Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was on fire for Serbia in their electric 3-3 draw with Cameroon, one of the most thrilling World Cup games so far.
The 27-year-old Lazio midfielder played 78 minutes of Serbia’s second game of the tournament in Qatar, making a huge impact from the middle of the pitch. Unfortunately for Milinkovic-Savic and Serbia, his efforts were not enough to pick up the vital three points, leaving his nation at risk of a group stage exit.
Milinkovic-Savic gave Serbia a 2-1 lead just before half time with an accurate shot from outside the box, which crept into the bottom left corner to send his nation’s fans wild.
Early into the second half, Milinkovic-Savic was again the hero during a silky moment of team play from Serbia. The Lazio midfielder was not greedy when given the ball in space just outside the box, laying it off to teammate Andrija Zivkovic, who provided the assist for Aleksandar Mitrović’s 53rd minute strike.
Milinkovic-Savic had a great game in general, completing 35 passes, making 76 touches and playing 11 passes into the final third. He’ll be frustrated that Serbia were unable to pick up the crucial three points, but his performance was stellar regardless.
