Hungary v Socceroos

The Socceroos hit it out with Hungary in their final International Friendly before the FIFA 2018 World Cup, walking out with a 1-2 win over the home team.

The goalless first half saw the Australian team struggle to find form with a bevy of errors, slips and bad touches. Hungary were the better team, who played quicker and more aggressively, but were unable to put anything past the post after numerous goal attempts.

In the 74’, 19 year-old A-League whiz kid, Daniel Arzani was subbed onto the pitch, and within his first minute of play, score his first International goal to put the Socceroos ahead 0-1.

An equalizer came for Hungary in the 88’ in a moment of absolute calamity for the Australian team –Trent Sainsbury and keeper Brad Jones had a moment of misunderstanding as Sainsbury’s back pass floated into the back of his own net, bringing the score to 1-1.

In the final minutes, a comical moment seals the win for Australia, with a remarkable 2nd own goal – Daniel Arzani feeds a beautiful ball into the box, where Tamás Kádárs of Hungary makes defensive blunder and sends the ball past his keeper.

Time is up, and the Socceroos victorious 1-2.
