The eagerly anticipated Euro 2024 clash between Serbia and England is set to unfold at the Veltins-Arena on Sunday.

As both teams gear up for their first match in the group stage, fans and analysts are speculating on the likely starting lineups. Here’s a comprehensive look at the predicted XI for both teams.

Serbia's Predicted Lineup

Serbia, making a fresh appearance in the European Championship as an independent nation, is led by head coach Dragan Stojkovic.

Known for their robust attack, Serbia will be relying on key players to make an impact.

Serbia's Likely XI

Goalkeeper: Vanja Milinkovic-Savic

Defenders: Milos Veljkovic, Nikola Milenkovic, Strahinja Pavlovic

Midfielders: Andrija Zivkovic, Nemanja Maksimovic, Sasa Lukic, Filip Kostic

Forwards: Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Dusan Tadic, Aleksandar Mitrovic

Stojkovic is expected to field a balanced team, with Dusan Tadic likely to return to the attacking third.

The duo of Mitrovic and Vlahovic up top has been avoided in recent games, so Mitrovic might lead the attack solo.

England's Predicted Lineup

England, under Gareth Southgate, aims to start strong after a mixed set of recent performances.

Despite some pre-tournament hiccups, the Three Lions are fielding a near full-strength squad.

England's Likely XI

Goalkeeper: Jordan Pickford

Defenders: Kyle Walker, John Stones, Marc Guehi, Kieran Trippier

Midfielders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Declan Rice

Attackers: Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden

Striker: Harry Kane

Southgate will likely utilise Trent Alexander-Arnold in a midfield role following his impressive display against Bosnia.

The team’s defensive stability will hinge on Stones, who has recovered from an ankle knock.

Key Players to Watch

Serbia

Aleksandar Mitrovic: Known for his aerial prowess, Mitrovic will be a key threat to England’s defence.

Dusan Tadic: The experienced forward is crucial in creating scoring opportunities.

England

Harry Kane: England’s captain and primary goal scorer.

Jude Bellingham: The young midfielder brings dynamism and creativity to England’s attack.
