Switzerland vs Germany LIVE!

Germany found a stoppage-time goal from substitute Niclas Fullkrug to draw 1-1 with Switzerland on Sunday and ensure the host nation finished top of Euro 2024 Group A.

Fullkrug rose high in a crowded penalty area to head into the far corner of the net past Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer from a cross by another substitute, David Raum.

Switzerland had impressed while protecting a 28th-minute goal from Dan Ndoye's clever volleyed shot.

The point for each team ensured Germany finished top and Switzerland second in Group A. Hungary took third place in the standings with an even later stoppage-time goal to beat Scotland 1-0 in Stuttgart.

Hosts win Group A after last-gasp leveller

22:41 , Marc Mayo

Switzerland came within minutes of beating Germany at Euro 2024 but Niclas Fullkrug scored a stoppage-time leveller which ensured the hosts won Group A.

Winger Dan Ndoye of Bologna, 23, scored what looked like being the game’s only goal when he volleyed past Manuel Neuer from Remo Freuler’s sumptuous first-half cross.

But Germany kept plugging away despite excellent Swiss defending and Julian Nagelsmann’s side earned a 1-1 draw in the 92nd minute as substitute David Raum crossed towards Fullkrug. The big striker did the rest, nodding back across goal and past Yann Sommer.

21:51 , Dom Smith

BUT..... BUT.... Substitute Fullkrug has equalised for Germany in the second minute of stoppage time, with a lovely header back across goal after Raum’s cross.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 91'

21:49 , Dom Smith

Four minutes added on here. Switzerland are so close now!

FT: Switzerland 1-1 Germany

21:54 , Dom Smith

Incredible drama at the end. Fullkrug’s header proves almost the last action of the match at Frankfurt’s Waldstadion.

It ends 1-1, so it’s Germany rather than Switzerland who end as Group A winners.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 82'

21:47 , Dom Smith

A fine, fine effort from Xhaka, who curls a lovely strike towards the top corner, BUT Neuer is there to claw it clear. Excellent save - and it needed to be.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 86'

21:44 , Dom Smith

Havertz hits the bar with a header which comes partly off his head and partly his shoulder.

He’s left cursing the miss. Switzerland look like winning this!

GOOOAAA... no.

21:43 , Dom Smith

The Swiss think they’ve made sure of their win as Vargas beats Neuer with a lovely finish, but it’s rightly chalked off for offside.

It stays 1-0.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 82'

21:41 , Dom Smith

Shot in frustration from Sane flies over after Kroos’s free-kick is punched half-clear by Sommer.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 81'

21:40 , Dom Smith

Switzerland absolutely camped near their box as they try to hold on to what would be a famous win.

Widmer earns a booking that will keep him out of the round of 16 as he hauls down Raum.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 76'

21:35 , Dom Smith

21-year-old pair Musiala and Wirtz make way as Sane and Fullkrug come on. Big risk by Nagelsmann but he needs to change something...!

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 75'

21:33 , Dom Smith

Switzerland energised since Yakin changed the front three. Duah’s shot from range is tepid and easily gathered by Neuer but the Swiss have raised their level in the last few minutes.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 70'

21:30 , Dom Smith

Huge chance Germany! Superb block from Akanji as Kimmich shoots from point-blank range.

It’s as valuable as a goal for Switzerland. Sensational intervention from Manchester City’s Akanji, who has had an excellent game.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 68'

21:27 , Dom Smith

Kroos’s free-kick is headed clear by Akanji.

Beier delivers back into the box but Havertz can only nod it over the bar. Germany’s 14th shot of the match.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 67'

21:25 , Dom Smith

Xhaka not happy as he’s shown a yellow card, but it was a poor challenge and his studs even nicked off Musiala’s shin. Booking indeed. Germany free-kick.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 65'

21:24 , Dom Smith

Triple change for Switzerland. Amdouni, Varagas and Duah come on for Rieder, Ndoye and Embolo.

Germany bring Beier of Hoffenheim on for Andrich.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 63'

21:23 , Dom Smith

Raum, who has never scored for Germany, has a swing from range and hits it beautifully, but the ball swings just over Sommer’s crossbar.

Switzerland definitely hanging on a little now, as Gundogan earns a corner from an aerial duel with Schar. Havertz leaps and heads over.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 61'

21:20 , Dom Smith

Switzerland so dangerous on the break, with Ndoye and Embolo looking to counter at ant opportunity.

