[Goals Highlight] Mitrovic Scores Twice As Serbia Beat Nigeria 2-0 (Watch) - 3 years ago
Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice as Serbia defeated Nigeria 2-0 in an international friendly played in London on Tuesday night. It was the Super Eagles’ second friendly in four days, following their 1-0 victory over Poland last Friday. The first half ended goalless. Serbia should have gone into the break 1-0 up, but Mitrovic’s finish, which clearly crossed the line, was not awarded by the linesman. Francis Uzoho then produced a fine save as the half came to a close. Nigeria’s best chance came from Victor Moses, whose shot was parried away by Vladimir Stojkovic. Mitrovic was not to be denied again in the second half, as he swept home a cross in the 68th minute to give Serbia the lead. The striker, who is currently on loan at Fulham from Newcastle, produced a similar finish with 10 minutes left, to make it 2-0.
