World Cup 2010: Serbia Defender Nemanja Vidic Rues Missed Chances In Ghana Defeat

The Manchester United stopper believes his nation did enough to at least collect a point...
Serbia defender Nemanja Vidic stressed to journalists that he felt his side were left regretting their missed opportunities following their 1-0 defeat to Ghana this afternoon.

A late Asamoah Gyan penalty proved to be the difference between the sides, after Zdravko Kuzmanovic's bizarre handball in the closing stages.

However, Vidic himself had went close to scoring in the second half, and admitted after the match that they did not take advantage of the chances that they created.

He stated, "We had our chances and we failed to utilise them. They had their own, though, and they punished us.

"What is left for us is the next game and we will keep going."

Vidic also added his voice to those who have been critical of the Jabulani, but was quick to add that it is equally difficult for all players in the tournament - not just defenders.

He commented, "People have expressed their opnion [on the ball], but for me I would say that the ball is very difficult for the forwards and the defenders.

"But what can I say is that it was the same for everyone."
