Wilkshire's pulled up holding his groin and makes way for Richard Garcia. He actually did it in the build up to that cross a minute ago, but still got the cross in. Fair dinkum.
Kuzmanovic, like most of his team-mates impressive in the first half and not in the second, makes way for Danko Lazovic.
GOAL - HOLMAN! What a goal! One of the goals of the tournament from Holman. He picks the ball up in midfield and is placed under no pressure by the defence. He runs unchallenged before rifling home from 30 yards. An unstoppable drive into the bottom corner.
GOAL - CAHILL! Australia take the lead, and Serbia do pay the price for their first-half profligacy. It's a wonderful header from Cahill, finding the bottom corner from Wilkshire's pinpoint cross from the right. It's now Germany, Ghana, Australia, Serbia in this tight, tight group.
Marko Pantelic replaces Zigic for Serbia.
A bad first touch from Emerton puts him in trouble, and he responds with a two-footed challenge on Ninkovic and might be a fraction fortunate to escape with only a booking. He got a slither of the ball: without that, it was a certain straight red.
Double change from Australia: Bresciano and Valeri make way for Brett Holman and Scott Chipperfield.
Schwarzer comes through a crowd of players to punch clear from the free-kick.
Easy decision for the ref as Wilkshire responds to being nutmegged by Ninkovic by chopping the Serbian down. Nasty tackle.
Serbia's impressive first-half performance sees them drift only to evens from 4/5 to win with Sky Bet despite so far failing to make the breakthrough. The draw is 11/8 and Australia 9/2. Serbia are 4/1 to win by more than one goal.
The half-time whistle blows. Serbia have spent most of the half on the front foot and have played some cracking football. But Schwarzer has been solid when called upon and Serbia have just lacked that cutting edge in the final third for all that they impress with their passing and movement. Australia have attacked infrequently, but look dangerous when they do with Kennedy a willing target man and Cahill buzzing around menacingly.
Aleksandr Lukovic goes into the book for a clumsy challenge on Wilkshire. Promising free-kick for Australia out on the right.
Liam Ferguson: "I can see Serbia winning this game against Australia and hopefully Ghana can get a win or draw against Germany, which they are more than capable of doing, so it will be an interesting night for everyone involved." The last part of that is definitely right, Liam.
Serbia have been popular all day, according to our pals at Sky Bet, and are solid favourites at 4/5 to pick up the win that takes them through to the last 16. It's 7/2 for the Aussies to win and give themselves a chance, while the draw's 5/2. Tim Cahill, back from suspension, is 9/1 to open the scoring.
Josh from Birmingham (the Alabama one, not the midlands one) writes: "As a USA fan I am hoping for an outcome that pairs us with either Ghana or Serbia rather than Germany. Despite a few main players being out for the Germans I see them nicking this one 2-1 while Serbia whip the Aussies 3-0."
