Manchester United duo start in Euro 2024 clash against Serbia

Denmark need to beat Serbia in Munich to guarantee a spot in the Euro 2024 knockout rounds.

We’ll be rooting for the Danes since they have two Manchester United players involved, with Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund in tonight’s line-up.

The teams

Denmark: Schmeichel, Andersen, Vestergaard, Christensen, Bah, Hjulmand, Hojbjerg, Maehle, Eriksen, Wing, Hojlund. Subs: Kjaer, Jensen, Delaney, Skov Olsen, Dolberg, Jorgensen, Damsgaard, Norgaard, Hermansen, Kristiansen, Poulsen, Ronnow, Dreyer, Kristiensen, Bruun Larsen.

Serbia: Rajkovic, Veljkovic, Milkenkovic, Pavlovic, Mijailovic, Ilic, Gudelj, Zivkovic, Samardzic, Luklic, Mitrovic. Subs: Stojic, Makismovic, Vlahovic, Jovic, Tadic, Petrovic, Babic, Ratkov, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Gacinovic, Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, Spajic, Mladenovic, Birmancevic.

Denmark have drawn their opening two games in Euro 2024, but their performance against England gave reason to believe they can get a positive result against the Serbs.

Eriksen is Denmark’s creative spark, despite having less impact in games for United last season. His team-mate Hojlund is looking for his first goal at his first European Championship.

Their opponents tonight, Serbia, lost their opening match and then needed a late equaliser to avoid a second defeat, this time against Slovenia. They go into the game placed at the bottom of Group C.
