Serbia failed to put up a fight as they were knocked out of Euro 2024 following a draw which saw Denmark progress.
Neither side produced a performance that reflected their potential, but Denmark were the better team in a forgettable encounter in Munich.
Jonas Wind had a goal disallowed for Denmark in the first half because the ball had gone out of play before he bundled it over the line from a corner.

The Wolfsburg forward also slipped as he tried to connect with a smart flick-on from Rasmus Hojlund, slicing over the bar from a good position, and was substituted at the break.
Denmark continued to create chances despite a poor display by their standards. Alexander Bah headed wide and Christian Eriksen’s shot had to be parried behind for a corner.
Serbia, who knew they would be eliminated if they did not win because of Slovenia’s stalemate with England in the other Group C match, had just one shot on target that came in second-half stoppage time.
They did have a goal ruled out when Luka Jovic’s shot bounced in off Denmark defender Joachim Anderson in the second half – but the striker was offside in the build-up.
Knowing their place in the last 16 was secure with a draw, a pragmatic Denmark side lacked ruthlessness. Although Jannik Vestergaard headed a corner delivery at Serbia goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic, they rarely tested him throughout the second half.
