Stefan Mugosa scored for Montenegro in the 70th minute.

Fulham’s Mitrovic: ‘I’m stupid’

It was a night of mixed fortunes for Fulham striker Mitrovic.

Mitrovic scored a terrific goal for Serbia in the 32nd minute.

Managing to stay onside from a cross from the left hand side, the Fulham attacker volleyed a sweet shot into the near post with his right foot.

Six minutes later, after Man United’s Nemanja Matic went down in the box, Mitrovic was handed the opportunity to score a second.

However the Fulham centre-forward fluffed the spot-kick.

Mitrovic tried to score a panenka penalty. However he screwed his effort up, and the penalty flew over the bar.

After the match Mitrovic gave an honest appraisal of his missed spot-kick:

I have no idea why I’ve done that, I was watching [Memphis] Depay yesterday and decided at last moment. I am stupid!

Even with his failed penalty, Mitrovic is on fire for Serbia.

Mitrovic has scored 11 goals in 11 internationals, including five goals in the UEFA Nations League.
