance for the striker.
64' This match might be a dead rubber, but it has produced a fantastic game of football.
63' OFF THE BAR! Kouassi smashes a stunning shot off the top of the crossbar from fully 35 yards out - a wonderful effort from the defender.
62' Keita's flick puts Djordovic under pressure, and the makeshift left-back concedes a corner.
61' JUST WIDE! Arouna Kone controls a lofted pass well on his chest; his first effort is blocked, but he collects the loose ball before sending a bobbling second shot narrowly wide of the far post.
60' IVORY COAST SUB: Bakare Kone comes on to replace Akale.
59' Ivory Coast are still dominating the possession; S&M are trying to play on the break, but can hardly get the ball.
58' SAVE! The initial free-kick is blocked, but the ball runs out to Akale, who's drive through the crowded penalty area is saved by the legs of Jevric.
58' Gavrancic is booked for a crude challenge on Keita, just outside the penalty area. Free-kick in a very dangerous spot...
57' Ergic tries to slip a pass through to the run of Ilic, but he over-hits his pass and Barry is able to collect.
56' Both defences have had a tough time in these conditions; this time Djordovic has to be alert to mop up after a slip by Dudic.
55' Remember, this is S&M's final-ever match; they should really be showing a little more than this, shouldn't they? They have been very flat for the last half-hour or so.
54' Djordovic is doing a reasonable job as a make-shift left-back; he is nullifying the threat of Eboue very comfortably.
53' Zigic looks a little bit like Hollywood heart-throb Josh Hartnett - you know, the lad who was in Pearl Harbour and 40 Days, 40 Nights?
52' Toure is dispossessed by Duljaj, just outside the penalty area; a shame, because Eboue had been waiting patiently for a pass on his outside.
51' Ivory Coast have had all the ball since the break; Toure ends a spell with possession by blasting a shot high over the bar.
50' Zigic puts himself about in midfield - and there is a lot of him to go around; he looks as though he rips up tree-trunks in his spare time.
49' Remember, S&M are a man down after Nadj got his marching orders for a second yellow card shortly before the break; Djordovic seems to be playing at left-back in the re-shuffle.
48' Eboue is amazed to see a free-kick decision go against him as he is blocked, trying to round Djordovic on the right wing.
47' Ivory Coast have made the better start to this second period, knocking the ball about as they try to find an opening in the S&M defence.
46' Let's hope for as entertaining second half as we had in the first; that was a beauty.
45' Ivory Coast kick off the second half.
47' HALF-TIME: Both sides have shown admireable attacking intent, and the dreadful weather conditions have helped make that one of the most entertaining halfs of the tournament so far. Well done, boys!
45' SECOND YELLOW! OFF! Nadj is sent off for a second bookable offence, a lungeing challenge on Keita.
44' Replays show that the goalkeeper certainly didn't get any contact with Dindane, but the decision to book the striker for diving might have been a little harsh.
43' PENALTY! NO! REFEREE SAYS HE DIVED! Dindane tries to round the goalkeeper, falls to the ground and looks to the referee - who books the striker for diving!
42' ...Gavrancic tries to curl the free-kick around the defensive wall, but an Ivory Coast leg blocks the shot.
42' Domoraud is booked for pulling back Ilic as the striker sprinted through down the left channel. Free-kick on the edge of the Ivory Coast penalty area...
42' AWFUL FINISH! Kone launches a swift counter-attack for Ivory Coast; the ball finds its way to Dindane, but he hits his shot straight at Jevric with only the keeper to beat.
41' GREAT SAVE! Djordovic strikes a free-kick towards the top-corner, but Barry leaps high to tip the ball over for a corner.
41' Zigic lands awkwardly on his arm again, after being fouled in the air by Dororaud.
40' Ivory Coast are looking well capable of getting an equaliser here; S&M don't look too hot in defence, especially down their left side.
39' ...Toure goes for goal, but a player comes out of the S&M defensive wall to block.
38' Duljaj is booked for a shirt-pull on Toure, handing Ivory Coast a good shooting chance from the resulting free-kick...
38' Dudic was booked for the handball that led to the penalty.
37' GOAL! THIS TIME IT COUNTS! Jevric dives very early, and Dindane slots his spot-kick the other way and pulls a goal back for Ivory Coast.
36' GOAL! NO-RETAKE! Dindane slots past Jevric, but the referee spots an encroachment and orders a re-take.
36' Dindane lines up the spot-kick...
35' HANDBALL! PENALTY| Dudic stupidly jumps and handles as he tries to cut out a deep cross. Blatant penalty.
34' Keita does well to beat his man and fire in a low cross, but Dudic clears at the near post.
