Aleksandar Mitrovic scores against China – Video – Watch it here
Alekasandar Mitrovic is making headlines again.
Last weekend it was Rafa Benitez once again overlooking the striker, Mitro staying on the bench as United lost to Bournemouth.
That made it still no Premier League starts this season and only 30 minutes on the pitch in two brief sub appearances, though he did score against West Ham when coming off the bench.
The former Anderlecht forward having started only one club game this season, the League Cup game against Forest when he scored a decent goal.
Friday lunchtime (UK time) he is once again amongst the goals, Aleksandar Mitrovic playing for Serbia away in China and putting his side two up (watch it below).
Llajic had given Serbia a first half lead and then Mitro swooped on 69 minutes to wrap the win up, the match finishing 2-0 to the visitors.
A decent little bit of movement getting them behind the defender and giving the keeper no chance with the header.
Serbia and Aleksandar Mitrovic now move on to South Korea, who they face on Tuesday in their next friendly.
The goal against China is the striker’s ninth in the last 11 games for his country, including the six he scored to help them qualify for next year’s World Cup finals in Russia.
Enjoy the goal.
