Serbia 0-1 Chile

Mitrovic
Serbia were not awarded a penalty for a challenge on Mitrovic (left) in the second half

Serbia lost to Chile in the first of their 2018 World Cup warm-up matches, conceding a late goal to Guillermo Maripan.

The centre-back headed in from close range two minutes from time to earn a deserved win for Reinaldo Rueda's side.

Former Manchester United and Wigan striker Angelo Henriquez missed an open goal from three yards out.

At the other end Newcastle United's Aleksandar Mitrovic was denied a penalty after Erick Pulgar's challenge.

Chile - who failed to qualify for the 2018 finals - rested stars Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal for the friendly, opting for a younger side.

Serbia chose to leave Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic and Lazio's Sergej Milinkovic-Savic on the bench, instead starting Liverpool's Marko Grujic.

Serbia continue their tournament preparation with a friendly against Bolivia on Saturday before their opening Group E match against Costa Rica on 17 June. Brazil and Switzerland are the other two teams in Group E.
