For Hungary, the dream goes on.
By some distance, the best performance at the championship so far – no matter how willingly Turkey appeared to roll over and take a pummelling.
Hungary may still have to prove they are big enough to merit sharing a pitch with a certain Cristiano Ronaldo. Frankly it was hard enough for them sharing a pitch with Iceland. In this meeting of two of Euro 2016’s surprise teams Iceland were less than three minutes plus added away from etching their names into the history books as they pumped every muscle to protect a 1-0 lead. But as has become typical of this tournament, a late twist wrestled away the storyline.
The German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld once sneered: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat: you lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” Try telling that to Gabor Kiraly.
Very impressive, even if their opponents were disorganised and borderline disinterested.
Adam Szalai is not exactly prolific. Hungary’s No9 managed to go through the whole of last season without scoring for both the clubs he represented Hoffenheim and Hannover and he came into this tournament without a goal for his country since October 2014.

Eden Hazard knew the question was coming and he did not miss a beat. Had this been his best match for Belgium? “Yes,” was the characteristically precise response from a man of few words. Hungary had been torn apart from the opening minutes and, while Belgium should have been out of sight well before the closing stages, the element of doubt allowed their captain to apply two flourishes that may have far-reaching consequences.