First appearances of the tournament for Schlotterbeck and Raum as they replace Tah and Mittelstadt.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 55'

21:14 , Dom Smith

Kroos fires wide after patient build-up play by the losing side. Germany beginning to turn the screw.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 51'

21:10 , Dom Smith

Good effort by Musiala, but it’s right at Sommer who bats it clear.

Gundogan follows up but doesn’t have much time and the ball spins behind for a goal-kick.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 49'

21:07 , Dom Smith

Embolo enjoys a little run into the German box but is crowded out by three defenders and the attack ends there.

Good start to the second half by Switzerland.


21:05 , Dom Smith

Back underway in the second half in Frankfurt!

Half-time stats

20:56 , Dom Smith

Germany have dominated possession, seeing 69 per cent of it to Switzerland’s 31.

Seven shots for Germany, two for Switzerland - one of them golden!

And pass completion rate is 78 per cent for the Swiss but an impressive 91 per cent for Germany.

HT | Switzerland 1-0 Germany

20:48 , Dom Smith

Plenty of possession but not too much by way of end product from Germany, who trail to Yakin’s Switzerland at the break.

What a lovely goal it was too, as Freuler delivered and Ndoye slammed into the top corner with Neuer comfortably beaten.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 45+1'

20:47 , Dom Smith

Signs of frustration from Germany as we enter two minutes of first-half added time.

Kroos crosses over everyone who has queued up in the box, and Andrich is soon barking in his ear telling him what’s what.

Switzerland top of the group as it stands!

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 41'

20:43 , Dom Smith

Lovely turn from Musiala to beat two markers on the left. His cross is deep and meets Rudiger, but the header is wide.

In the next attack, Germany work it wide right to Havertz but the Arsenal man’s shooting boots desert him as he arrows well over the bar.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 39'

20:39 , Dom Smith

Stupid from Tah, who leaps into the air and wins the ball with his feet near Embolo’s head height as Embolo challenges him.

Needless booking for Tah, who is now suspended for Germany’s round of 16 game. Why?!

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 44'

20:44 , Dom Smith

Andrich the latest to have a pop but it’s nothing like the strike which beat Sommer and had Germany winning until VAR intervened. This time it is miles too high.

Switzerland 1-0 Germany | 34'

20:34 , Dom Smith

Ndoye was so close to being offside for that goal, but he just held his run.

Switzerland then threaten again as Ndoye strikes just wide of the target.

Germany looking a bit startled at the moment - behind for the first time in the tournament.


20:36 , Dom Smith

Decent celebration, that, from Ndoye.

20:30 , Dom Smith

Switzerland are into the lead in Frankfurt, as Ndoye scores his first goal for his country.

Freuler turns and crosses beautifully into the Bologna man, who hammers past Neuer for the opener!

Germany, as it stands, will NOT win Group A!

Switzerland 0-0 Germany | 25'

20:26 , Dom Smith

Rudiger makes a lot of it, but he’s clearly fouled by a late challenge from Ndoye, who is the first player into the referee’s book.

Switzerland 0-0 Germany | 23'

20:23 , Dom Smith

Musiala nicks Xhaka, who will take a free-kick in his own half all day long. Valuable chance for the Swiss to regroup after an eventful opening 20 minutes in which they’ve been under pressure.


20:19 , Dom Smith

Andrich thinks he has scored his first goal for Germany, but Orsato heads to the pitchside VAR screen and rightly rules it out for a foul in the build-up by Musiala.

Goalkeeper Sommer is a lucky man! He was beaten by Andrich’s long shot much too easily.

Switzerland 0-0 Germany | 13'

20:13 , Dom Smith

Havertz bundled over in the box, but Newcastle’s Schar didn’t know much about it and referee Orsato of Italy says nothing doing.

Switzerland 0-0 Germany | 9'

20:09 , Dom Smith

Germany have settled into this game nicely, dominating possession and with the dangerous Jamal Musiala - once an England youth international - beginning to drift into pockets.


20:01 , Dom Smith

Underway, then, as Switzerland take on hosts Germany in both sides’ final game in Group A!

Switzerland 0-0 Germany | 3'

20:04 , Dom Smith

Havertz has a free header from a Germany corner but Sommer gathers.

Switzerland win a corner up the other end, but it’s a horrendous delivery...

National anthems

19:57 , Dom Smith

The players are in fine voice at the Waldstadion in Frankfurt!

Kick off just over 5 minutes away now!

Xherdan Shaqiri benched

19:43 , Dom Smith

Xherdan Shaqiri, now 32, scored a sensational goal to earn Switzerland a 1-1 draw with Scotland last time out.

The ex-Stoke City man is now plying his trade in the US with Chicago Fire, and became the first-ever goalscorer at a Euros from a North American-based club.

