Mladen Krstajic, head coach of Serbia national team says his side deserved the 2-0 win against the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday night in London.
Fulham striker Aleksander Mitrovic’s brace arrived in the 69th and 83rd minutes respectively as the Serbians ran rings round the opposition with their high pressing and passing game.
Krstajic reckons the goal margin should have been bigger considereing their dominance of the game.
“I would like to congratulate the players on the win and their excellent performance,” Krstajic said during his post match press conference.
“Also, on the approach, engagement, responsibility and discipline in the game.
a�?We controlled the game from the first minute and didna��t give them any chance to play.
“The win could have been more convincing, but ita��s important how we worked.
a�?The only unfortunate thing is the result against Morocco, but we have proved our critics wrong with our performance in this game.
a�?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.a�?
