Hungary 1 Switzerland 3


Breel Embolo had not played for the Switzerland national team since the 2022 Qatar World Cup but he made an emotional return coming off the bench in his country’s opening Euro 2024 game, scoring the final goal in a 3-1 win over Hungary. The strike came after Hungary had peppered Switzerland, desperately trying to find an equaliser in the second half until Embolo’s late intervention.

Switzerland’s dominant first-half display helped earn them a 3-1 victory over Hungary in Group A at Euro 2024.
In just his second appearance for his country, Kwadwo Duah opened the scoring after a brilliantly timed run allowed him to latch on to Michel Aebischer’s through ball and beat Peter Gulacsi.
Switzerland continued to push for a second and were rewarded just before half-time with Aebischer’s beautiful curling effort landing in the bottom right-hand corner.

Hungary came out fighting after the break and got themselves back into it when a cross from captain Dominik Szoboszlai found the head of Barnabas Varga.
The Hungarians pressed for a leveller, but failed to find one and Breel Embolo sealed the win for Switzerland with a lifted finish over Gulacsi in stoppage time.
The win puts Switzerland level on points with hosts Germany in Group A, with Hungary and Scotland propping up the standings.
