Late leveler denies Slovenia first Euros win in draw with Serbia at Euro 2024

By Daniella Matar, The Associated Press on June 20, 2024.

MUNICH (AP) – A late strike denied Slovenia a first ever win in a European Championship as Serbia snatched a 1-1 draw on Thursday.

Žan Karničnik’s 69th-minute goal put Slovenia on the brink of an historic win until substitute Luka Jović levelled deep in stoppage time.

The goal sent the Serbia fans into raucous joy but also saw them throw flares and other objects onto the field.

The equalizer was virtually the last action as the referee blew fulltime immediately after the players restarted. The Slovenia players collapsed to the ground in disappointment.

Slovenia, which drew with Denmark in its opener, plays England in its final group match on Tuesday, when Serbia faces Denmark.

Serbia lost to England in their opener.
