Serbia prepare for Euros with impressive Sweden win

2024/06/08 19:07

England's Group C opponents Serbia recorded an impressive 3-0 win in Sweden in their final friendly match before Euro 2024. 

Dragan Stojkovic's side put in a clinical display on the eve of this summer's tournament in Germany and the Serbs took the lead in the first-half courtesy of Al-Hilal midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's 16th minute strike. 

After the break, another Al-Hilal player, Aleksander Mitrovic doubled Serbia's lead on the hour mark and former Southampton playmaker Dusan Tadic then added a third on 70 minutes to settle the contest. 

Sweden bossed nearly two-thirds of the possession and recorded 20 shots, but were unable to find a way through their stubborn visitors' rearguard. 

Serbia will now face England on Sunday 16 June in both sides' opening Euro 2024 game in Group C.

As a fan of England, I'm feeling a mix of excitement and nerves after hearing about Serbia's impressive win against Sweden. They seem to be in top form and it will definitely be a tough match when England faces them in the group stage. But I have faith in our team and I'm optimistic that we will come out on top. Can't wait for the tournament to begin!

Wow, what a performance from Serbia! They really seem to be hitting their stride just in time for Euro 2024. It's going to be a tough match against England, but I have faith in my team to come out on top.

As a fan of England, this is definitely a disappointment. Losing 3-0 to Serbia in their final friendly match before Euro 2024 is not a good sign for our team. We need to step up our game and improve our tactics before facing them in our opening game. Hopefully we can turn things around and come out victorious.

As an England fan, I have to say I'm not feeling too content about our chances against Serbia. After seeing their impressive 3-0 win against Sweden, it's clear that they are a force to be reckoned with. We'll have to bring our A-game if we want to come out on top in our opening Euro 2024 match.
