Poor Mitrovic still has nightmares about it. Exiled in tip like Napoleon at; Saint-Hélégrave;ne, the Fulham striker has finished the encounter with zero shots. Better, Serbia has not even been damn to frame the slightest shot at Lusail Stadium. Something to make Thiago Silva smile in the mixed zone.
