Serbia has closed the second tier of Nations League after a win at its home by scoring a 2-1 win over their neighbors Montenegro. They are in on promotion and currently at the top of group four in C League. The Serbian team who won the goals in the first half of the game from Aleksandar Mitrovic and Adem as Ljajic have total 11 points which they achieved by playing 5 games, their points are 4 more than the team of Montenegro who cannot clinch the first stop now.
If Romania will fail in defeating the visiting team of Lithuania in the kick of 1945 GMT, then Serbia will automatically get promoted to the top spot. Romania has 6 points after playing 4 games. Mitrovic and Ljajic, who also failed to hit on a penalty, managed to put their team in the driving seat but after this when Stefan Mugosa pulled 1 back in the 70th minute, both of them were forced to hang on.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will reportedly name one of David de Gea or Nemanja Matic as the next captain once Michael Carrick hangs up his boots at the end of the season. The former England international has sparingly been used over the course of the campaign and he has recently announced that he would be retiring from the game in order to step into coaching with the Old Trafford outfit.
According to The Mirror, Mourinho has made up a two-man shortlist to replace Carrick as the next captain and this does not include Antonio Valencia. The Ecuador international has been the Red Devils’ skipper this season whenever Carrick has been absent but there are supposedly concerns over the right-back’s age which may restrict his participation for the club in the future.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has hailed the impact of Scott McTominay, who has become a regular under Jose Mourinho in a short period of time. The 21-year-old had impressed the manager during the club’s pre-season tour of the United States, and this saw him integrated into the first-team squad after making just two league appearances last term.
Since then, McTominay has been picked regularly in the match day squads, and he has found himself a regular over the past month amid the fitness concerns of Paul Pogba. The Anglo-Scot has come up with several promising performances during his period, but the best of the lot was against Liverpool, where he managed to command the midfield alongside Serbia international Matic.

Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling has praised the consistent showing of Nemanja Matic since his move from Chelsea earlier in the summer. The Serbia international has been hailed for his ability to shield the backline while gaining a firm control at the heart of the midfield. Speaking on the United Review, Smalling said: “He can do everything. You want to give him the ball because he’s able to find the attacking players very quickly, but he’s also able to break things up and we couldn’t ask for anyone better in the middle.
“The fact he’s got good experience of the Premier League and Champions League is great for us and we were always confident it wouldn’t take him too long to settle in. But I think he’s definitely surpassed that because he’s been one of our main players and has been fit for every game which has been brilliant.”

Luka Milivojevic is confident that Crystal Palace can help his World Cup dreams, particularly with the ongoing revolution at the Premier League side. With Roy Hodgson in charge, Palace are launching a serious bid to retain their top flight status. The midfielder skippered the side to victory over the weekend where they defeated Burnley.
The result ensured Palace are five points above the danger zone where they had spent most of the first half of the season. Palace had one of the worst starts by any side in the league and it seemed certain that Milivojevic’s World Cup dream would go away.
