Serbia is returning to EURO after 24 years. Interestingly, they have had a few World Cup appearances since then but have had many problems qualifying for EUROs. When Serbia's head coach, Dragan Stojkovic, took the job in 2021, it looked like the Balkan country finally found someone who could lead them to the football stardom. This optimism was buoyed by their impressive performance in the World Cup qualifiers, where they clinched the top spot in their group, even surpassing football giants like Portugal. However, after a poor World Cup appearance, Serbia turned to EURO qualifiers, where they were placed in one of the weakest groups but still had unexpectedly too many problems. Eventually, they finished second on the table and secured a place at EURO. 

Serbia's recent results were far from impressive as they won only two of the last six matches. In the previous game, Stojkovic's team won 1-0 on the road in a friendly against Cyprus. Serbia expected that playing versus one of the weakest teams from the EURO qualifiers could help their confidence, but Serbia failed to dominate in that game. Actually, Cyprus had a few solid chances late in the game to snatch a draw. 

England have been waiting for a major title since the World Cup in 1966. At the previous EURO, they were close, but eventually, England lost in the final against Italy. Gareth Southgate went through EURO qualifiers almost untested as they finished with a commanding six points more than the second-best in the group, Italy. However, in March, England had two friendly matches, in which they failed to win (1-0 loss against Brazil and 2-2 against Belgium). 

Serbia vs England pick: England to win and cover AH -1 spread

Serbia didn't play well in the last year. They struggled in almost every game during qualifications, so England should have an easy task. We should expect Gareth Southgate's team to win and cover AH -1 spread.

Serbia team news

The attacking line with Dusan Vlahovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic is for sure the best part of the Serbian team. However, Dragan Stojkovic's team has problems defensively where they don't have big stars. Also, Serbia is playing formation with three center-backs, but the team lacks a right wing-back. In that position we should expect Andrija Zivkovic from PAOK, but his natural position is the right-winger, so Serbia had too many problems on that side in recent games.

England team news

England have stars in almost every position. Maybe the weakest link is Everton's goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. However, England is probably stronger than Serbia in every position, so they shouldn't have too many problems to score three or four goals in the first EURO round.
