Serbia head coach, Mladen Krstajic, has said his team fully deserved to defeat Nigeria in an international friendly on Tuesday in London.

Aleksandar Mitrovic scored two second-half goals, as Serbia won 2-0 at the Hive Stadium.

Krstajic said the goal margin should have been bigger considering their dominance of the game.

“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,” he told reporters after the game.

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 2, 2018.
