Aleksandar Mitrović continued his fine scoring run with a brace in Serbia’s 3-1 win over Luxembourg on Tuesday.

The striker headed in the opener before bagging the final goal of the game by rifling high into the net, taking his tally to eight goals in his left seven matches for club and country.

That win moved Serbia to within a point of second placed Portugal in Group B as they target automatic qualification for the European Championship.

Elsewhere, Cyrus Christie was one of only four players to feature for the full 90 minutes of the Republic of Ireland’s 3-1 win over Bulgaria.

Alan Browne, Kevin Long and James Collins were all on target in the friendly encounter in Dublin.

Tim Ream was also in exhibition action as the United States played out a 1-1 draw with Uruguay.

Playing in front of his home town crowd in St Louis, Ream was giving the captaincy for the third time in his USMNT career.

Finally on Tuesday, Fabio Carvalho came on as a substitute as England Under-18s concluded their mini tournament with a 2-0 win over Korea Republic.

On Monday, Steven Sessegnon helped England Under-21s make it two wins from two in Euro qualifying, as the Young Lions defeated Kosovo 2-0 in Hull.

Sessegnon played a key role in Phil Foden’s opener, with the Manchester City man tucking home after Sess’ shot was cleared off the line.
