England Triumphs Over Serbia in Euro 2024 Opener

In a thrilling start to their Euro 2024 campaign, England secured a narrow victory against Serbia with a scoreline of 1-0 in Germany. The Euro 2020 runners-up showcased their dominance early on, with an opening goal that set the tone for the rest of the match.

The goal came just 13 minutes into the game, as Bukayo Saka delivered a precise cross to Jude Bellingham, who headed the ball into the net, marking a dream start for England. The young duo’s synergy was palpable, with Saka’s agility and Bellingham’s precision combining to overcome Serbia’s defence.

Gareth Southgate’s starting eleven raised eyebrows with some unexpected choices. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Declan Rice formed an unconventional central midfield pairing, while Jude Bellingham was positioned further up the field to maximise his attacking prowess.

The complete line-up featured Jordan Pickford guarding the posts, with Kyle Walker, John Stones, Marc Guehi, and Kieran Trippier forming a formidable defensive wall. The midfield was bolstered by the presence of Alexander-Arnold and Rice, while Saka and Phil Foden provided width and creativity. Up front, Harry Kane led the line as England’s striking force.

A standout moment came when Walker connected with Saka, who showcased his versatility by dropping short and then darting behind the defence. Saka’s weaker right foot sent in a cross that caused chaos in Serbia’s defence, culminating in Bellingham’s powerful header that left Serbia’s goalkeeper Rajkovic with no chance.
