The match was staged in front of empty stands due to racist fan apparitions at a meeting against the English, as decided by the international federation.

The match, which was extremely important for both teams, didn’t start at too high a pace, the stakes seemed to warn players more cautiously, with neither guard taking a risk. The Hungarians played football inaccurately, and when they had the ball, there were no starts or movements towards the ball, so the attack weaving was particularly slow and cumbersome. There was no situation in the entire first half, with the home team reaching a dangerous pass in 45 minutes, while the guests had two blocked shots.

We were lucky we didn’t get it before

However, the sequel started with a Hungarian situation, but Dániel Sallói did not hit the gate up close. Nor did this give a boost to Marco Rossi’s disciples, as the Albanian team tended to have more of the ball afterwards. We had to wait until the 59th minute for the first shot, then Myrto Uzuni stepped out among the Hungarian defenders, but Péter Gulácsi defended his shot with great bravery. The legion of Ferencváros soon ruined a big situation with his head, then he nodded into the hands of the Hungarian goalkeeper.

In the 75th minute, the Hungarians were very close to the goal, but after Dominik Szoboszlai’s pass, Attila Szalai hit the right post. The missed situation avenged itself because ten minutes before the end it set up as a substitute Armando Broja fooled him alone the Hungarian defense, then with an accurate shot Albania scored the decisive goal of the match. The Hungarian national team did not make up for it, so it became almost certain that it would not be able to win the second place in the top six.

As a result of the defeat, the disadvantage of the Hungarians increased by nine points against the undefeated leading Englishmen, and by five behind the second Albanians and four behind the third Poles. Federal Captain Marco Rossi will be the guest of the England silver medalist at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday.
