What is wrong with my syntax, I can't understand what's wrong with my code, this is what it says: SyntaxError: missing before statement


var userChoice = prompt("Do you choose rock, paper or scissors?");
var computerChoice = Math.random();
if (computerChoice < 0.34) {
    computerChoice = "rock";
} else if(computerChoice <= 0.67) {
    computerChoice = "paper";
} else {
    computerChoice = "scissors";
} console.log("Computer: " + computerChoice);
var compare = function (choice1, choice2) {
if (choice1 === choice2) {
return "The result is a tie!";
}

else if(choice1 === "rock") {
    if(choice2 === "scissors") {
        return "rock wins";
    }
    else {
        return "paper wins";
    }
} else if(choice1 === "paper") {
    if (choice2 === "rock") {
    return "paper wins";
    } 
    else {
        return "scissors wins";
    }
} else if(choice1 === "scissors") {
    if(choice2 === "rock") {
        return "rock wins";
    }
    else (choice2 === "paper") {
        return "scissors wins";
    }
}
}

console.log(compare(userChoice,computerChoice))
