HUNGARY HAVE QUALIFIED for Euro 2020 after coming from behind to beat Iceland 2-1 in a dramatic play-off final in Budapest tonight.

Iceland had led for most of the game after Gylfi Sigurdsson’s early free-kick slipped through the grasp of home goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi, but Loic Nego equalised in the 88th minute before Dominik Szoboszlai scored an injury-time winner.

The Hungarians will go into Group F with World Cup holders France, Germany and reigning European champions Portugal.

They will play two group games at home in Budapest.
