Serbia secured qualification to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in dramatic fashion as Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic scored a late goal to book the Balkan nation’s ticket to Qatar.

The Championship star, who has been one of the most in-form players in England this season, popped up in the final minutes of Serbia’s clash against Portugal to steal top spot in Group A with one of the last chances of the qualifying stage.

Mitrovic is Serbia’s all-time top goalscorer, and the Fulham star could well break the scoring record in a single season in the Championship. With the former Newcastle attacker already on 20 goals in 17 games.

Yet no goal of Mitrovic’s will be as valuable as the one he scored for Serbia last night. With the eastern European nation now on their way to Qatar next year for the World Cup.

Indeed, Mitrovic has written his way into Serbian football history in more ways than one. Yet the striker’s goal last night will be one of the biggest the forward ever scores for his nation.

With the striker scoring eight goals in qualifying, Mitrovic has been key to Serbia booking their ticket for the 2022 World Cup. And Fulham supporters on social media are buzzing.
