Aleksandar Mitrovic scored some crucial goals for Serbia in qualifying for the World Cup in Russia.
And he has continued his excellent goalscoring form by scoring a hat-trick last night for Serbia against Bolivia.
Serbia easily won the game 5-1 and as well as scoring three goals Mitro also had an assist – not a bad day’s work for his country.
Every goal the 23-year-old scores from now on will only add to his transfer fee.
If he has a good World Cup – which now seems likely – heaven knows what the fee will be for the Serbian striker this summer.
Aleksandar Mitrovic – in action for Serbia last night
Serbia’s first World Cup game is against Costa Rica, and that’s a game we will be watching.
There’s a slight chance that Rafa Benitez may want to keep Mitro at Newcastle after his terrific goalscoring form this year at Fulham.
But it looks like the manager has already made up his mind on Mitro and wants a different style of striker to lead the line at Newcastle.
Two promoted clubs – Fulham and Wolves – are both interested in signing the striker, and it seems Mitro would be pleased to stay at Craven Cottage long term.
Here’s the video of the game and Mitro’s goals.
