Nigeria vs Serbia: Mitrovic scores twice as Super Eagles lose



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.
