Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored 14 goals in his last 19 appearances for Serbia.
Scoring a hat-trick in the final World Cup warm up game against Bolivia was a confidence booster but in the opening group win over Costa Rica, the Newcastle striker failed to convert two very good chances.
Mitro’s overall play was very good though and at 7pm (UK time) tonight he gets another chance, as Serbia take on Switzerland.
The Swiss got a draw against Brazil in their opening match and earlier today, it looked as though Costa Rica would do the same, only for Brazil to score twice in added on time.
However, a win for Serbia tonight would mean they are through to the knockout stages.
Aleksandar Mitrovic 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 22/5 to score the first goal tonight, so good luck and here’s hoping Serbia make sure of getting through the group stage.
