Scotland at Euros 'on merit', says Lewis Ferguson before Switzerland match

Lewis Ferguson insists Scotland are “good enough” to be at Euro 2024, despite Friday’s opening 5-1 defeat by Germany.

The Scots have come under severe criticism since the humbling in Munich and aare in Cologne for their second game against Switzerland on Wednesday evening.

Ferguson missed out on the tournament after sustaining an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury.

“They can find the belief from the quality and the mentality we’ve got in the squad,” the midfielder, 24, told BBC Sport.

“We’re there on merit. We’re there because we’re good enough to be there. We showed that in the qualification. We showed we’re a good team. We can go and compete against these teams.

“With the quality we know we have in the squad, the group have got a good mentality. It’s so important for us that we go and get something from the Switzerland game. I believe we’ve got the quality to go and hurt them.”
