Serbia coach Mladen Krstajic has expressed joy over his side’s victory against the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the friendly match in London. He believes that it is a deserved victory.
He however expressed disappointment over Serbia’s inability to score more than two goals.
Speaking during his post-match press conference, Krstajic said “I would like to congratulate the players on the win and their excellent performance. Also, on the approach, engagement, responsibility and discipline in the game.
“We controlled the game from the first minute and didn’t give them any chance to play. The win could have been more convincing, but it’s important how we worked.
“The only unfortunate thing is the result against Morocco, but we have proved our critics wrong with our performance in this game. The guys showed character and proved they are ready to play for the national team. We are moving forward, an important job is ahead of us.”
Aleksander Mitroviv scored two goals in the second half to grant the Serbs victory, in their first meeting against Nigeria.
The Super Eagles next friendly will be against DR Congo in Nigeria on May 28 before taking on the Three Lions of England on June 2nd, 2018.
