6:42 am on 12 October 2009

Serbia's captain says they've given themselves a big pair of boots to fill in the World Cup after qualifying with an impressive 5-0 hammering of Romania.

Dejan Stankovic says expectations will be high although the Romanians did not deserve such a heavy defeat.

It's the first big football tournament Serbia has reached as an independent nation after the breakup of Yugoslavia.
