Scotland Draw with Switzerland to Keep Euro 2024 Last-16 Hopes Alive

Scotland managed to secure a vital point against Switzerland, keeping their Euro 2024 campaign alive despite dealing with injuries and setbacks.

Scott McTominay, a key player in Scotland’s qualification journey, nearly electrified the Cologne Stadium with a deflected shot that found the back of the net at the 13-minute mark.

However, an errant back pass from Anthony Ralston provided an opening for Xherdan Shaqiri, who capitalized on the error with a precise first-time shot, beating Angus Gunn and leveling the score.

Kieran Tierney experienced a hamstring issue while chasing Dan Ndoye, who missed a significant opportunity when through on goal. Tierney’s injury will sideline him for the upcoming match against Hungary on Sunday.

Despite being stretched thin in defense, Scotland showed resilience in the final moments. Grant Hanley came close to scoring with a header that struck the post following an Andy Robertson free-kick.

The Swiss team missed several late chances, allowing Scotland to secure a draw. This result moves Scotland to third place in Group A. A victory against Hungary could enable Scotland to advance past the group stage for the first time in their history.
