World Cup 2010, Australia Vs. Serbia: Teams Facing Elimination After Scoreless First Half

Both Serbia, third place in Group D, and Australia, fourth, are 45 minutes from elimination after a 0-0 first half.

Serbia looked the more dangerous side and nearly got goals from Nicola Zigic and Milos Krasic, but unable to break through the Socceroos defense, the Serbs are set to finish on four points, if results hold.

That would put Serbia out on tiebreaker to Germany, also set to finish on four points but with a better goal difference.

Australia needs a win, sitting on one point after two matches, but has only been able to generate one shot on goal in the half, holding 37 percent of the possession.
