Player Ratings: Scotland vs. Switzerland – Shaqiri’s Stunner and Gunn’s Heroics Keep Scots Competitive

Scotland secured a valuable point against Switzerland with a 1-1 draw in their second Group C fixture.

Steve Clarke had promised a strong response to their initial defeat against Germany at Euro 2024, and Scotland took the lead when Fabian Schar deflected Scott McTominay’s goalbound effort past Yann Sommer.

However, Switzerland equalized before halftime in spectacular fashion, with Xherdan Shaqiri delivering a brilliant finish into the top corner after a Scottish defensive error.

The draw leaves Switzerland well-positioned for the knockout rounds, while Scotland must defeat Hungary to keep their hopes of advancing to the last-16 alive.
