read One Piece 922 on line - Kaidou is a dragon. A very impactful appearance. I thought he didn't have an ability due to his inability to get himself killed, but I guess suicide is only worth it for him if it's done by testing the limits of his own endurance. That makes sense when I think about how he tried to become Pirate King. He is not entirely uninterested in his life; he's probably like a berserk warrior bored by how weak and peaceful everyone else is, so he is always trying to test the limits of his power against extreme odds and strong enemies. He reminds me of Thorkell The Tall in Vinland Saga! Kaidou is a lot more extreme, though. His endplan is probably to attack the government in another summit war, but this time in the attacking side. Crazy. I'm not sure if he is even stronger in Dragon form, but this is likely to be so. In any case, having the ability to fly and possibly breath fire would make him into and even bigger threat. Kaidou looks so badass. Given that dragon pokemons are probably the strongest type, I wonder if that's part of why Kaidou's considered the strongest creature. Kinemon seems to have come up with an okay plan, but I can't see that working when they fight Kaidou without miracles, given his power. And on top of that is Jack, who's a beast in his own right as well. Wonder what Zoro's fate is going to be, I can see him somehow both messing the plan up and being the saving grace as result of that.

Kolarov scored a spectacular free-kick to give Serbia a deserved victory

Serbia captain Kolarov - the former Manchester City defender - scored from 25 yards when he curled the ball over the Costa Rica wall.

Kolarov's effort had sufficient bend to find the top corner with Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas clutching at thin air as he desperately scrambled across goal.

Costa Rica only sporadically threatened the Serbia goal, with an early header over the crossbar from unmarked defender Giancarlo Gonzalez their best effort.

With games against Brazil and Switzerland to come, this was a key match for both nations to press their credentials to reach the knockout stages.

Mladen Krstajic's Serbia side - the lowest ranked European nation at Russia 2018 - now appear the best placed of the two to progress after a dominant second-half display.

The margin of victory would have been greater had Navas not narrowed the angle to deny Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic after he had been sent clear by the impressive Sergej Milinkovic-Savic earlier in the game.

Serbia's Nemanja Matic, meanwhile, was involved in an ugly confrontation with a member of the Costa Rica coaching staff in injury time as the Manchester United midfielder tried to retrieve the ball after it went out of play.


Before this encounter Serbia had managed one victory in their last six World Cup tournament matches, and lost both of their opening World Cup group games as an independent nation following the break up of Yugoslavia.

Optimism in the Balkan state heading into this tournament was not particularly high.

Indeed the country's football association cancelled an open-top bus parade in Belgrade as part of a send-off to the tournament because they predicted such a lukewarm reaction.

After a cautious start in this match there are some encouraging signs that Krstajic's blend of a gnarled experienced defence combined with a youthful technically-gifted midfield could make an impression.

"There are no clans or cliques in this squad for the first time in a long time," Krstajic said. "The basics of success are a good atmosphere in a team."

The creative talents of Milinkovic-Savic were particularly eye-catching and there is the sense that he must follow this impressive showing against stronger opposition.

A sterner test of Serbia's capabilities will come in their remaining Group E games with Brazil and Switzerland but after a low-key build-up, this was an encouraging display.
