Germany’s dominant 5-1 victory over Scotland sparks Euro 2024 hopes

Germany kicked off their home European Championship with a resounding 5-1 victory over Scotland, reigniting hopes for a successful tournament.

Despite low pre-tournament expectations, the three-time European champions delivered an impressive performance. Goals from Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, and a Kai Havertz penalty secured a 3-0 lead by halftime, compounded by Scotland’s Ryan Porteous being sent off for a reckless challenge. Niclas Fullkrug added a fourth before Antonio Rudiger’s own goal briefly uplifted the Scots. Emre Can sealed the emphatic win with the final kick.

Commentators praised Germany’s high-pressure tactics and strategic prowess under Julian Nagelsmann. Former players noted Germany’s potential championship form, likening their pressing style to that of Manchester City. Nagelsmann expressed satisfaction with the team’s performance and their reaction to conceding a goal, highlighting their competitive spirit and readiness for the tournament.
