Serbia Coach Reacts To Victory Over Super Eagles
Serbia head coach Mladen Krstajic has given his thoughts on the 2-0 win recorded by his team over Nigeria 2-0 in their friendly match played on Tuesday in London.
Krstajic’s men dominated the game with Aleksander Mitroviv hitting a brace after the break and the gaffer reckons that the Super Eagles were ‘lucky’ to have just been beaten by a two-goal margin.
"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," Krstajic stated during his post-match press conference.
"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."
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.
