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.
