Scotland’s Euro 2024 aspirations in jeopardy following draw with Switzerland – 5 key points – Mirror Online

Scotland’s hopes of progressing into the knockout stages of Euro 2024 are uncertain after they drew with Switzerland, following a defeat by Germany. Steve Clarke’s side needed a win to stand a chance of advancing from Group A. They took an early lead but Switzerland soon equalized. Scotland must now beat Hungary to have a shot at reaching the Last 16.

Despite a solid start, an error from Anthony Ralston led to Switzerland equalizing. Shaqiri scored with a beautiful shot, and Gunn, who had conceded five goals against Germany, looked uneasy throughout the match. Shaqiri’s goal marked his seventh major tournament at the international level, a unique achievement for a Switzerland national team player. Scotland’s participation is expected to prompt a tactical rethink from boss Steve Clarke.

Tierney’s injury forced a defensive reshuffle, and the team will need to show more passion in their final game against Hungary. As their future in the tournament hinges on results from other groups, the Scottish side’s fate remains uncertain.
