Milivojevic Plays Full 90 In Serbia Win

28 March 2018

Luka Milivojevic's Serbia continued their preparations for this summer's World Cup by beating Nigeria 2-0 at Barnet's Hive Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Palace man played the entire game which was settled by Aleksandar Mitrovic's second half brace, helping Serbia bounce back from Friday's 2-1 defeat to Morocco in Turin when Luka played 45 minutes.

He doubled that tally after making the short trip to north London on what was his 26th appearance for his country, lining up alongside Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic in a holding midfield role.

Serbia will face Costa Rica, Switzerland and Brazil in Group E when the World Cup kick-off in Russia in June.

Meanwhile, Pape Souare was an unused substitute as Senegal also warmed up for the tournament with a goalless draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina in France.
