Scotland vs Switzerland LIVE! Euro 2024 result, match stream and latest updates today

Scotland kept alive their hopes of reaching the last 16 at Euro 2024 with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in a gripping Group A game on Wednesday.

Eager to make up for their 5-1 rout by Germany, Scotland were roared on by thousands of fans and made a dream start when Scott McTominay's on-target 13th-minute shot was turned in by Swiss defender Fabian Schar.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Switzerland, who would have ensured a top-two spot with victory, levelled in spectacular fashion when recalled forward Xherdan Shaqiri curled a brilliant shot into the top corner following a defensive error.

Switzerland twice had goals disallowed after tight offside decisions -- one in the first half by Dan Ndoye and late on by substitute Breel Embolo -- but Scotland also went close when Grant Hanley headed against the post.

Switzerland are second behind group leaders Germany on four points while Scotland are third with one and must beat Hungary in Stuttgart to advance.

Scotland dealt major blow ahead of Euro 2024 decider with Hungary

23:45 , Jonathan Gorrie

Scotland will be without Kieran Tierney for their must-win Euro 2024 clash with Hungary on Sunday.

The Arsenal defender, who spent last season on loan with Real Sociedad, was stretchered off during Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland.

Tierney was replaced by Scott McKenna in the 61st minute as the Scots held on to ensure their campaign goes on until at least the final group game.

Scotland skipper Andy Robertson wants a quick-fire improvement from his team after their 5-1 defeat to Germany.

"Maybe the occasion got to a couple of us," said the Liverpool left-back.

“You saw in the qualifiers, we were full of belief, trust, we were going for every ball. Maybe on Friday we played with a little fear and that has to change.

“We know, and the whole country knows, we should have done better. We want to show this tournament what Scotland is about."

After suffering opening-night stage fright, it is do-or-die for Scotland.

Steve Clarke's men must get something against Switzerland in Cologne tonight to keep alive their chances of reaching the knockout stage, and captain Andy Robertson says they have to shake the "fear" that consumed them in their 5-1 collapse against Germany.

"Maybe the occasion got to a couple of us," said the Liverpool left-back. "You saw in the qualifiers, we were full of belief, trust, we were going for every ball. Maybe on Friday we played with a little fear, and that has to change.

The Swiss are the favourites and have the greater tournament pedigree among the two teams, having missed just one major tournament since Euro 2004.

However, Scotland will have rolled their sleeves up after a rout from Germany on opening night, and they might just spring a surprise by getting off the mark.

A 1-1 draw.

Switzerland team news vs Scotland today

17:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Switzerland have a clean bill of health after coming through Saturday’s 3-1 win over Hungary unscathed. That means the likes of Granit Xhaka, Remo Freuler and Fabian Schar could all start. Breel Embolo could force his way into the starting line-up after scoring their third off the bench in stoppage time.


Scotland team news vs Switzerland today

17:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

Ryan Porteous will serve a suspension against Switzerland after being shown a straight red card by referee Clement Turpin for a studs-up challenge on Ilkay Gundogan that led to Kai Havertz’s penalty goal in Scotland’s opening-night 5-1 defeat to hosts Germany in Munich on Friday.

That could mean Grant Hanley, who came off the bench against Germany, could be handed his first start of the tournament as Steve Clarke caters for that red card to Porteous.
