Germany, the hosts of Euro 2024, launched their campaign for a historic fourth continental championship with a commanding 5-1 victory against a 10-man Scotland team on Friday. Florian Wirtz and Jamal Musiala struck within the first 20 minutes in Munich, and Kai Havertz converted a penalty before the break after Ryan Porteous received a red card for a reckless tackle on Ilkay Gundogan. In the second half, substitutes Niclas Fuellkrug and Emre Can also found the net for Germany, sandwiching a late consolation goal for Scotland scored by Antonio Ruediger into his own net.
