Adams and Armstrong feature as Scotland suffer heartbreaking exit


Ché Adams started his third successive game whilst Stuart Armstrong gained his first minutes of EURO 2024 as Scotland were defeated at the death by Hungary.

It was a tense affair in Stuttgart, both sides aware the only necessary result as far as progression was concerned was three points.

With little to settle the two sides during the first half there was a moment of concern in the 70th minute; Scottish keeper Angus Gunn colliding with Hungary forward Barnabás Varga mid-air. The striker was treated on the field for five minutes before being stretchered off.

After play resumed Adams was substituted, whilst Armstrong gained his first minutes of the competition.

The midfielder was immediately involved, played through by Manchester United's Scott McTominay into the box before being taken down. Somehow no penalty was given.

As the game entered ten minutes of stoppage time both nations had chances, but the decisive Hungary break came in the final minute of those added.

Kevin Csoboth of Hungarian club Újpest finished first time from the edge of the box after a swift counter attack to send Scotland home.
