With a goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Serbia secured a point against Slovenia.

Luka Jović had a different plan and in the fifth minute of added time, he gave Serbia a glimmer of hope that they could reach the knockout stage with a win against Denmark in the final round.

With our performance against Slovenia, we did not suggest this outcome, as we managed to secure a 1-1 draw with very poor play and a lot of luck.

Ivan Ilić sent a perfect ball from a corner, and the until-then almost invisible Jović once again demonstrated his skill by heading the ball past the excellent Jan Oblak.

When it seemed Serbia would lose their second match at the European Championship with a minimal result of 1-0, Luka Jović was quicker than the whistle. He rose highest after the set piece, meaning Serbia's fate will depend on their direct duel with Denmark.

"I think it is the most important goal because there is a possibility that it will be very significant. Against Scotland, I scored in the 95th minute, and we didn't go to the World Cup because we lost on penalties, but now I hope it will be important," Jović said after the match to TV Arena Sport.

A draw is the most realistic outcome for "zmajčki" (little dragons), according to him.

"We played two good matches against quality opponents. We lost the first match but deserved more. Today, we have the most realistic outcome considering the chances Slovenia had in the first half. Both today and against the English, we went for three points. We will prepare the same way against the Danes," Jović concluded.
