The Scotland national team suffered last-gasp agony in a 1-0 defeat against Hungary in their third and final Euro 2024 group-stage encounter.

It was hardly the prettiest of games with a series of rough challenges dictating much of the play throughout. And despite Scotland almost forcing a goal themselves in the 99th minute, a lethal counter-attack was capped off by a cool Kevin Csoboth finish in the dying second.

Scotland failed to register a shot on target in 100 minutes, but it was a sucker punch that nevertheless sunk Steve Clarke and his players' Euro 2024 dreams on the night. Here's how the Scotland players rated in Stuttgart.

Scotland vs Hungary player ratings as Scots exit Euro 2024

Angus Gunn 8

Took no chances when parrying an effort from range in the opening 10 minutes, but was otherwise untested during the first period. Commanded his box well in the second, and made a handful of top-class saves to keep the scoreline at 0-0 in the closing stages. Could do nothing for the goal.

Scott McKenna 7

In from the start for the injured Kieran Tierney and slotted in well. Paired well with Robertson and Hanley, and played with the confidence of a player keen to make his mark when given the chance.

Grant Hanley 7

Helped to build from the back and held Scotland's high defensive line in the opening half hour well. Likewise held that line during Hungary's counter-press, and threw himself into every challenge.

Jack Hendry 8

The defender's most confident performance of the competition so far. Covered well with a crucial tackle and clearance ahead of 20 minutes, and fearless throughout.

Andy Robertson 7

Not the most involved we've ever seen the Scotland captain over the course of his 88 minutes on the pitch, and struggled to make his presence felt as we've become so accustomed to in recent years.

Callum McGregor 7

Ran the midfield for the entirety of the first half while playing with the speed and fluidity that's defined his career at club level. Less prominent in the second period and, like Gilmour, struggled to penetrate with forward passing.

Billy Gilmour 7

Ever-lively in the attacking third while playing on the front foot and attempting to manipulate space. Struggled to force forward passes towards Adams, McGinn and McTominay, however, which took the shine off an otherwise solid performance.

Anthony Ralston 7

Appear to have put recent criticism behind him and played with his heart on his sleeve. A typically rugged but simple performance from the full-back.

Scott McTominay 7

Always looked to unsettle the Hungary backline and was equally adept in the air in his own box. Harshly booked in the early stages of the second half meaning that had Scotland qualified he'd have been suspended in the next round.

John McGinn 6

Drew the opposition around him at every turn, and felt the brunt of Hungary's aggressive counter-press in the first half. Far less involved in the second half in what will surely be considered a quiet tournament overall for the Aston Villa star.

Che Adams 6

Struggled to create at the top end of the pitch, but was once more starved of service. Committed two careless first half fouls in dangerous positions, however Hungary failed to capitalise. Energetic as ever, but too often with no results.


Lawrence Shankland

On for Che Adams with 15 minutes of normal time remaining. Stretched a tiring Hungary backline, but fought against the clock to leave his mark on the game.

Stuart Armstrong

On for John McGinn with 15 minutes to go, and was hugely unlucky not to be awarded a penalty when he got in front of centre-back Willie Orban inside the box.

Kenny McLean

On for Billy Gilmour with seven minutes remaining. Struggled to affect the game with so little time remaining.

Ryan Christie

Swapped places with Billy Gilmour with seven minutes left on the clock. Left exposed during Hungary's goal-scoring counter-attack, but can't be blamed at 2v1.

Lewis Morgan

On for captain Andy Robertson with two minutes of normal time remaining with little time to make an impact.
