Euro 2024: Scotland Keeps Knockout Qualification Hopes Alive After 1-1 Draw Vs Switzerland

Scotland kept their Euro 2024 hopes alive after a thrilling 1-1 draw with Switzerland in Group A on Wednesday.

Manchester United midfielder Scot McTominay has given Scotland the lead before Xherdan Shaqiri’s stunner cancelled out the opener.

The result means that Scotland sit third in the group on one point but know that a win in their last group game over Hungary would potentially send them through depending on the other groups.

Scotland were a changed side compared to the team that were demolished in Munich five days ago.

They opened the scoring in the 13th minute after a 10-minute passage that saw them show more intensity and astuteness than they did in the entire 90 minutes against Germany.

McTominay’s shot capped off a quick counter-attack, with Fabian Schar getting in the way and turning it into his own goal although the goal was later given to the United man.

But a stunner from Shaqiri on 26 minutes drew Switzerland after profiting from Scotland’s poor attempt to play out from the back.

Hosts Germany made it two wins out of two as they beat Hungary 2-0 thanks to goals from Jamal Musiala and Ilkay Gundogan.

Earlier on Wednesday, Croatia were held to a shocking 2-2 draw against Albania.

    The Euro tournament has been fantastic so far.
    Albania have been a pleasant surprise for me. Their fighting spirit is a joy to watch. They pushed Italy to the brink before losing narrowly, and they nicked a point of Croatia today. Impressive!
    The goals so far have been quite splendid. Unlike the ANYWHERE BELLE FACE attempts we are used to seeing from Nigeria players, great technique is on display. Examples are Shaqiri’s strike vs Scotland, the first two Turkiye goals against Georgia, Musiala and Fullkrug’s goals for Germany versus Scotland again.
    Poor Scots. Dem just dey collect anyhow. LOOOOOL.
    Also have to mention the powerful shooting on display by the teams, Romania in particular. Their star boy Stanciu has been red hot. Teams at this tournament shoot at goal hard. Shots at goal are a weapon, not the tepid, insecure strikes we often see from our own players.
    Our new coach has a lot of work to do. If we somehow manage to qualify for the world cup, how are we going to overcome fired up minnows Albania, Romania, Turkiye, or any of the other more established nations?
    Instead of us to go there and get wotowotized, is it not better to jejely remain at home? I don’t have the stomach for 9 nil defeats ooo. The kind Zaire was collecting up and down at the 1974 world cup.
