Aleksandar Mitrovic of Fulham, scored for Serbia as they defeated Norway to secure promotion to the Nations League’s top tier.
Mitrovic scored his 50th goal for Serbia, and sixth in his last four games, from 16 yards out with the game on the line.
It was his 14th Nations League goal, and it doubled Serbia’s lead after Dusan Vlahovic’s strike for Juventus.
Serbia has achieved promotion to the top tier of the Nations Leagues after beginning in League C.
Norway would have promoted with a point in Oslo.
Mitrovic’s 14 goals in the Nations League are a record, and he is also the tournament’s leading scorer this year. In his last four away games, he has scored four goals.
He has now scored 12 goals in his last 11 club and country appearances, and 58 in 65 games since the start of last season.
Erling Haaland of Manchester City played the full 90 minutes for Norway and had four shots, but failed to score for the tenth time in 23 international appearances.
Sweden was demoted to League C after a 1-1 draw with Slovenia in the other Group B4 game.
Serbia 4 – 1 Sweden
On 24th of September, Serbia in their quest for qualification, defeated another Nordic nation in Sweden, and yet again it was Aleksandar Mitrovic delivering the blows!
Serbia defeated Sweden 4-1 in Belgrade in the Nations League 5 days ago, with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring a hat-trick.
Serbia’s first three goals were scored by Mitrovic, before Sasa Lukic added a fourth midway through the second half.
Mitrovic has now scored 49 goals in 75 appearances for his country, bringing his season total to nine goals in eight games across all competitions.
Viktor Claesson gave Sweden the lead after 15 minutes, but it was short-lived as Mitrovic scored three minutes later.
The home side took control with a header on the stroke of half-time, and when the striker scored his third three minutes after the break, the victory was all but sealed, with Torino midfielder Lukic adding a fourth for good measure.
Then of course, Serbia went on to defeat Norway to achieve promotion.
Serbia, the nemesis for Scandinavian nations!
