With four points in two matches and a goal difference of +2, it would take a cataclysm for Scotland to take second place in the group from Switzerland at the end of the final day of this group. Switzerland will thus be able to play with a free mind in Frankfurt against Germany even though it would have had a knife to its throat in the event of a defeat against Scotland.

Trailing very early in the match, Switzerland was saved, once again, by the inspiration of Xherdan Shaqiri (26th). Author of the equalizer with a masterful strike into the top corner, the Basel player, who did not come off the bench against Hungary, recalled that he was irreplaceable despite the weight of the years and a breath that is running out a little too much quickly.

At a good price

A “Flower of Scotland” wonderfully sung by the Tartan Army which must have resonated all the way to Edinburgh, and the opening of the score after only 13 minutes of play with Scott McTominay’s shot deflected by Fabian Schär while Yann Sommer seemed to be able to take this ball without any problem: the Scots could not have dreamed of a better start.

However, a lost ball by Tony Ralson offered an almost unexpected opening to Xherdan Shaqiri in the 26th. The no. 23 scored his 32nd goal for the selection, one of his finest, to give color to the Swiss team.

Scotland hits the post

In the 32nd minute, Dan Ndoye was very close to making it 2-1 at the conclusion of a truly beautiful collective action. Real poison for the Scottish defense, the Vaudois found the net a minute later before his success was canceled for offside.

But it was the Scots who had the clearest chance of this second half with a header on the Grand Hanley post (67th). Jostled by Scotland, Switzerland got away with it. It was far from showing the same collective mastery as against Hungary. She therefore did not break the Indian sign which means that she will never win her first two matches in a final phase.
