Scotland vs Norway Full Match Reports
Scotland concluded their UEFA Euro 2024 qualification campaign with a riveting 3-3 draw against Norway, and Mohamed Elyounoussi’s late equalizer extended the hosts’ winless streak to five games across all competitions.
Aron Dønnum embraced the challenge of dampening the Hampden Park celebration early on, displaying brilliant composure inside the box to drive a left-footed strike beyond Zander Clark in only the third minute. Julian Ryerson delivered a cross from the right to Jørgen Strand Larsen, who, in an unconventional manner, laid the ball off for Dønnum to finish the job.
However, the Toulouse forward’s fortune reversed less than 10 minutes later when he was penalized for handball while attempting to block Callum McGregor’s shot. Captain John McGinn demonstrated coolness from the spot, leveling the scores and sending Egil Selvik the wrong way. The joy was short-lived as Ryerson, once again, provided an enticing cross, and Strand Larsen redirected his close-range finish past Clark to restore the visitors’ lead.
Yet, this topsy-turvy contest took another turn when Scott McTominay’s corner took a nick off Leo Østigård and into the net, restoring parity once again. In this dead-rubber affair, Patrick Berg came close to scoring a third for Ståle Solbakken’s side with a free-kick that narrowly missed the post. Berg then set up Dønnum in the box for a potential second and Norway’s third before halftime, but Nathan Patterson made an excellent goal-saving block.
Patterson’s contribution proved crucial as Steve Clarke’s men took the lead for the first time just shy of the hour mark. Stuart Armstrong displayed grit and determination to navigate a tight spot near the corner flag, executed a neat one-two with McGinn, and fired a clinical strike past Selvik. While it seemed Clarke’s men had secured all three points, they failed to deal with another Ryerson cross, and Elyounoussi capitalized to nod home unmarked at the far post. This was not the ideal ending for the Tartan Army, missing out on a perfect home record in qualifying. However, the assurance of their place in the draw for next year’s finals on December 2 serves as adequate consolation.
Man of the Match: John McGinn (Scotland).
