Serbia's Euro 2024 Journey Ends in Disappointment with Draw Against Denmark

Serbia’s Euro 2024 campaign ends in frustration after a 0-0 draw with Denmark. Captain Aleksandar Mitrovic and coach Dragan Stojkovic reflect on the missed opportunities and emotional toll.

Germany, Bollywood Fever: Serbia’s hopes for advancing in Euro 2024 were dashed after a 0-0 draw with Denmark on Tuesday, resulting in their elimination from the tournament. Despite their relentless efforts in the final minutes, Serbia couldn’t secure the goal they desperately needed.

Captain and veteran striker Aleksandar Mitrovic expressed the team’s frustration, saying, “We did our best. We have not created enough chances to score the goal and that cost us. It is a bitter feeling.” As the match progressed, Mitrovic’s frustration grew, mirroring the team’s struggles and their near miss in the last World Cup in Qatar. “It is the worst when you are so near and you can do it and at the end you fail. This is a similar feeling we had in Qatar. We’re emotionally drained,” he added.

Serbia concluded their Euro 2024 campaign in last place in Group C, with two draws and one loss. Their journey included a narrow 1-0 defeat to England and a 1-1 draw with Slovenia before their final encounter with Denmark in Munich.

Forward Dusan Tadic echoed the sentiment of disappointment, stating, “It is a huge disappointment. Realistically, it is a failure.” Goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic also shared his regret, saying, “Definitely there is regret. I feel sorry for the fans who came to support us here and who watched the game on their TVs.”

Coach Dragan Stojkovic paid tribute to the passionate Serbia supporters who followed the team in Germany. He acknowledged the fans’ disappointment and shared in their frustration over the outcome. “Of course we’re disappointed because of the result. The match was very balanced. We were looking for one opportunity, for one goal … Now we will move on,” he said.

Stojkovic highlighted the team’s bravery and effort, particularly in the final minutes when he pushed multiple strikers forward in an attempt to break Denmark’s defense. “We did everything possible. I put three, four strikers up front to try and break the defense. We played brave football, we tried to do our best. But it’s not easy you know,” he explained.

Despite the disappointment, Stojkovic maintained a positive outlook, stating, “I don’t have anything to be ashamed of. I will walk with my head high … There is no reason to see things as tragic, nor will it ever be a tragedy when we are talking about games and sport.”

As Serbia looks ahead, the team and its supporters will reflect on the lessons learned from this campaign, with hopes of a stronger performance in future tournaments.
