Serbia striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic, has said his country’s national team fully deserved the win against Nigeria in Tuesday’s international friendly match played in London.
Mitrovic, who plays for English Championship club, Fulham, scored two second-half goals, as Serbia won 2-0 at the Hive Stadium.
The striker said Serbia deserved the victory against Nigeria because they did everything their coach told them to do.
“Two goals, I scored another which was not counted but it’s the team that is more important,” Mitrovic told reporters 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.”
