Scotland v Switzerland: Xherdan Shaqiri rescues point but Scots keep Euro 2024 hopes alive

Switzerland boss Murat Yakin hailed Xherdan Shaqiri's ability to produce magical moments after his stunning strike rescued a valuable 1-1 draw against Scotland at Euro 2024 on Wednesday.

Yakin's side trailed to Scott McTominay's early goal in Cologne, but Shaqiri put Switzerland back on level terms in eye-catching style.

The former Liverpool forward pounced on Anthony Ralston's wayward backpass and curled a sublime finish into the top corner from the edge of the area.

It is the sixth-straight major international tournament in which Shaqiri has scored, dating to the World Cup in 2014.

That’s three World Cups in a row and now three European Championships for the Chicago Fire forward.

It was one of the goals of the tournament so far and Yakin was quick to praise his diminutive forward.

"Shaqiri proved tonight that he lives and breathes for moments like that. He has shown that time and again down the years," Yakin said.

"He really deserves that moment. It was an unbelievably clinical strike. He did the only thing he could do. It really helped the team out."
