It was a World Cup qualification campaign to remember for Aleksandar Mitrovic and Serbia who topped Group A to seal their spot in the finals.

The automatic qualification battle went down to the wire when the top two teams, Serbia and Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal, clashed in their final game.

And it was the Fulham striker who came out on top, scoring a dramatic late winner to book Serbia's plane ticket to Qatar and condemn Portugal to the play-offs.

Mitrovic would also outgun the mighty Ronaldo in the qualification scoring stakes, notching eight times to the Manchester United veteran's six.

Serbia would finish unbeaten in the group stage, three points ahead of the Portuguese. In Qatar, they have been drawn in Group G alongside Brazil, Switzerland and Cameroon.
