France Struggle To Draw Against Hungary Through Griezmann

France Draw Hungary Griezmann

Hungary shocked France in the Euro 2020 as they held the world champions to a 1-1 draw at the Puskas Arena.

Marco Rossi’s side had remarkably taken the lead on the stroke of half time through Attila Fiola, but this was cancelled out by Antoine Griezmann’s second half strike.

France saw two glorious opportunities to take the lead go begging in the first half, with Kylian Mbappe at the heart of the action.

Despite the world champions’ domination, it was Hungary who took a shock lead in second half stoppage time.

Fiola rode the lunging challenge of Raphael Varane, burst into the box and slotted calmly past Hugo Lloris.

The spirited hosts continued to frustrate France, but their resolve was finally broken after 66 minutes.

Hugo Lloris’s long ball caused chaos in the Hungary backline, Mbappe made a nuisance of himself and his low cross was powered home by Griezmann.
