The Dailysports team tells you what you need to know about one of the participants in the tournament - the Serbian national team.

What is Serbia's highest achievement in the history of European Championships?

The Serbian national team will only write the history of European Championships at the tournament in Germany, as Euro 2024 will be the first continental championship for the team.

Who was included in the Serbian national team's squad for Euro 2024?

On 27 May, Serbian national team head coach Dragan Stojkovic determined the final list of 26 players.

  • Goalkeepers: Vanja Milinkovic-Savic (Torino), Predrag Rajkovic (Mallorca), George Petrovic (Chelsea).
  • Defenders: Strahinja Pavlovic (RB Salzburg), Nikola Milenkovic (Fiorentina), Milos Veljkovic (Werder), Srdjan Babic (Spartak), Uros Spajic (Red Star), Nimanija Stojic (TSC).

Who is the head coach of the Serbian national team?

Serbian players will be led by 59-year-old domestic specialist Dragan Stojkovic. He took over the Balkan team relatively recently, in 2021, and managed to take it to two consecutive international tournaments.

Notably, the former Crvena Zvezda and Olympique Marseille midfielder worked abroad for 10 years, leading Japan's Nagoya Grampus from 2008-2013 and being the head coach of China's Guangzhou from 2015-2020.

How did Serbia qualify for Euro 2024?

The Serbian national team battled Hungary, Montenegro, Lithuania and Bulgaria in the qualifying group for a trip to the Euros. Three points ahead of Montenegro, the Serbs won 14 points and qualified for the Euros for the first time in history.

What is the schedule of matches in Serbia's group at Euro 2024?

In the Euro 2024 group, the Serbs will play against Slovenia, Denmark and England.

  • 16.06 21:00 Serbia - England (Arena Auf-Schalke, Gelsenkirchen)
  • 20.06 15:00 Slovenia - Serbia (Allianz Arena, Munich)
  • 25.06 21:00 Denmark - Serbia (Allianz Arena, Munich)

What kit will the Serbian national team wear at Euro 2024?

Nike, the manufacturer of kit, was inspired by the Serbian national eagle, and it is the likeness of its wings that can be seen on the home uniform. The away kit is made in a rather simple format.

What are the odds for the Serbian national team at Euro 2024?

Due to their debutant status, the Serbs are not the tournament favourites. The odds to win the tournament are 90, and bookmakers give the Balkan team third place in the group with odds of 2.6.
