Scotland – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Tartan Army" started their Euro qualification campaign brilliantly, securing their place in the tournament early alongside Spain. It’s not surprising that they relaxed afterward, finishing 2023 with just one point from their last two matches, coupled with friendly defeats to England and France.

In the spring, Steve Clarke’s men suffered "dry" defeats to both the Netherlands (0-4) and Northern Ireland. To boost their morale before the Euro, they decided to play a friendly against Gibraltar, where they managed a modest 2-0 win.

Finland – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Eagle-owls," unlike their Euro 2020 qualification, couldn’t replicate the surprise, showing results characteristic of a solid mid-tier team. They collected 18 points in 10 matches, but both Denmark and Slovakia earned 4 more points than them.

Their last hope was the Nations League path. However, in the first round in March, their hopes were crushed by Wales, who won the match 4-1. Now, they only have friendlies until the fall. They beat Estonia 2-1 in the spring. During the summer, they traveled to Portugal, where they conceded a goal within 15 minutes of the match starting.
