Aleksandar Mitrovic can create history and become 7th Newcastle United player to score at World Cup finals

2 years ago

Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 14 goals in his last 18 appearances for Serbia.

However, if he makes it 15 (or better) out of 19 on Sunday, it will surely be his most treasured goal(s).

The Newcastle striker is set to line up at 1pm (UK time) for Serbia against Costa Rica.

He is NUFC’s only representative out in Russia and if he scores, he will become only the seventh Newcastle player to ever score at a World Cup finals.

Altogether, there have been eight goals scored in total, by six different players who were on Newcastle’s books at the time.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is 16/5 to score the first goal today (see betting below) and 100/1 to be top scorer in the whole tournament.

Serbia starting 11 today: Stojkovic, Ivanovic, Tosic, Milenkovic, Kolarov, Milinkovic-Savic, Milivojevic, Matic, Ljajic, Tadic, Mitrovic

Would be great to see him get on the scoresheet and Serbia start with a victory, good luck!
