Germany, Switzerland & Hungary all win Tuesday friendlies

Germany celebrate

We know Scotland fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Northern Ireland at Hampden on Tuesday, but how did their Euro 2024 group-stage opponents fare?

Germany backed up their impressive 2-0 win over France with a 2-1 triumph over the Netherlands.

The Dutch showed how clinical they can be in front of goal against Scotland last week, and they hit the front after just four minutes in Frankfurt through PSV midfielder Joey Veerman.

However, Maximilian Mittelstadt equalised for the hosts before Dortmund striker Niclas Fullkrug scored an 85th-minute winner.

In Dublin, former Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri's free-kick guided Switzerland to a 1-0 win over the Republic of Ireland, while there was also victory for Hungary, who beat Kosovo 2-0 in Budapest.

Liverpool midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai opened the scoring with a stunning free-kick, and is unquestionably the star man for Scotland's final Group A opponents.
