Euro 2024: Scotland rated worst team in round one, England’s Jude Bellingham with best individual performance so far | Football News

Scotland produced the worst team performance of the opening round of games, with their players averaging just 3.8 out of 10 in the player ratings by readers.

The miserable opening night thrashing by Germany, which saw Steve Clarke’s side battered 5-1 by the hosts, has left Scotland with it all to do ahead of their second Group A match against Switzerland on Wednesday.

Ryan Porteous was sent off just before half-time against Germany and has been suspended for both that Switzerland game and the final pool match against Hungary. His nightmare Euro 2024 start saw him handed a rating of just 2.9 – the worst mark out of the players to appear so far in the tournament.

It was a painful evening for Sky Sports’ Kris Boyd as he watched Scotland concede five goals to Germany in their Euro 2024 opener

Unsurprisingly Germany’s demolition job saw their players garner a high-ranking average mark of the championships to date, with 6.6 being the average grade given out to their players.

That was a long way off the 7.9 Slovakia’s players averaged for their shock win over Belgium but Germany’s score does include Jamal Musiala’s 8.2 – which is the second-highest individual score from the opening fixtures.

Taking top spot is England’s match-winner against Serbia, Jude Bellingham, who scored 8.3 on average. That put him head and shoulders above his team-mates, who averaged 6.3 for their efforts – the eighth-best team score so far.

Notably in the England team, Phil Foden was the lowest scorer. The Premier League player of the season was given a 4.9 by our readers for his ineffective display from the left side of the attack.
