Hungary vs. Switzerland: euro 2024

2

Hungary vs. Switzerland: Kwadwo Duah and Michel Aebischer’s goals in the first half put Switzerland on the road to a vital, hard-fought 3-1 victory over Hungary in Group A.

In the second half, Barnabás Varga gave Hungary hope with a goal back; nevertheless, Breel Embolo took advantage of a defensive blunder to seal the victory in stoppage time.

Despite conceding just seven goals in eight games, the Magyars qualified for Euro 2024 undefeated, putting on an extraordinarily careless defensive display.

As the game progressed, the team did better. Still, an experienced Swiss team prevailed after Varga’s goal gave Hungary some momentum. Attila Fiola’s mishandled header gave Embolo an excellent opportunity to lob the ball over goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi.

Switzerland now sits second in Group A, behind Germany, after Die Mannschaft’s decisive 5-1 victory over Scotland on Friday.
