Lyndon Dykes says Scotland are confident that they can make history by qualifying for the Euro 2024 last 16. 

Dykes was ruled out the tournament because of injury, but he's still remained among the Scotland camp in Germany.

And if the national team can defeat or, at worst, draw with Hungary tonight then they will be in a strong position to qualify for the knockout stages. 

They would become the first Scotland team to manage such feat, and Dykes feels the performance against Switzerland on Wednesday showed that they were back to their best. 

"They definitely can do it," the Queens Park Rangers striker told BBC 5 Live. "The reaction was really good to see [on Wednesday]. The boys turned up, played very well. Hopefully they get the result [tonight].

"It's always a tough role up there. Sometimes you don't get a lot of chances. But it's a team effort, we all stick together and that's how we win games. 

"The players feel really good. There are smiles on the faces, the boys are confident. The second game they showed they were back to their best. Everyone will just be buzzing to get out there."

On having to watch the showpiece event from the sidelines, Dykes added: "It was really tough at the start, I had been waiting on this all season. It was devastating. But I decided to come out with the boys to have a bit of fun with them. Once the game gets going, I'm just a fan."
