Serbian midfielder Dusan Tadic says Nigeria will pose a tough test for his side in tonight’s international friendly at the Hive Stadium in London.

Serbia will face African opposition for the second time in the space of four days when they come up against the Super Eagles in the English capital, having lost 2-1 to Morocco in Turin pn Friday.

The Southampton midfielder believes Nigeria will pose a tough physical test and had identified their Premier League players, such as Victor Moses, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi, as the key danger men.

“Morocco and Nigeria are good teams, they qualified for the World Cup due to their quality,'' Tadic told the official website of the Serbian Federation.

“Nigeria has a lot of good players, we expect a very big game, physically very demanding. So, we must prepare well and make everything look better than against Morocco.

“Several players of Nigeria also appear in the Premier League.

“They have players in Leicester, Chelsea. They are physically dominant, fast, strong and will be a good opponent. It is for us to achieve a positive result.”

Nigeria will be looking for a second straight victory over a fellow 2018 World Cup qualifier, having beaten Poland 1-0 in Wroclaw this past weekend.
