Before the game, Serbia’s hooligans had dominated all the headlines after the German police revealed they had gathered information that 500 of them were ready to battle the English supporters before during and after the game.

It was reported that the two countries’ fans clashed before the kick-off as expected.

The game got underway with very tight security assembled around the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen.

Trent Alexander Arnold started in midfield alongside Declan Rice as predicted with Jude Bellingham, Saka and Foden serving as the playmakers to Harry Kane.

Gareth Southgate’s men had a great start as they enjoyed the first 30 minutes of the game superbly. In the 12th minute, Jude Bellingham powerfully headed in Saka’s deflected cross to give the Three Lions a lead.

England headed into the break ahead 1-0 but had lost momentum as the Serbians were dominating.

In the second half, substitute Jared Bowen’s cross was met by Kane whose headed effort only crashed the crossbar after Serbia’s keeper had impressively thwarted the effort.

Serbia with two minutes left nearly equalised with Juventus’ striker Vlahovic’s long-range effort denied by Pickford.

England nervously kept a clean sheet after defending pretty well to win 1-0 against the impressive Serbians.

The Three Lions will next play against Denmark in their second game as a win will see them progress to the next stage.
