Fans say Scotland were ‘robbed’ after dramatic defeat against Hungary ends Euro 2024 dream

Fans say Scotland were ‘robbed’ after dramatic defeat against Hungary ends Euro 2024 dream

Scotland are out of Euro 2024.

Scotland will now head home after their Euro 2024 dreams were shattered by Hungary.

Steve Calrke’s men got off to the worst possible start on matchday one when they were thrashed 5-1 by host nation Germany.

In the second match, it was a much-improved display as they held on for a 1-1 draw against Switzerland.

On Sunday night, Scotland arrived at the MHPArena knowing they realistically needed a win to have the best chance of advancing into the next round.

Scotland had most of the ball in the first half but largely failed to make Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi work.

In the the second half, Scotland again dominated possession without making any big chances.

Deep into stoppage time, Hungary scored on a counter attack with Kevin Csoboth finishing off a fine move.

Scotland players wer left crestfallen as their Euro 2024 dreams turned into a nightmare.

On the back of the defeat, Scotland finished bottom of Group A on just one point.


Reacting on social media, fans felt the Scots were robbed after a penalty deicison went against them.

Second half substitute Stuart Armstrong collided with Hungarian defender Willi Orban inside the penalty area but the referee waved the Scottish appeal away.

One fan said: “Scotland have been robbed here, how on earth is that not a penalty…”

Another tweeted: “Scotland have just been robbed of the clearest penalty you'll see these Euros.”

A third fan added: “Scotland absolutely robbed of a penalty - ludicrous decision.”

Speaking after the match, former England striker Alan Shearer said: “From a Scotland point of view, it was through no lack of effort, but the reality is a lack of quality has cost them. Particularly in forward positions.

“They were very rarely a threat. We were hoping rather than expecting. What I would say is the penalty decision was terrible. For me it was a penalty all day.”
