Hungary vs Switzerland live: Euro 2024 Result and final score



Hungary vs Switzerland live: Euro 2024 Result and final score

Allianz Arena erupts as Germany score first goal of Euro 2024

Switzerland edged out Hungary to secure the ideal start to Euro 2024 in Group A with a 3-1 victory. They join Germany at the top of the group after the hosts thrashed Scotland 5-1 in the tournament opener last night.

And goals from Kwadwo Duah and Michel Aebischer has the Swiss in control at the break. But after Dominik Szoboszlai set up Barnabas Varga to halve the deficit, Switzerland were left hanging on. But Breel Embolo, returning from an injury-hit season, settled the contest with a delightful, chipped finish.

Earlier, Duah opened the scoring in just his second game for Switzerland, shooting low past goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi off a pass from Aebischer. Aebischer made it 2-0 just before halftime, sidestepping away from Attila Fiola to find space on the edge of the box to hit a curling low shot past Gulacsi.

Varga’s diving header in the 66th off Dominik Szoboszlai’s cross brought celebrations for Hungary as some of its black T-shirt-wearing hardcore fans lit flares. Hungary kept Switzerland under pressure after that but couldn’t find a second goal. Switzerland is second in Group A after host nation Germany beat Scotland 5-1 on Friday in the tournament opener. Hungary had its first loss in a competitive game since September 2022.

Relive all the action from Hungary vs Switzerland below, plus the latest from Spain v Croatia:


Italy recover from 23 seconds of madness to find themselves again

On a wild night in Dortmund, the Azzuri showed their mettle and refound their class after a chaotic first minute of a famous match at Euro 2024

Albania stunned Italy with the fastest goal in Euros history, coming after just 23 seconds, as Federico Dimarco left his throw-in short and Alessandro Bastoni melted into the ground and then before anyone could understand what was happening Nedim Bajrami had thumped a strike inside Gianluigi Donnarumma’s near post. Bajrami raced away, falling into the embrace of a stadium losing its head.

Italy trudged back to halfway and in that moment it seemed the latest twist in the cycle of turmoil that has followed the Azzurri since they defeated England on penalties to win the Euros. Luciano Spalletti, parachuted into the job less than a year ago after the European champions failed to qualify for the World Cup under Roberto Mancini, may have watched on and wondered what he had got himself into after quitting his sabbatical at his Tuscan farm.

But what followed was a different story, one not of Albania resistance, but of Italy discovering themselves again. Italy have not acted like champions since that night at Wembley but here were the first embers of something familiar. Just as they did in the Euro 2020 final against England after conceding an early goal, Italy assumed control and shut down the narrative. After turning the game around by half-time, the holders ensured the second was a non-event.  Until Rey Manaj chested down a long punt forward and forced Donnarumma into a vital touch to send the ball narrowly wide in the 90th minute, Albania had not offered a hint of threat since Bajrami had the holders rocking.

Euro 2024 results so far

Ahead of another enthralling day of Euro 2024 action tomorrow, here’s a reminder of the results so far.

Recap: Spain put in impressive performance to ease past Croatia

A new Spain, in more ways than one. As Lamine Yamal, who was not even a year old when they won Euro 2008, became first the youngest footballer to play in a European Championships and then, before half-time, the youngest to set up a goal in one, Luis de la Fuente’s side made a break with the past.

Nor, really, was it Croatia as we have come to know them: the great survivors, the tournament team whose powers of endurance have carried them deep into World Cups, were strangely supine. It was the Croatia of old.

Recap: Switzerland open their campaign with a 3-1 win over Hungary

Kwadwo Duah’s maiden goal for Switzerland helped kick off their Euro 2024 campaign with a 3-1 victory over Hungary at Cologne Stadium.

The 27-year-old had played just 45 minutes for the Swiss senior side, and had to wait for VAR to confirm his milestone moment after he found the back of the net 12 minutes into the Group A contest.

Michel Aebischer, who assisted the opener, made it two on the stroke of half-time with his own first international goal, while Barnabas Varga’s second-half header denied Murat Yakin’s men a clean sheet after the break.

Substitute Breel Embolo sealed victory with a cushioned lob after a poor defensive header in added time.

Group B

Here’s how the Group B table looks after the first round of fixtures. Remember that the best third-placed teams will qualify, so goal difference will likely be vital in some cases.

1 – Spain – 3 points, GD +3

2 – Italy – 3 points, GD +1

3 – Albania – 0 points, GD -1

4 – Croatia – 0 points, GD -3

Euro 2024: Italy 2-1 Albania

Albania have what looks to be one last attack, but Mitaj sweeps a half-cross, half-shot past the post.

And that’s it! Italy begin their defence of the Euros with a win that was more comfortable than the scoreline suggests.
