Serbia: 16.06.06, G(elsenkirchen), G(ermany)–>0:6

Viktor of Belgrade Blog posts pictures of Serbian fans watching the game against Argentina and writes that they “should have read the signs” to prepare themselves for the disastrous defeat: “But it all started so nicely… we first we beat such quality names in qualifications as Bosnia and Herzegovina, then the country splits but we still go under the same name of Serbia and Montenegro, i think without any Montenegrins in the team, listening to national anthem of a country called Socialistic Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, under the flag of Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia, when we really are Serbia. Makes you wonder though – if we manage to get to the World Cup under so strange circumstances, do we really have to go OUT of the World Cup with a bang? Maybe it was unavoidable. But then again – it was 16.06.06, Gelsenkirchen, Germany – we should have read the signs really.”
