EM: Spätes Tor rettet Ungarn ein Remis gegen Island

Adam Szalai and Hungary still have a good chance of reaching the last 16 of this year’s European Championship. They drew 1-1 with Iceland on Saturday and now have four points to their name. Szalai came off the bench late on.

Hungary started the game strongly but were unable to create many chances due to Iceland’s defensive resoluteness. The match descended into a real tactical battle as both sides seemed unwilling to risk allowing chances. However, Iceland went into the break 1-0 up thanks to former Hoffenheim player Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty (40’).

The Hungarians pushed for an equaliser throughout the second half but the determined Iceland players held firm until a dangerous ball into the box clipped defender Sævarsson, who put through his own net.

Hungary face Portugal in their final group game on Wednesday, 22nd June (18:00 CEST).
