Adams helps battling Scotland to vital point


Southampton's Ché Adams played 91 minutes of Scotland's 1-1 draw with Switzerland in Group A on Wednesday night, keeping their European Championships dream alive with one game to go.

It was a game of high stakes for both sides; a win securing progression for Switzerland and anything but defeat keeping Steve Clarke's side in the hunt of the same destination.

Adams started the game at RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne, Stuart Armstrong named amongst the substitutes.

The Tartan Army were given the perfect start via Scott McTominay's deflected strike on 13 minutes.

It was followed before the break by a stunning first-time effort from Xherdan Shaqiri, who became the first European to score in each of the last six major tournaments.

The second half was a tense affair where both countries had chances to nick a winner, however it was a-point-a-piece with one game of the group stages remaining.

Whilst a second place finish in Group A looks unlikely, a win on the final fixture puts the Scots right in the mix for a place in the next round as the best third-place finisher.

For Clarke's side it all comes down to the meeting with Hungary on Sunday (8pm BST).
