Euro 2024: Germany Force Switzerland To 1-1 Draw, Top Group A

Hosts Germany came back from a goal down to snatch a 1-1 draw with Switzerland thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Niclas Fuellkrug.

The draw sends Germany into the knockout stage of Euro 2024 as winners of Group A, with the Swiss finishing in second place.

Germany’s Robert Andrich had a 17th-minute goal ruled out for a foul in the build-up, and 11 minutes later Dan Ndoye scored with a deft volleyed finish for the Swiss before striking the foot of the post two minutes later.

Germany mounted enormous pressure in the second half but they struggled to get shots on target, and substitute Fuellkrug had to bale them out with a late header to grab a share of the spoils and secure the group victory.

Germany will now face the second-placed team in Group C, with England, Denmark, Slovenia or Serbia all still in the mix, in Dortmund on June 29.

On their part, Switzerland will play the second-placed team in Group B on the same day in Berlin, with Italy, Albania and Croatia their potential opponents.

In Group A other game Hungary scored in the 10th minute of stoppage to beat Scotland 1-0 thanks to Kevin Csoboth’s strike.

Hungary end the group stage on third on three points and will have to wait to see if they will qualify as one of the best third-placed teams.
