A second half brace from Mitrovic condemned the Super Eagles of Nigeria to a 2-0 defeat against Serbia in an Intl friendly at the Hive Stadium on Tuesday night in London.
Genort Rohr made four changes to the side that defeated Poland in Wroclaw as Chidozie Awaziem replaced Leon Balogun in defence, Tyronne Ebuehi for Shehu Abdulahi with Ogenyi Onazi and Ahmed Musa coming in.
Serbia started the brightest and had a goal disallowed earlier in the first half with the team having the best of chances going forward with only a glimpse of half chances for Nigeria with Ahmed Musa in the false nine position.
The first half ended goalless with nothing to separate both sides.
Odion Ighalo couldn’t connect with Ebuehi’s cross as Nigeria started the second half with more intensity but it didn’t take too long for Mitrovic to break the deadlock as he met Kostic’s cross to volley in from close range after the Nigeria defence gets caught open on the right side.
Nigeria couldn’t find an instant reply as a great hold up play by Tadic, finds Kostic who drives in and cuts back for Mitrivic to drive in his second of the game and gets his brace.
The loss is the second for Nigeria under Genort Rohr
