Germany and Switzerland played out a 1-1 draw in their final Group A match of Euro 2024 at the Frankfurt Arena.

Here are the major talking points and stats from the big clash:

Neuer’s Euro legacy

German Manuel Neuer became the goalkeeper with the most appearances in the history of the European Championships after he was named in the starting lineup of the match between Germany and Switzerland being played at the Frankfurt Arena.

With 18 appearances in the Euros, Neuer set the record after overtaking Italy’s Gianluigi Buffon.

Germany’s consistent starting 11

For the first time in Euro history, Germany named an unchanged XI for three games in a row. Despite assuring round of 16 spot, Nagelsmann has opted to play his main players and not give any sub a chance in the starting lineup.

Andrich goal cancelled by VAR

Germany pushed high in numbers as Wirtz passed to Andrich who curled it from outside the box into the net.

Germans started celebrating however, the goal was turned down by VAR because Musiala had made a late tackle on Aebischer before the play.

Ndoye scores first goal for Switzerland

Dan Ndoye scored his career’s first international goal against Germany in the first half. He came close to scoring again moments later but just missed the target.

At 23 years and 242 days he also the second youngest goalscorer in the history of Switzerland in Euros.

Tah misses next game

Jonathan Tah was awarded a yellow card against Switzerland for a challenge on Breel Embolo. Tah received a yellow card in Germany’s opening match against Scotland as well and hence with two yellow cards to his name, he will miss the Round of 16 match.

Fullkrug scored stoppage time equaliser

Fullkrug scored the equaliser in the second minute to draw the game level. This goal meant Germany topped the Group A standings over Switzerland, which would have been top instead if it had won.
