Football News: Serbia Earn Vital Point Against Slovenia in Euro 2024 Thriller

In a dramatic encounter at the European Championships, Serbia salvaged a crucial point against Slovenia in a 1-1 draw. The match, played on June 13th, 2024, saw Serbia’s substitute Luka Jovic score a last-gasp equalizer in the 96th minute to deny Slovenia their first-ever win at the Euros.

“Slovenia had taken the lead in the second half through Zan Karnicnik’s strike, and they were on the verge of securing a famous victory. However, Jovic’s header from Ivan Ilic’s cross in the dying moments of the game sparked wild celebrations among the Serbia supporters.”

The match was a closely contested affair, with Slovenia being the sharper side for large portions of the game. Timi Elsnik hit the post, and Benjamin Sesko missed the rebound, while Serbia’s star strikers Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic struggled to find the net. Mitrovic had six shots and an expected goals total of 0.92, but failed to score, while Vlahovic was disappointing, registering an expected goals total of just 0.21 across both of Serbia’s fixtures.

Despite the disappointment, Slovenia have shown that they are a team to be reckoned with at Euro 2024. They have lost just two of their previous 23 matches in all competitions and possess quality players like goalkeeper Jan Oblak and striker Benjamin Sesko.

The result means that England will finish top of Group C if they beat Denmark on Thursday evening. Serbia, on the other hand, have been one of the disappointments of the tournament so far, and they will need to find more from their star-studded attack if they are to have a chance of progressing to the knockout stages.
