Serbia XI vs England: Starting lineup, confirmed Euro 2024 team news and injuries today

It is an experienced line-up for Serbia against England in today’s Euro 2024 clash, with Chelsea goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic missing out on a place in the XI.

Dragan Stojkovic’s side arrive in Germany similar to the Three Lions in having experienced mixed fortunes during last week’s final warm-up friendlies, losing 2-1 to Austria in Vienna before brushing aside Sweden 3-0 in Solna last Saturday.


Serbia are appearing at the European Championship for the very first time as an independent nation, having been knocked out in the group stages of three of the past four World Cup tournaments.

They finished as runners-up behind Hungary in qualifying, taking second spot and automatic qualification from Group G with four total wins from their eight matches.

Former Southampton stalwart Dusan Tadic, who now plays his club football in Turkey with Fenerbahce, misses out on a place in the starting lineup.

An impressive attack is spearheaded by former Fulham and Newcastle frontman Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is now scoring for fun in Saudi Arabia with Al-Hilal, supported by Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic with AC Milan’s Luka Jovic among the substitutes.

Fulham’s Sasa Lukic and Filip Kostic of Juventus start in midfield, with Chelsea No1 Petrovic on the bench.

Starting XI: Rajkovic, Milenkovic, Veljkovic, Pavlovic, Zivkovic, Milinkovic-Savic, Lukic, Gudelj, Kostic, Mitrovic, Vlahovic.

Subs: Stojic, Maksimovic, Jovic, Tadic, Petrovic, Babic, Mijailovic, Ilic, Ratkov, Samardzic, Gacinovic, Milinkovic-Savic, Spajic, Mladenovic, Birmancevic
