Hungary slows France down

France could not go from 1-1 against Hungary in a match in which they enjoyed countless occasions but in which they were unable to overcome the local wall. Fiola advanced to the Cinderella of the group but they could not resist and Antoine Griezmann managed to score the final tying goal.

The Ferenc Puskas stadium, where there was no room for a pin, hosted a very important match in the group of death. Hungary needed to get something to aspire to surprise, while the French, world champions, were looking for victory to be able to mathematically certify their pass to the round of 16 of this European Championship.

For this Didier Deschamps surprised little. The only novelty with respect to the eleven that beat Germany a few days ago was the entry of Digne by Lucas Hernández , Therefore, above was Griezmann playing with the duo that any Madrid player dreams of seeing in his team: Mbappé and Benzema . And it is normal that every day they see them combine with Les Blues they sigh because Florentino Pérez brings them together at the Santiago Bernabéu.

However, it was Hungary that came out firmly to the game and for the first ten minutes they were eager to strike. Pavard suffered that time and took a yellow card that would condition the rest of the game. Of course, from minute 10 France became a real roller. The first that the Gauls failed was with a Griezmann who missed a very clear chance after picking up a rebound after a shot from Benzema . Luckily, for Macon, the lineman pointed out of the game.

After this they would lack fingers on the hands to count the opportunities available to those of Deschamps. Mbappé , was not fine with two heads that he had from the penalty spot. Nor did Benzema hit the mark to culminate an action in which Griezmann gave Kylian a pass into the hole and the PSG player left it as a spur to the former Lyon player.

In addition to the three above, Kante and Digne were also contributing a lot to a team that overwhelmed but failed to score. Mbappé had another in which in one square meter he left three rivals but his shot crossed him too much. The minutes passed and the goal did not come. Extra time was reached and a perfect counter from the Hungarians allowed the local team to go 1-0 at halftime.

It was the work of Fiola , who threw a wall with Sallai, and beat Pavard to stand hand in hand with Lloris and beat him for the short stick. Total madness in Ferenc Puskas and in the Hungarian team , who went to intermission knowing that the second half could be hell given the offensive attitude of the French. They went out in search of a tie and as the minutes passed, Deschamps wanted to go all out, giving Dembélé entry and removing Rabiot from the field.

Griezmann saves a point

In his first action on the green, he forced the rival goalkeeper to stretch to avoid the tying goal. And it is that the rear of Hungary and its goalkeeper, Gulacsi , reduced as they could, encouraged by more than 60,000 fans, each attempt by the French team. Above, they dared to go against it and created serious danger for Lloris , but France is a lot of France and that is why it is the world champion team. After the hour of play, Mbappé managed to put a ball to the penalty spot, Orban cut badly and left the leather dead for Griezmann to burst the ball and put it 1-1.

The Barcelona footballer is another story. It means putting on the France shirt and shining again in attack and defensively. In addition, the goal allowed him to tie with Shearer as the third highest scorer in the history of the European Championship. Griezmann , had drawn, but they had to try to complete that comeback, or endure it, because after the goal of the Little Prince, Hungary did not collapse.

Benzema left the field with a quarter of an hour to go for Giroud to enter, but the one who put Hungary in trouble again was the usual Mbappé. Great whiplash from the PSG striker and even better response from Gulacsi . The local team was closing in and seemed to accept the draw as good as the fans squeezed. With four minutes to go Dembélé left the field – half an hour after entering – and jumped to the green Lemar , but not even with the Atlético Francia footballer was he able to make the second that gave him victory.
