Preview Serbia vs England 16.06.2024

Veltins Arena will host the last match of the day from Euro 2024 on Sunday evening at 20:00, where Serbia will face England, a first-ever confrontation between the two national teams since Serbia became an independent nation. In 2003, there was a friendly match between England and Serbia and Montenegro, won by England 2-1. The two national teams are part of group C, which also includes Denmark and Slovenia. The match is expected to be very intense, the Serbians being recognized for their fighting spirit, while England is one of the favorites for Euro 2024, after losing the final to Italy in the previous tournament.

Serbia was part of group G in the preliminaries, where they played against Hungary, Montenegro, Lithuania and Bulgaria. The group was a balanced one with three clear favorites and two teams without hopes of qualification. Serbia took second place after Hungary and obtained direct qualification for Euro 2024. In friendly matches, Serbia played a weak match against Austria, a team qualified for Euro 2024, being defeated 2-1, but also recorded a victory spectacular, 3-0 against Sweden, a national team that missed the qualification for this final tournament hosted by Germany. In this group, Serbia starts with the third chance, after England and Denmark, Slovenia being rated with the 4th chance. In the next match, Serbia will play against Slovenia, a match that could prove decisive for qualifying for the round of 16.

Serbia possible line-up: Vanja Milinković-Savić; Milenković, Veljković, Pavlović; Živković, Sergej Milinković-Savić, Lukić, Kostić; Tadić; Mitrović, Vlahović

On the other hand, England is among the favorites to win this final tournament, considering the fact that in the previous tournament it reached the final, which it lost at home at Wembley on penalty kicks against Italy.

England finished the group unbeaten with eight wins and two draws, the best attack with 22 goals scored and the best defense with four goals conceded. England surprised a little before the debut at Euro 2024, being defeated in the last friendly match, score 1-0 at home by Iceland, after in the previous match they had managed a 3-0 victory against Bosnia.
