Serbia star takes aim at England and points out huge weakness after Euro 2024 clash

England defeated Serbia 1-0 in their opening Euro 2024 encounter, but Dusan Tadic thought England was playing for easy wins because of their lacklustre performance.

According to Serbia’s captain Dusan Tadic, England gave them ample room to win their opening match of the Euro 2024.

In the 13th minute, Jude Bellingham’s header was all that was needed for England to win 1-0 on Sunday night in Gelsenkirchen and take the three points. Predrag Rajkovic blocked Harry Kane’s strong header on the crossbar in the second half, which would have made the score 2-0.

Serbia gave Gareth Southgate’s team a lot of trouble, but in the first half, Aleksandar Mitrovic missed the mark and Dusan Vlahovic’s strong long-range effort was blocked by Jordan Pickford. That Vlahovic effort was the only one Serbia attempted on goal that Pickford had to stop in the second half, despite their pressure.

However, Tadic, who had an impact as a replacement in the second half, thinks his team showed enough to cause a surprise outcome. He said to Dutch network NOS, “England have big names but they give the opponent a lot of space.” “We might have injured them.”

Bellingham took charge of England’s early success as they dominated possession. However, following the open beginning, they withdrew into their shell, and there were a few nervous moments as they held onto their lead.

“They are a strong team,” Southgate said to the BBC. We endured some hardship, which was, in my opinion, very beneficial to us. The manner we defended the box, in my opinion, was very beneficial to us. A lot of the play truly impressed me. We didn’t play as well in the second half as I would have liked, but winning is still crucial.

Regarding Bellingham, he continued, “He writes his own screenplay.” The time at which he runs. In the development of his play, it was a fantastic passage of play. All of our forward guys, in my opinion, had excellent looks.

“We will score goals, I’m sure of it. It is difficult to create opportunities when playing against a back, but we succeeded. We have been working on that region a lot this week, so I loved that we had to suffer without the ball. We were definitely far more adept at it this week than we were last.”

“Good game,” stated Bellingham, the matchwinner. They seemed like a really hard side to me. a large, powerful bunch of guys, therefore it was crucial that we were well-prepared.

“The personnel did it correctly. We did a great job of preparing all week. We were aware of our roles. We make an effort to perform our own tasks and adhere to our own standards. That we are off to a strong start is vital. optimistic within the camp and moving on to the next
