Serbia forward Aleksandar Mitrovic is thrilled to have bagged a brace in Tuesday’s friendly win against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Hive Stadium, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
Mitrovic, who was unlucky not to have a goal to his name in the first half after Nigeria goalkeeper Francis Uzoho clawed back his header which had already crossed the line in the first half, netted twice after the break to give his team the win.
It was a dominant display from the Serbians who put behind them last Friday’s 2-1 loss to Morocco.
“Two goals, I scored another which was not counted but it’s the team that is more important,” the striker who plays for English Championship club Fulham stated after the game.
“It was a good match and good result for us. We played well and won which is the important thing for us. We did everything the coach asked us to do. We dominated the game and had total control.
” We were the better team and we deserved to win the game. Now, we go back to our clubs and we are all eager to re-assemble again because we know what is expected in Russia.”
