Serbia

Serbia is up against the favored side, England which compel them to adopt a more pragmatic approach in this game. Serbia, who are admired by their well-organized defense and quick counterattacks, Sergej Milinković-Savić’s creative skills and Aleksandar Mitrović’s goal-scoring prowess. The 2 players are one of the key players in the Al Hilal, the Saudi Pro League club player.

Serbia never had a critical confrontation against England before except once in their friendly game and they lost it. However, the season are changing and their time is now to write the history in this tournament. We expect them to be more resilient to loss so that they do not drop their first point.

England

There are many critics ahead of this game as the three Lions fails to find consistency in their warm ups. English squad is known for being a pool of talented young players and this alone give their supporters a confident to waive their recent friendly games setbacks. Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane, Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka, Declan Rice, just fewer to mention are all set to engage in fierce battle against Serbians. However, Harry Maguire will miss this match due to injury.

Coming from a 1-0 loss to Iceland, Gareth Southgate could be very keen for a perfect start of the Euro 2024. Underestimating Serbia can not be the best motivational phrase for the English manager in this round hence the need to claim all points out of Serbia might be given the highest priority to skip any setbacks in the other critical games.
