Euro 2024: UEFA bans Scotland defender Porteous for two games

Euro 2024: UEFA bans Scotland defender Porteous for two game

UEFA confirmed on Monday that Scotland's Ryan Porteous will miss the Tartan Army's two remaining group games at Euro 2024 after his red card ban was extended.

The Watford defender, 25, was sent off late in the first half of Friday's opening game of the tournament as they suffered a 5-1 defeat by Germany, conceding a penalty with his ugly challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.

After reviewing the incident, UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body added an extra match to the suspension for "serious rough play".

Scotland meets Switzerland on Wednesday and ends the group phase against Hungary on Sunday, meaning he will not be part of the group stages and perhaps out of the tournament altogether if they fail to win their next game.

Meanwhile, the Scottish FA has been fined €5,625 (£4,753) for the "throwing of objects" by Scotland fans during the heavy loss at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
