Dušan Tadić marked his 50th cap for Serbia with a goal, in his country’s 2-1 friendly defeat to Morocco, in Turin.

Tadić converted with a smart, right-footed finish into the bottom corner in the 37th minute, after Adam Ljajić’s clever through-pass had picked out his run in behind.

That had levelled things up for Serbia, who trailed to a Hakim Ziyech penalty in the 29th minute.

Parity was short-lived, however, as Khalid Boutaïb restored Morocco’s advantage five minutes before the interval, with that strike proving to be enough to separate the sides in Italy.

Tadić’s Saints teammate Boufal was part of the Morocco squad for the game, but did not see any action, finishing as an unused substitute.

He will hope to see some action next Tuesday, when Morocco continue their World Cup preparations with a home friendly against Uzbekistan, in Casablanca.

That same night, Tadić and Serbia head to London for the latest part of their build-up to this summer’s finals in Russia, as they face Nigeria in a friendly at Barnet’s Hive Stadium.
