• Played all three games for Serbia & Montenegro at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, the latter purely under the guise of Serbia.

• A fundamental player in Inter's five successive Scudetto wins from 2005/06 onwards; reached 100 appearances in UEFA club competition in a 2-0 defeat at FC Barcelona on Matchday 5 of the 2009/10 UEFA Champions League.

• Came on as a second-half substitute during the Nerazzurri's UEFA Champions League final victory later that season against FC Bayern München as Inter completed an historic treble.

• Scored one of the best goals in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League when he volleyed in from near the halfway line after 25 seconds against FC Schalke 04.

• Made his 100th international appearance in a 3-1 defeat of the Faroe Islands, a UEFA European Championship qualifier on 6 September 2011. "This moment is one I'll never forget," said Stanković after receiving a commemorative cap and medal from UEFA for reaching the appearance milestone. "I remember very well each of those 100 games, they made me richer."
