Update given on Barnabas Varga after collision with Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn

Update given on Barnabas Varga after collision with Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn

The match was temporarily halted after Barnabas Varga collided with Angus Gunn.

There has been an update on the condition of Hungary striker Barnabas Varga after his collision with Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn.

On Sunday night, Scotland’s dreams of sealing a place in the last 16 of Euro 2024 were dashed after a dramatic late goal scored by Kevin Csoboth in the 10th minute of stoppage time.

During the second half of the match, with 69 minutes on the clock, the play was stopped after a heavy collision involving Varga and Gunn.

The Hungarian striker was left on the deck as blankets were held up to shield him from all the cameras around the ground.

After the match, an update was given about the 29-year-old’s condition.

Journalist Ben Jacobs wrote on social media: “The Hungarian Football Federation confirm Barnabas Varga’s condition is stable and he has been taken to hospital in Stuttgart.”

After the winning goal was scored, Hungary players held up Varga's shirt to show support to their teammate.


With three points on the board, Hungary will now face an anxious wait to find out whether they will be able to advance to the round of 16 as one of the four best third place finishers.

If Spain and Italy win their last fixture, against Albania and Croatia respectively, the third-place team in that group will only have one point.

In addition, if Portugal and Turkey win their last match, the third-place team in that group will also have one point.

With that, Hungary will sneak through to the round of 16, and will likely play Spain, Portugal or the winner of Group E, which is likely to be Belgium.
