HUNGARY EARNED A shock 2-0 win over 10-man Austria in today’s first Euro 2016 encounter.

Adam Szalai’s first goal for 18 months put the underdogs ahead before Aleksandar Dragovic received a second booking for fouling Tamas Kadar.

Zoltan Stieber then completed the victory on 87 minutes, as he dinked the ball over Robert Almer following a swift Hungarian counter-attack.