But he is benched today by Murat Yakin, as Breel Embolo comes in. Embolo scored the third against Hungary in Switzerland’s opening game and has been working his way back from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Benches for both teams

19:27 , Dom Smith

Both Switzerland and Germany boasts strong options off the bench today. Here are both sides’ available substitutes in full:

Switzerland bench: Stergiou, Elvedi, Zakaria, Okafor, Steffen, Mvogo, Zuber, Zesiger, Sierro, Vargas, Duah, Kobel, Shaqiri, Jashari, Amdouni.

Germany bench: Raum, Gross, Fullkrug, Fuhrich, Baumann, Muller, Beier, Schlotterbeck, Anton, Sane, Henrichs, ter Stegen, Koch, Can, Undav.

Knockout round permutations...

19:16 , Dom Smith

The side that wins Group A - highly likely to be Germany - will play runners-up in England’s group in the round of 16. That currently looks set to be Denmark.

Meanwhile, the side that finishes second - most likely Switzerland - meet Croatia, Italy or Albania in the second round.

It would take a large goal swing tonight for Scotland to pip Switzerland - already on four points - into second place.

Adam Wharton hoping to become the next Toni Kroos

19:04 , Dom Smith

While the real Kroos is ready to face the Swiss from the start tonight, another man is hoping to emulate what the German brings to his national team.

Gareth Southgate said earlier this month that Crystal Palace’s Adam Wharton has what it takes to become like Kroos in midfield but for England.

Wharton was asked about Kroos yesterday and waxed lyrical about the Germany veteran.

"Even watching them, especially in the first game [against Scotland], I thought Kroos pretty much controlled the game, dropping deep, playing out and playing it forward to players they had in attack”, Wharton said. “That's where they caused a lot of damage.”

Nagelsmann sticking to a winning team

18:53 , Dom Smith

Nagelsmann has kept faith with Rudiger, Tah, Mittelstadt and Andrich, all of whom are one booking away from suspension. But he clearly feels it’s best to stick with a winning team.

Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz and Havertz has been the hottest front four in this tournament so far. Could be a tough night for the Swiss...

Germany starting line-up

Germany XI: Neuer; Kimmich, Rudiger, Tah, Mittelstadt; Andrich, Kroos; Musiala, Gundogan, Wirtz; Havertz

Switzerland XI: Sommer; Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Widmer, Rieder, Xhaka, Freuler, Aebischer; Ndoye, Embolo

Germany in peerless form

18:38 , Dom Smith

Have Germany been the best team at the Euros so far? Spain and Portugal have certainly run them close, but plenty of people feel the host nation have looked most impressive after the first two rounds of matches.

After thrashing Scotland 5-1 on opening night, they beat Hungary 2-0 in their second game and could wrap up the group on maximum points with victory over Switzerland tonight.

Nagelsmann fearful pitch could cause injuries

18:25 , Dom Smith

Tonight’s game takes place at Frankfurt’s Waldstadion, where England drew 1-1 with Denmark in Group C on Thursday.

The pitch was cutting up badly in that game, and Nagelsmann yesterday admitted he fears the same could be the case tonight.

“I hope that it holds up, but I have little hope”, he said. “The grass is simply not good — very greasy, very soft.

“It is like driving with summer tyres in the winter. After the NFL games [at the stadium], the grass no longer grew well. I am not so worried in terms of playing the game, but what worries me more is in terms of injuries.

“There are players such as Jude Bellingham that we have seen have had problems and risked some serious injury.

“If you slip, you really risk getting injured. But this is the situation, these are the starting conditions. We must handle them.”

Fans gathering in Frankfurt

18:14 , Dom Smith

Plenty of excitement ahead of the final round of fixtures in Group A, where Scotland face Hungary in the group’s other game.

Germany fans are out in droves in Frankfurt this evening, gathering at fan parks like this one near to the Waldstadion.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men can complete the group on maximum points tonight if they beat the Swiss.

Germany team news

18:02 , Dom Smith

Julian Nagelsmann has said he is not planning to rotate the Germany team to avoid the risk of losing players to suspension.

But Antonio Rudiger, Jonathan, Maximilian Mittelstadt and Robert Andrich one yellow card away from suspension, so changes are a possibility.

Switzerland team news

17:51 , Dom Smith

Fabian Schar broke his nose early on but played on through the pain in Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Scotland, which effectively secured Switzerland’s passage through to the round of 16.

Breel Embolo appeared off the bench and will likely start, having struggled with his fitness before the tournament but scored off the bench in the Swiss’s opening 3-1 win over Hungary.
