  • Hungary held favourites France to a 1-1 draw after a thrilling game in Budapest 
  • Attila Fiola gave Hungary a shock lead just before half-time against run of play
  • Antoine Griezmann levelled midway through the second half after goal kick  
  • France piled on incessant pressure late on but couldn’t force their way through 

Hungary earned a vital point against World Cup Champions France in Budapest.

The ‘underdogs’ took a surprising lead over the tournament’s favorites in stoppage time of the first half.

Fiola got himself in behind Pavard and Raphaël Varane to coolly slot home past Hugo Lloris at the near post, and send the fans into a frenzy.

Le Bleus had to respond after the break but struggled for attacking fluency against a stubborn defensive effort.

They eventually levelled the game through route one football with Lloris launching a ball into the Hungary box for Mbappé to seize upon.

The PSG star squared the ball with a botched clearance from Willi Orbán helping it towards Antoine Griezmann.

Didier Deschamps will be frustrated with dropping points heading into a matchday three showdown with Portugal, while Hungary have given themselves an unlikely chance to progress should they beat Germany in their final group game.
