Euro 2024: Late Fullkrug Header Salvages 1-1 Draw for Germany Against Switzerland

In a thrilling Group A encounter at Euro 2024, Germany staged a dramatic comeback to secure a 1-1 draw against Switzerland, clinching the top spot in their group. The match, which kept fans on the edge of their seats, saw both teams battling fiercely for supremacy.

Switzerland initially took the lead with Ndoye's close-range volley just before halftime, capitalizing on Andrich's earlier disallowed goal due to a foul in the build-up. The Swiss defense held firm against Germany's attacks, with Vargas appearing to extend their lead with a well-taken finish late in the game, only for it to be ruled offside.

However, Germany's persistence paid off deep into stoppage time when Fullkrug rose highest to head home Raum's cross, equalizing for the hosts and ensuring they finish first in Group A. Despite statistical dominance in expected goals (xG) throughout the game (1.70 to 0.60), Germany had to rely on a late surge to secure the vital point.

With this result, Germany now awaits the outcome of Group C to determine their next opponent, while Switzerland prepares to face one of Croatia, Albania, or Italy in their upcoming fixture. The match showcased the competitive spirit of both teams and sets the stage for an exciting knockout phase in Euro 2024.
