Five-goal Serbia make no mistake

Serbia 5-1 FYROM
A quick-fire double from substitute Miloš Jojić helped Serbia to an emphatic victory and a place in the play-offs as qualifying Group 4 winners.

Serbia secured a berth in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-offs in style with a comprehensive defeat of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Defeat for Aleksandar Janković's men could have left top spot in Group 4 open to second-placed Denmark, but the outcome was never in any doubt once Ognjen Mudrinski opened the scoring in the tenth minute.

Luka Milunović doubled the lead before half-time and a quick double from substitute Miloš Jojić made it 4-0 by the 70-minute mark. Samir Fazli pulled a goal back for the hosts before Filip Malbašić then added a fifth goal for Serbia,

A disappointing night for FYROM was completed in the fifth minute of added time when David Babunski was shown his second yellow card.
