Serbian defender Strahinja Pavlović discussed the upcoming match against England at Euro 2024, emphasizing the importance of team effort in stopping players like Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham.

Serbia is ready for the start of Euro 2024 in Germany. Speaking to the press in Augsburg was Strahinja Pavlović, the star defender from Salzburg.

How big a test is this for your team, and what can Serbia achieve in this match? asked a journalist from the British "Sun".

"The first match will be the toughest. We will prepare the best we can and try to achieve a positive result."

Harry Kane? How to prepare?

"He had a very good season, but if you want to stop such players, you have to play as a team. We must move together, defend together, and attack together. We worked a lot on that. We are at our best when we have possession, but it will be difficult against them. We must find a good balance between attack and defense. We have a few more days to prepare."

About Jude Bellingham...

"A great player, what can I say? He has achieved so much this season and is in great form. We must be fully focused to stop him," Pavlović said clearly.

Did the coach insist on more forwards participating in defense?

"We had much more time than before Qatar, 15 days, two friendly matches, which is enough time to work on some things. We have always played to score more goals, but we worked on having our offensive players help us at the back. The whole team must attack and defend. That is the key to victory."

What is the basis for the team's calmness, and what did the coach insist on?

"I can't say too much about that. We worked on our problems, and we worked separately on defense and attack. We also worked on physical fitness and individually."

How important was it not to concede a goal against Sweden, and how much does the support of the fans mean to you?

"Of course, it was good not to concede a goal. Defensively, we played a great match, and we played well overall. We are delighted to have had such great support during training, and it will be important to have strong support in the matches as well."
