Aleksandar Mitrovic had an excellent game for Serbia last night when he scored after 5 minutes with a header.
That was after another header from him had been brilliantly saved by Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
Aleksandar headed the ball home from a cross, and he looked dominant in the ait last night and was again Serbia’s danger man.
Switzerland came back into the game in the second half and after 52 minutes, a blockbuster shot from Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka leveled the scores.
23-year-old Aleksandar Mitrovic – sterling game for Serbia
After 90 minutes Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri scored the winner at the death when he broke free from the halfway line to score.
But Mitro should have had a penalty in the second half when a Swiss defender had his arms wrapped around him from a corner as he pulled the Newcastle striker to the ground.
If that’s not a penalty, then we don’t know what is.
It was a sterling performance from 23-year-old Serbian and it’s small wonder he is still popular on Tyneside.
Mitro gives everything when he plays, and he worked his socks off last night making some good defensive headers too.
But Rafa Benitez is still unlikely to change his mind about keeping him at Newcastle but he seems to be worth a chance next season.
But we just don’t think he now fits in on Tyneside, given the system Rafa is using at Newcastle.
Mitro led the line for Serbia last night in great style – there’s no doubt about that.
It would appear he’s worth at least £20M to any club given the inflated transfer fees of today.
