Arsenal star ruled out of Euro 2024 with hamstring injury

Arsenal star Kieran Tierney has been ruled out of 2024 European Championship after picking up a hamstring injury during Scotland’s 1-1 draw with Switzerland. 

The 27-year-old went down after competing for the ball with Dan Ndoye on the hour mark, and he was later carried off on a stretcher. 

The severity of the injury is unknown at this point, but he has reportedly left Scotland’s camp to have his injury assessed by Arsenal. 

Manager Steve Clarke said after the match (per Daily Mail): “Yeah, [he’s] definitely out. It looks pretty bad. Obviously we have to assess it but Kieran won’t make the next game.

“You have to feel for Kieran. He’s got himself in great shape and is a top player for us. He does ever so well.

“It’s a shame, but someone else has got to step in and step up to the mark.”

Tierney has become the latest player to join Scotland’s lengthy list of absentees as they are already without Aaron Hickey, Lewis Ferguson, Lyndon Dykes, Nathan Patterson, Jacob Brown and Ben Doak. 

The Tartan Army made a horrible start to their Euro 2024 campaign as they fell to a humiliating 5-1 defeat against Germany last week. 

Florian Wirtz, Jamal Musiala, Kai Havertz, Niclas Fullkrug and Emre Can all earned their names on the scoresheet as the hosts completely dominated the Allianz Arena encounter. 

However, Scotland kept their European Championship hopes alive by holding Switzerland to a credible 1-1 draw in their second group game, with Xherdan Shaqiri cancelling out Scott McTominay’s opener.  

Steve Clarke’s side will now lock horns with Hungary on Sunday in their final group match knowing victory will likely confirm their place in the knockouts.
