Newcastle United’s Aleksandar Mitrovic found the net against France tonight.

The striker scored in Serbia’s 2-1 friendly defeat in Bordeaux.

Mitrovic, banned for Newcastle’s next three games for his dismissal against Arsenal, netted in the 40th minute with his team trailing by two goals.

But the 20-year-old’s strike had an element of fortune, with the ball having bounced off him and into the net.

It was Mitrovic’s second senior goal for Serbia.

Mitrovic, signed from Anderlectht this summer, is yet to open his United account.

Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko came off the bench late in the game.
