Hungary hold France to 1-1 draw at Euro 2020

Antoine Griezmann scored midway through the second half to give France a 1-1 draw with Hungary and avoid the biggest upset of the European Championship.

Hungary took the lead in first-half injury time when Attila Fiola scored at a packed Puskas Arena. But Griezmann equalized from just inside the penalty area after Hungary failed to clear Kylian Mbappe’s cross from the right.

Mbappe had a late shot saved by Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi. The 67,215-capacity Puskas Arena in Budapest is the only stadium to allow full crowds.

Fiola latched onto the ball after Roland Sallai won a header down the left flank, burst into the penalty area and held off defender Raphael Varane before clipping the ball into the bottom corner.
