City's Aleksandar Kolarov has been credited with inspiring his Serbia side to an impressive 6-1 win over Wales.

As reported yesterday in our media round-up, Kolarov had threatened that his team could cause some damage at the Karadjordje Stadium in Novi Sad, and that they did.

“Kolarov fired the home side ahead when he curled a delightful free kick from 18 metres over the wall past the despairing dive of Wales keeper Glyn Myhill in the 16th minute," reports Reuters.

"The Manchester City player turned provider eight minutes later after muscling his way past two defenders to the touchline and squaring the ball for Serbia captain Zoran Tosic to steer it home from close range.”

Bosnia were also on somewhat of a scoring spree last night with Blues striker Edin Džeko again getting his name on the score sheet, making it four in two games for the 26-year-old.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mail claims Roberto Mancini is very close to signing Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic.

“Liverpool and Chelsea have also shown an interest in the 22-year-old Montenegro international,” writes the paper’s Jeremy Cross.

“But the Blues are on the verge of agreeing a pre-contract agreement for Jovetic, according to reports in Italy.

“Since joining Fiorentina from Partizan in 2008, Jovetic has scored 28 goals in 89 appearances and has 10 goals in just 21 outings for Montenegro.”

Finally, it's being suggested that young City striker Harry Bunn could be out for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old, who is currently on loan at Crewe Alexandra, is back at the club receiving treatment after sustaining severe knee ligament t damage during Alex’s 0-0 draw against Tranmere.

“He will possibly need a couple of operations and it will be a long rehabilitation process for him,” Crewe boss Steve Davis told the BBC.

"I wouldn't want to put a timescale on it but he is a young lad and will come back."

Of course we will keep you up to date with Harry’s situation when we have official news.
