It was disappointment for Aleksandar Mitrovic on Monday night, as Serbia lost 1-0 to Chile in their World Cup warm up match.

Guillermo Maripan scoring with two minutes to go, as Serbia failed to deal with a corner.

By that point the Newcastle striker had departed, replaced in the 84th minute.

In a game of few chances, Mitrovic looked to have won his side a penalty after going down under a challenge from Erick Pulgar, only for the referee to wave away his claims.

As for Martin Dubravka, after impressing in last week’s 1-1 draw with Holland, the Newcastle goalkeeper watched from the bench as Slovakia lost 2-1 to World Cup-bound Morocco. Dubravka and his international teammates have now completed their international duties and he can now go off and relax, before preparing for league football next season.

Aleksandar Mitrovic was named at the weekend in Serbia’s final 23 man squad for the World Cup and they now move on to their final friendly before Russia, playing Bolivia on Saturday 9 June.

They are in World Cup Group E and play Costa Rica on 17 June, Switzerland on 22 June, Brazil onΒ  27 June.

    Lascelles, Lejeune & even Saivet mentioned in the media in respect of moves yet nothing on Mitro.
    they need to get him out the door along with Sels and Mbemba, Colback,
    because until they are gone there will be no incomings

    • Wor Lass

      It`s ironic, isn`t it. He`s not wanted here but they`ll be waiting and hoping he has a good world cup so his price rises. Risky strategy but typical of Fatso.

      • MichaelMaximusMoose

        He could pick up an injury & scupper the whole deal

        • Wor Lass

          Or have a mare!

          • MichaelMaximusMoose

            He`s useless, i`m thinking of sending him to France

          • Wor Lass

            It`ll do him good – somewhere in the North, I reckon.

          • MichaelMaximusMoose
