The match started off entertaining, with both teams looking to end their possessions with shots and a first warning of Kai Havertzwhich took advantage of an overconfidence of Willi Orban marking and shot from close range, an action saved by Peter Gulacsi (eleven).

The ‘Mannschaft’ detected the defender’s lack of strength, and in an action between Ilkay Gundogan and Orban, the RB Leipzig defender went to the ground, without Gulacsi being able to catch the ball either. With the rival defense completely sold out, Gundogan assisted Jamal Musiala (22) to open the scoring, amid protests from the Hungarian players, who claimed a foul on Orban.

Germany took the warning seriously and tried to get hold of the ball, sneaking around Gulacsi’s goal, but just before the break, in a new set-piece action, Hungary thought they had established the tie, but it was disallowed for offside.

The first minutes of the second half were calm and worry-free for the goalkeepers, until Hungary broke the non-aggression pact with a header from Bernabás Varga (60) that went wide.

The hosts would not take long to respond. A combination on the front of the Hungarian area, in which he was involved again Musiala, He freed Maximilian Mittelstadt on the left. The Stuttgart winger quickly entered the area and, with the rival defense confused, found a simple assist for Gundogan (67).


The second goal definitively broke the game in favor of a ‘Mannschaft’, which began to multiply the chances against a Hungarian team that seemed to give up definitively, despite the constant and noisy support of its fans and one last action by Orban, saved on the goal line by Joshua Kimmich (90+5).

Germany has six points in two days and will close the group stage on June 23 against Switzerland, a team that defeated Hungary on the first day of group A (3-1).
