Hungary vs France LIVE: Euro 2020 latest score, goals and updates from fixture today



Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Follow all the action as Hungary host France in Euro 2020’s Group F this afternoon.

Hungary put up a valiant performance against Portugal in their opening game and can consider themselves bitterly unlucky not to have secured a point, having kept the defending champions at bay for 84 minutes only for a wicked deflection to finally break the deadlock. Cristiano Ronaldo’s late double ultimately rendered the scoreline a commanding 3-0 defeat, but that by no means reflected the fight Hungary had showed.

Nevertheless, it means Hungary must secure at least a point to keep their faint hopes alive of reaching the knockout stages, and that will be a serious struggle against world champions France. Didier Deschamps’ side were electric in their opening victory over Germany, with Mats Hummels’ own goal – made possible by a brilliant Paul Pogba pass – ensuring Les Bleus of all three points. For Hungary, a front three of Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappe and Antonio Griezmann may prove impossible to subdue as France aim to secure their place in the last 16. Follow all the action below:

Euro 2020: Hungary 1-0 France

You do feel this is going to be a very long half for Hungary if they are going to hold on for this famous win.

Digne flicks the ball onto Mbappe who in turn tries to find Benzema but there’s too much on it and Gulacsi can claim.

Second half almost upon us. Can the French turn this around?

Have just seen a replay of Fiola’s celebration and there is a brilliant moment when he jumps into a cordoned off area and bangs the table of a reporter before screaming in her face. She is amusingly stunned before then giving Fiola a belated celebration. Amazing.

That’s the break. Absolutely astonishing scenes at the end of the half as Fiola gives Hungary the lead over the world champions.

The goalscorer punches the air as Michael Oliver brings the half to an end and the crowd are going MAD!

Could we be witnessing an all-time great shock at the European Championships?

GOAL! Hungary 1-0 France (Fiola) ⚽️

Where has that come from?! Fiola escapes down the left-hand side as all of a sudden the French are all at sea. He drives with pace into the penalty area and coolly slots the ball into the bottom corner beyond Hugo Lloris!

Euro 2020: Hungary 0-0 France

44 mins: Benzema scurries in behind and looks to cut the ball back but his delivery bounces back off him and out for a goal kick. Been a frustrating 45 minutes for the France number 19.

Kleinheisler brings the ball away for Hungary and drives into the France half – the first attack they’ve had since the opening few minutes. He plays it left to Fiola and he cuts inside before unleashing a shot which hits his teammate Sallai and bounces away. Unlucky.

Euro 2020: Hungary 0-0 France

41 mins: France are pressing and probing for an opener. You still feel they have many more gears they can go through if they want to.

Another bitey foul from Hungary, this time it’s Fiola on Pogba. France on the receiving end of a lot of aggressive challenges so far.

Kleinheisler relieves the pressure again for Hungary as he earns his side a throw-in. But what happens? France win it back instantly. This pressure is going to tell sooner or later.
