Djordje Petrovic and Serbia salvaged a point at Euro 2024 to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage alive.

Substitute Luka Jovic was the hero for Serbia, heading home an injury-time equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw against Slovenia and ensure they earned their first point in Group C.

Blues keeper Petrovic took his place on the bench in Munich, just as he did during Serbia's narrow defeat to England on matchday one.

Predrag Rajkovic was instead given the nod in goal and was forced to make a smart save only eight minutes in from Jan Mlakar's low drive.

Serbia came close to breaking the deadlock just after the interval only for opposition goalkeeper Jan Oblak to pull off a fine save of his own to deny former Newcastle United and Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Rajkovic was then forced into an acrobatic stop from Benjamin Sesko in the second half as both sides began to throw more bodies forward in search of a winner.

And it was Slovenia who managed to find the crucial breakthrough with just over 20 minutes remaining, defender Zan Karnicnik arriving at the back post to fire home after he was picked out by Timi Max Elsnik.

Serbia did mount a response but it looked in vein with the woodwork denying Mitrovic, before Lazar Samardzic drilled a shot wide.

That was until the last kick of the game. A Serbian corner found Jovic in a crowded penalty area and the AC Milan forward steered home a close-range header to spark wild celebrations.

Next up for Petrovic and Serbia is a meeting with Denmark in Munich on Sunday [8pm] in the final round of matches in group C.

A win for Petrovic's nation could be essential, with the top two from each group automatically qualifying for the round of 16, plus the four best third-placed sides progressing.
