On Sunday, Serbia celebrated its first placement at the European Championship after 24 years. However, the victory was not without drama. While they were losing to Bulgaria, Montenegro was leading in Hungary. This meant that if Bulgaria won, Serbia would not be going to the Euros. But luckily for them, Bulgaria failed to win and Hungary ended up winning 2-2 against Montenegro. This gave Serbia a point and they are now in the fourth strong group before the draw.
The Czech Republic won against Moldova and Slovenia won against Kazakhstan, thus winning the Euro and pushing Serbia into the fourth strong group before the draw! It is important to note that this group was formed based on the results in the qualifications, and there are four strong groups in total. The ball with the name of the Serbian national team will be found in the weakest hat on December 2nd.
While some may see this as a setback, it is important to remember that Serbia will not be able to get Italy out of their group as they will most likely also have to be in one of the last strong groups alongside Switzerland. This news has left some fans feeling disappointed but it is important to keep a positive attitude and look forward to what lies ahead for Serbia’s future in football.
