Scotland 2-2 Finland

Scotland blew two-goal lead to draw with Finland

2024/06/07 22:19

Scotland's final warm-up game ahead of Euro 2024 ended in a draw, with Finland holding them to a 2-2 stalemate at Hampden Park.

The first half saw few opportunities, highlighted by Kieran Tierney's well-timed sliding tackle to deny Teemu Pukki early in the game.

The Scots managed to break the deadlock in the 54th minute when Arttu Hoskonen inadvertently turned Andrew Robertson's cross into his own net.

Robertson turned provider again just four minutes later, delivering a deep cross to Lawrence Shankland who headed powerfully past the goalkeeper.

However, Finland pulled one back in the 72nd minute when Benjamin Kallman, left unmarked, nodded in Oliver Antman's cross.

With five minutes remaining, the visitors secured a draw as Kallman calmly converted from the penalty spot after Craig Gordon fouled Tomas Galvez.

As a Scottish football fan, I'm disappointed with the draw against Finland. We had a strong start with Tierney's tackle and Robertson's assist, but our defense faltered with Kallman's unmarked header and Gordon's foul. We need to tighten up before Euro 2024.

Great to see the Scots getting some good practice in before Euro 2024! Tough game against Finland but glad to see our defense holding strong with Tierney's tackle. And what a finish by Shankland, hope he keeps that form in the tournament. But we need to work on our marking, can't afford to leave Kallman unmarked in the box. Overall, a decent result but definitely room for improvement.

As a Scotland fan, I have to say I'm disappointed with the draw against Finland. We had a strong start with Tierney's tackle, but we couldn't maintain momentum. Good to see Robertson and Shankland's goal, but we need to tighten up our defense. Let's hope for a better performance in Euro 2024!

As a Scottish football fan, I'm disappointed to see our final warm-up game ahead of Euro 2024 end in a draw. We had a good start with Kieran Tierney's excellent tackle, but it's frustrating to see Finland equalize and then take the lead with an own goal and a penalty. We'll have to tighten up our defense before the tournament begins.
