After their last-minute success against Scotland this Sunday at Euro 2024 (1-0), the players of the Hungarian team paid tribute to Barnabas Varga. The 29-year-old center forward was taken to hospital during the match, after suffering a violent collision with the opposing goalkeeper.

Big scare for Hungary. The victory against Scotland this Sunday at Euro 2024 (1-0) was marked by a worrying incident. A quarter of an hour from the end, Barnabas Varga, the Hungarian center forward, suffered a violent collision with Angus Gunn, the Scottish goalkeeper. On a cross from Dominik Szoboszlai, the 29-year-old striker fell heavily in the area. Totally KO. His partners immediately approached him, calling for help with large gestures.

Varga was taken care of for many minutes by the trainers, who spread out large sheets to hide him. Enough to fear a serious problem. The Ferencvaros player was finally evacuated on a stretcher to the applause of the Stuttgart public. Before being taken to hospital to undergo examinations. The Hungarian Federation announced in the evening that Barnabas Varga was in “stable condition”.

The whole team posed with their jerseys

At the end of the match, the entire Hungarian team gathered on the field to pose with their No. 19 jersey.

Captain Dominik Szoboszlai even put on his white tunic inside out when celebrating the victory with the Magyars supporters, also marked by the premature exit of the 1.81m right-hander, who was celebrating his fourteenth selection.

After scoring the winning goal at the end of added time (90th + 10), Kevin Csoboth, the Ujpest winger, also collected Barnabas Varga’s jersey to brandish it in front of the cameras. Hoping that his teammate recovers as quickly as possible from his mishap.

Thanks to its victory against Scotland, Hungary finished third in Group A. With three points on the clock and the hope of qualifying for the round of 16 by being one of the four best third-placed players in the group stage.
