Denmark 0-0 Serbia: Danes Secure Knockout Spot Despite Goalless Draw

Denmark advanced to the Euro 2024 Round of 16 after a tense 0-0 draw against Serbia, who are now eliminated. Despite Denmark’s dominant possession and multiple chances, they couldn’t find the back of the net in their third consecutive draw of the tournament.

Christian Eriksen orchestrated Denmark’s midfield but their efforts fell short of converting into goals. Both teams had disallowed goals—Denmark from a corner that went out of play and Serbia for offside. Aleksandar Mitrovic’s appeals for penalties were also denied.

Serbia needed a win to progress but failed to register a shot in a dull first half. In the second half, Dusan Tadic’s introduction provided a spark for Serbia, delivering several dangerous crosses, but his teammates couldn’t capitalize.

Denmark’s draw was enough to see them progress, finishing as runners-up in Group C behind England, who also drew 0-0 with Slovenia. Denmark will face the hosts, Germany, in Dortmund in the next round. To pose a threat, they will need to find more creativity and capitalize on Germany’s high defensive line, potentially utilizing Rasmus Hojlund’s pace and Eriksen’s playmaking skills.

Christian Eriksen was the standout performer, controlling the midfield and creating opportunities, although his team was unable to convert his efforts into a winning goal.
