Fulham will hope Aleksandar Mitrovic’s international exploits continue at club level

When Serbia defeated Montenegro 2-o in the UEFA Nations League on Thursday night, there was truly only one name that could be on the scoresheet: Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Fulham striker has been on superb form all season long for both club and country, and his brace in Podgorica brought his tally to four in his opening three Nations League matches.

His two goals yet again exemplified his dual threat: calm under pressure from the spot, as well as blessed with tremendous movement and the ability to get on the end of crosses into the box.

The centre-forward has lit up the Premier League and currently sits second on the league scoring charts behind only Eden Hazard. Yet Mitrovic has been stymied in the last two matches against Everton and Arsenal, with his scoring chances severely limited as the Whites suffered consecutive heavy losses.

A massive match beckons between Fulham and Cardiff after the international break, and Fulham fans will be hoping Aleksandar Mitrovic can carry his brilliant Serbia form back into the Premier League.
