Underdog hero Hungary are rather inexperienced in major football tournaments and hence their chances were not too good against Austria…
Hungary failed to qualify for the Euro finals in the past 44 years and they played their last World Cup game in 1986. With those stats and records ahead, we were not supposed to give any chances to underdog hero Hungary: they should have lost the game rather easily against the likes of Bayern Munich’s David Alaba and all the other Bundesliga and Premier League players in Austria.
And that’s exactly how the game started: David Alaba could have scored a great goal as early as the 40th second. His shot hit the post, however. If it goes in, we might have seen a different game and what happened next, lead to incredible sports scores news with some terrific game from the Hungarian Euro 2016 squad.
Bernd Strock’s men put out a terrific team performance. After his shot on goal, David Alaba hardly even touched the ball because the Hungarian football tactics worked perfectly. In fact, they created lots of chances to score and could have won by even better live score results. Austria’s completely merited red card didn’t help Austria’s chances either.
Hungary’s number 9, Ádám Szalai, a creature of La Fábrica of Real Madrid took the lead for Hungary in the 61th minute at the end of a beautiful combination. That goal perfectly shows what the expression “joga bonito” means. Later on, Austria tried to open up in hopes of equalizing, but they couldn’t really create any serious danger. Their only result was the fact that they allowed underdog hero Hungary to hit them on a counter attack in the end of the game: Zoltán Stieber decided the match with a beautiful finish over the keeper’s head. Terrific skills, such an elegant move!
Underdog hero Hungary has not celebrated such a heroic victory in 44 years, that’s one of the most important gambling facts lately at Euro 2016. and they can enjoy every second of being up on the football map again. The players celebrated together with Hungarian football fans in the field, but that’s not even the best: Hungary’s capital Budapest went mad after the game finished: thousands of people went out to the streets, and celebrated as if they had won the entire tournaments. Even public transport had to cancel its buses and trams because singing and cheering football fans took over the main streets and meeting points in the city center.
Now underdog hero Hungary are looking forward to see how they can perform in their remaining games. Their next one will be on Saturday against Iceland who tied 1-1 versus Portugal. It will be another interesting games from both sides’ aspects. Even a draw would mean definite qualification to the top 16 for Hungary, but a win could give them even better odds for winning Group F. That would be something! I’m really curious what Cristiano Ronaldo and his team has to say about that one…
