Euro 2024 – Slovenia 1-1 Serbia: Luka Jovic scores dramatic equaliser to rescue Group C point for Serbia

Report from Euro 2024 as Serbia scored deep into injury time to earn a 1-1 draw with Slovenia; Zan Karnicnik’s goal looked to have earned Slovenia their first-ever win at the Euros,

only for Luka Jovic to score in the 96th minute; England will finish top of Group C if they beat Denmark.

Luka Jovic scored a dramatic equaliser to earn Serbia a vital point as they held Slovenia to a 1-1 draw – denying their opponents their first-ever win at the European Championships.

Zan Karnicnik’s second-half goal looked to be enough for Slovenia to secure a famous victory but, in the 96th minute, substitute Jovic flicked a header into the bottom corner from Ivan Ilic’s cross to spark wild celebrations among the Serbia supporters.

Slovenia were the sharper side for much of the contest and almost led when Timi Elsnik struck the post, while Benjamin Sesko lifted the rebound over the bar.

Serbia belatedly came to life but found Jan Oblak in fine form, with Aleksandar Mitrovic twice denied by the goalkeeper before striking the bar from close range, while Jaka Bijol almost shanked a cross into his own net.

Slovenia then struck when Karnicnik stole in at the back post and they were within seconds of history, only for Jovic to score – a goal that means England will finish top of Group C if they beat Denmark on Thursday evening.

Slovenia may have been the least favoured of the four Group C sides ahead of Euro 2024 but they have shown across their two matches in Germany that they are a side to be respected.

After taking a point from Denmark in their opening game, Matjaz Kek’s side impressed for large portions of their meeting with Serbia – a team England struggled to break down in their previous fixture.
