Vidic: I made Stojkovic a hero

Fear ran through the veins of Nemanja Vidic. Serbia's pre-eminent icon was on the verge of being cast a villain. The 28-year-old had, with his country a goal up in a match they had to win to stand a realistic chance of reaching the Round of 16, conceded a 60th-minute spot-kick. Living in England, the Manchester United centre-back knew all too well that Germans rarely miss penalties.

The story is too old to be commented.

Another handsball on the next match would make it a hattrick. Just like they did when they were Yugoslavia on Euro 2000, it was red card hattrick though.

Strange thing to say! Vidic should be shamed by his stupid stunt.

Really? You've screwed it up, if he wouldn't have saved that penalty you wouldn't be saying that now