34' OOH! Stankovic goes for goal from the set-piece, but curls his shot narrowly over the crossbar from 25 yards.
33' Keita is booked for a foul on Djordovic; he protests his innocence, but it doesn't wash with the referee.
32' All tha fans inside the ground in Munch have been handed waterproof ponchos to keep the rain off them; it is quite a sight.
31' Kone is brought down on the left wing as Gavrancic clumsily slides in; free-kick to Ivory Coast.
30' Zigic, at 6ft 8in, is the tallest player at the World Cup; he is a beast, and looks to be handy on the ground, too.
29' Serbia and Montenegro win a free-kick when Zigic is fouled by Keita as the two jumped for a high ball.
29' Yaya Toure is having a good game for Ivory Coast; he keeps things moving in the middle, and always seems to pick out a team-mate with his passes.
28' Zigic is back on the field after having treatment on his arm / shoulder.
27' Ivory Coast have had far more of the ball in this first half-hour, but they just look so vulnerable at the back.
26' Eboue is now the man down, having taken a knock to his face; when he realises no-one is looking at him, he gets to his feet and plays on.
25' Zigic is off the field, having his arm taped up; he might have dislocated his shoulder; he looks in a lot of pain.
24' Zigic is down, holding his arm after falling awkwardly.
23' The Ivory Coast look a forceful side going forward, but terrible at the back - especially without the influential Kolo Toure, who has been rested for this game.
22' OOH! Zigic flicks a header wide of the far post after being picked out by Stankovic's cross.
21' That was a bad error from Domoraud; he should have cleared the ball first-time, but tried to control it and Ilic nipped in to score.
20' GOAL! Ilic benefits from an awful error in the penalty area by Domoraud, who's poor control leaves the striker with a simple tap-in.
19' UNBELIEVABLE! Kone does wonderfully to get to the by-line; he cuts a pass back to Dindane, but his effort is weak and easily saved; the ball drops to Keita, but he shanks over from six yards!
18' Boka sends the free-kick in to the middle, but Gavrancic clears.
17' Dindane is held up by Nadj as the winger tried to round him on the outside. The substitute is booked for the challenge, just a couple of minutes after coming on.
16' S&M SUB: Krstajic is replaced by Nadj.
15' Krstajic is down after an awkward clash; he looks to be in some pain, and is immediately stretchered off the field.
14' Ivory Coast are knocking the ball around with confidence, and getting plenty players forward; they don't look too disheartened.
12' It will be interesting to see how the Ivory Coast react; they have little to lose, and so hopefully will throw caution to the wind in search of an equaliser.
11' The pass from Stankovic was superb, the control excellent, but Barry and Kouassi didn't do very well to allow the giant striker to round them so easily.
11' GOAL! Zigic controls a long ball through the middle, rounds the goalkeeper and slots in to an empty net.
11' Both coaches will leave their posts after this match, so both countries will be wanting to go out on a high.
10' The slick surface is somewhat unusual in this tournament; for most of the games, the long grass has created a slow pitch, difficult for swift passing moves.
9' Djordevic gives the ball away to Kone in midfield; he runs at the two remaining defenders, but delays his shot too long and his effort is blocked.
8' Serbia have made a slow start to the match; Ivory Coast are snapping around and not giving them any time to measure their passes.
7' Of course, this is a meaningless match in that neither side can progress beyond the group stage - Argentina and Holland made sure of that in the first two matches.
7' This will be Serbia and Montenegro's final ever match - the two countries have recently voted to split in to independent states, and so will compete with under different football associations.
6' Ivory Coast win another free-kick, out on the left wing. The ball is layed square for Toure, but it runs too far for him to attempt a shot.
5' ...but Dudic heads clear at the near post.
5' Ivory Coast win the first corner of the match when Dudic puts behind a cross. Ankale sends the corner in to the penalty area...
4' GREAT RUN! Dindane goes on a weaving run at the heart of the Serbian defence; he gets in to the area, but his pull-back is cleared.
4' The teeming rain has created a very slick playing surface; the goalkeepers are going to have trouble with balls bouncing in front of them.
3' Ivory Coast win a free;kick; Boka strikes a shot from distance, but it is blocked on the edge of the penalty area.
3' It is absolutely pouring down with rain this evening in Munich; the players are already soaking wet, and we've barely started.
2' Six changes for the Ivory Coast, with Kolo Toure and Didier Drogba both missing.
1' Serbia are playing in a beautiful navy blue shirt, while the Ivory Coast are in their startling, bold orange; it is a very colourful occasion.
- SERBIA KICK OFF!
