Really good news for Newcastle fans as Aleksandar Mitrovic had an excellent game for Serbia last night and he scored two goals in their 3-2 home win over Austria.
Mitro has been a little bit off-form so far this season and especially when recently playing for his country when he came in for some extreme criticism in the last International break when Serbia played Ireland.
Aleksandar Mitrovic last night – had a good game
So his very good display last night will give him a real lift in his confidence and his two goals won Serbia the game last night.
After the game Mitro had this to say to then press:
“These goals are essential to me. I have not played much at Newcastle.”
“This is only the second game I have started in a month.”
“The manager Rafa Benitez sent me a message after the game and congratulated me.”
“There is time now before the next match against Wales.” “I know their style of play and how to play in that game.”
Rafa really is a class act and his man-management seems to be excellent.
Here’s some of the highlights from last night’s game with Mitro’s two goals.
And if you want to go straight to them – he scores after 20 seconds with a tap-on and after 3 mins and 30 seconds with a nice header.
It will be interesting to see if Rafa starts him on Saturday, but we don’t think he will since he may not be fresh.
Rafa will probably keep Dwight Gayle starting that game – just a hunch.
What do you think?
