Aleksandar Mitrovic is in some elite company at the moment.
Whilst he struggles to get a first team start for Newcastle, the striker has been on top form at international level.
Mitrovic scored in Serbia’s latest game, as they beat Moldova 3-0.
This was the forward’s eighth goal in his last eight international appearances.
It was also his sixth in six World Cup qualifiers and with 467 minutes played in Group D games, it has put him in the elite grouping of goalscorers in these qualifying matches.
The Newcastle forward has scored on average every 78 minutes in the group games, with only three strikers in Europe’s qualifying groups for Russia bettering that record.
