Euro 2024 Scotland

Euro 2024 Scotland Team | How Far Can They Go?

Scotland will be playing only for the fourth time at the Euros when the 2024 European Championship begins. They have never managed to get out of the group stage. Even though they played nine matches so far, they only won two times. The last time they played was at Euro 2020. As one of the host nations, they drew one and lost two games, finishing 22nd overall.

The Tartan Army has had an impressive Euro 2024 qualification cycle. They managed to beat Spain but eventually finished behind them in the group. Nevertheless, they ranked above Norway and Georgia which sent them directly among the 24 that will be playing at Euro 2024 in Germany this year.

Scotland plays with a lot of heart. They are a team that has always deserved more, but never managed to get over the hump. Is it finally time for them to show their true colours and achieve their biggest success in European Championship history?

Scotland Euro 2024 Squad – Who Are Their Most Important Players?

Leading the charge for the Euro 2024 Scotland team is team captain Andrew Robertson. The Liverpool man has had an injury-riddled season. Nevertheless, when he was fit, he brought his A-game and made important assists and passes for the Reds. Joining him in defence is former Arsenal defensive back Kieran Tierney. After leaving the Gunners for Real Sociedad, he raised his game. A move to Spain helped him evolve, which will benefit Scotland the most.

Scott McTominay was one of the best scorers in the qualifiers. He scored 7 goals, from midfield mind you. He was the sole reason Scotland defeated Spain, grabbing a brace against La Furia Roja. Also in the squad are Aston Villa’s John McGinn and the Southampton duo Ché Adams and Stuart Armstrong.

All in all, the Scotland squad for Euro 2024 seems much stronger than the one that competed three years ago.

Scotland Euro 2024 Fixtures – Here’s Where Things Get Tricky

Scotland’s group at Euro 2024 features the likes of Germany, Hungary, and Switzerland. As you can probably guess, Scotland is the biggest underdog, seen in someone’s eyes as the bottom team of the group.

Germany is obviously one of the favourites to win the whole tournament. Switzerland is an experienced team that has had significant success at some of the latest tournaments. While Hungary can be one of the potential surprises of the tournament. It does not leave a lot of room for Scotland to advance.

Nevertheless, there is still hope. Steve Clarke’s men are a resilient bunch. They will fight till the last second. If they manage to scrape a point off Germany, expect them to go full charge towards both the Swiss and the Hungarian teams.

All they have to remember is that they defeated Spain. They could become giant killers in a second and all they have to do is defeat Germany. We shall see in an instant as Scotland opens up the tournament with the game against the hosts.
