Not the result Scotland wanted

Scotland are currently trailing 5-0 at the Allianz Arena.

That means they need to turn things around in the next two matches against Switzerland and Hungary. The Swiss will be tricky opponents, but another defeat could see the Scots crash out of the European Championship.

United midfielder Scott McTominay has been quiet throughout the game.
