Serbia humble Nigeria 2-0, Ivory Coast, Morocco win
-Spain destroyed Argentina without Messi 6-1
London, March 27, 2018 (Altafrika)-Sebia national team produced a resolute performance to beat Super Eagles of Nigeria 2-0 at Hive Stadium in London in a 2018 FIFA World Cup warm-up match.
Goals from Aleksandar Mitrović, Fulham striker on loan from Newcastle, in the 68th and 81st minutes ensured Mladen Krstajic’s men flew over the Super Eagles.
Serbia booked their spot in Russia for the first time since 2010 after a remarkable run of form in the qualifying stages.
Elsewhere, Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri emphasised his potential worth at this year’s World Cup with a classy first-half goal to hand the north Africans a 1-0 win over fellow finalists Costa Rica in a friendly played on the French Riviera on Tuesday.
Khazri, 27, might not have set the Premier League alight with Sunderland last season but he sent a clear message about his match-winning ability to England, as well as Belgium and Panama who will share Group G in Russia in June.
He ran onto a ball played over his head from inside his own half, controlled it and swept past a defender before striking it against goalkeeper Keylor Navas and then getting his foot to the rebound first in the 36th minute for the only goal of the game.
The strike by Khazri, on loan at Stade Rennes, earned a second win in five days for Tunisia who beat Iran 1-0 at home on Friday when Costa Rica, who are in Group E with Brazil, Serbia and Switzerland, won by the same score away to Scotland.
With a difficult group ahead in Russia, Morocco are looking to build some momentum after their win over Serbia but did not disappoint today with emphatic 2-0 win over Uzbekistan
Goals from Ayoub kaabi and Manuel da costa in the 3rd and 42nd minutes respectively ensured comfortable victory over an Uzbekistan side without a victory in five games and who missed out on a qualifying play-off space to Syria.
Goals from Assale, 20 minutes and Pepe 44 minutes secured victory for Ivory Coast over Maldova who pulled one back through Lonita in 50 minutes
