The Hungarian national football team overcame a deficit in the second half to defeat the visiting Montenegrin team 3-1 in Sunday’s European Championship qualifying match, so it finished first in the group and can look forward to the draw for next year’s continental competition in Hamburg on December 2nd.
Although the guests took the lead in the 36th minute with Slobodan Rubezic’s header, the Hungarian team captain Dominik Szoboszlai’s double in the 68th minute turned the situation around for Marco Rossi’s students. The final result was set by Ádám Nagy in extra time. Marco Rossi also introduced a new player, replacing Soma Sukhodovski in the last moments.
Thanks to the success achieved in the packed Puskás Arena, the national team has not found a winner in 12 meetings – the last time they had such a good streak was between March 2000 and April 2001 – and after 1976, they again closed a calendar year undefeated.
