The embarrassment the Titan Army suffered on Friday night against Germany was unbelievable. They were flat in Munich and many thought it was going to dump their spirit against Switzerland.

Scotland stepped up as head coach Steve Clark demanded. The atmosphere at the RheinEnergieStadion was electric with Scottish fans chanting and cheering their boys on.

Manchester United’s midfielder Scott McTominay opened the scoring with his deflected shot from inside the eighteen-yard box going past Yann Sommer. That was the start every Scottish had dreamed of.

33-year-old Xherdan Shaqiri, the Alpine Messi, equalised with a delightful Messi-esque strike from the edge of the box in the 26th minute for Switzerland.

Dan Ndoye forced Scotland keeper Angus Gunn to make a great save in the 32nd minute.

The first half ended 1-1 with Switzerland being a little bit ahead.

Scotland was the best team in the second half after they decided to go all out as it was made or break for Steve Clark and his men.

The Tartan Army attacked Switzerland with much force but the Swiss led by Manchester City centre-back Manuel Akanji at the back resisted the force.

It ended 1-1 to the delight of Switzerland as they will need a draw against Germany in the final group game to progress.

Scotland on the other hand must beat Hungary to stand any chance to progress.
