Nottingham Forest fans surprised Stojkovic is Serbia’s first-choice goalkeeper at World Cup

The World Cup gives fans of all clubs the chance to watch their current or former players in action for their respective countries.

For Nottingham Forest’s following, many were surprised to see the club’s former goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic in the first XI.

The shot-stopper played in Serbia’s 1-0 win over Costa Rica in their opening Group E match on Sunday.

The 34-year-old spent just one season at the City Ground before joining Partizan Belgrade last year.

During his time at Forest, the keeper made just 21 appearances, and he failed to impress in between the sticks, hence his swift departure.

On Sunday, Stojkovic did a decent job for his nation as he managed to keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory for Serbia.

On Twitter, Forest fans could not help but poke fun at the keeper’s ill-fated stint at the club, and many were left surprised that he was even playing at the World Cup.

As well as Forest, Stojkovic had a short loan spell at Wigan Athletic in 2010.
