Scotland vs Hungary stopped after medical emergency involving Barnabas Varga

Scotland vs Hungary stopped after medical emergency involving Barnabas Varga

Scotland and Hungary are in Group A action in Euro 2024

The match between Scotland and Hungary in Euro 2024 was stopped after a medical emergency in the second half.

On Sunday night, Scotland arrived at the MHPArena knowing they needed a win to give themselves the best chance of advancing to the round of 16 at Euro 2024.

Steve Clarke's men had most of the ball during a cagey first half but largely failed to make Hungary goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi work.

In the second half of the match, with 69 minutes on the clock, proceedings were stopped after a collision between Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn and Barnabas Varga.

Varga was left on the deck and the game was stopped straight away by referee Facundo Tello.

The medical staff rushed onto the pitch as concerns began to rise about the well-being of Varga.

Speaking on the BBC, commentator Steve Wilson said that Hungary captain Dominik Szoboszlai was left in tears as blankets were held up to shield Varga from the cameras.

Eventually, Varga was carried off on a stretcher and replaced by Martin Adam.


On BBC Radio 5 Live, former Scotland player Pat Nevin said: "We have seen it before if a keeper comes out and he doesn't get the ball but takes a player it is a foul. I actually think Angus Gunn got some of the ball there."

Sky Sports reporter Joe Shread said: "There's going to be plenty of stoppage time. Varga looks in a very bad way.

"Let's hope this isn't as serious as it looks."
