Scotland produce ‘good reaction to disappointing night’ to boost Euro 2024 hopes

Steve Clarke claims the real Scotland showed themselves in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland which keeps their Euro 2024 hopes alive.

The Scots were thrashed 5-1 by Germany in the opening Group A game in Munich on Friday, which left the Scots boss and the Tartan Army demanding a reaction which they got.

Scott McTominay’s shot in the 13th minute was deflected in by Swiss defender Fabian Schar before Xherdan Shaqiri took advantage of an Anthony Ralston error in the 26th minute to level in Cologne.

Germany have qualified on six points, Switzerland are on four with Scotland on one ahead of their final game against pointless Hungary in Stuttgart on Sunday.

“It was what we expected,” said Clarke, who confirmed defender Kieran Tierney will not play against Hungary after picking up an injury and being taken off on a stretcher.

“This is the way we have been playing as a team for the last three or four years. It is why we are here at a major tournament.

“I thought it was a good team performance against a good opponent.

“It was a good reaction to a disappointing night and we are still alive in the tournament.

“Sometimes as a player or manager it doesn’t go your way and it certainly didn’t go our way on Friday night.

“Tonight was about getting back to what we are good at, working hard, making sure we got the preparation right, and I think we did.

“They are going to feel a lot better going into the next game on the back of that kind of performance.

“We showed that as well as the aggression and fight and that dirty side of the game if you like, we can play.

“When we get the ball down we play, we created some chances, Switzerland created some chances.

“We did what we had to do and are still in the competition.”
