Dušan Tadić will head back from international duty full of confidence after his time with Serbia in World Cup qualifying.
The playmaker has been directly involved in his country’s last 10 goals, scoring four and setting up six.
He laid on two goals for Newcastle’s Aleksandar Mitrović, before netting himself in a 3-2 win against Austria on Sunday night.
That followed two assists and a goal in the 3-0 success away to Moldova last Thursday night and his scintillating form has been a hot topic on the international stage.
Ahead of the international break, Tadić’s first goal of the season at West Ham United was voted goal of the month after his clever run saw him skillfully round Adrian.
An integral part of the Saints side, he has also created 22 chances for his teammates so far in the Premier League, the third highest number for an individual in the top-flight, behind only Willian (23) and Jason Puncheon (24).
Such success has continued from last season, when he became only the fourth player to register three assists in a single game on more than one occasion in the Premier League alongside Eyal Berkovic, Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas.
