Debreceni deny Győr in Hungarian Cup final

Adamo Coulibaly struck twice as Debreceni VSC came from behind to win the Hungarian Cup final 2-1, denying Győri ETO FC a first-ever league and cup double in the process.

Győri ETO FC failed to complete a first domestic double, with French forward Adamo Coulibaly striking twice as Debreceni VSC came from behind to win 2-1 in the Hungarian Cup final.

Győr's championship-winning team looked to be on for a historic night when Nemanja Andrić surged down the left wing, wrong-footed two defenders and rifled the ball under Debrecen goalkeeper István Verpecz to give the team from northern Hungary a 19th-minute lead. However, Coulibaly levelled with a deflected effort just after the restart, then won the 71st Hungarian Cup final in the dying minutes on the counterattack, beating defender Vladimir Djordjević before squeezing a right-footed finish inside the far right post from a tight angle.

"We wanted to show against the league winners that we are a good team and we are very happy to win this competition and make our fans proud of us," said Coulibaly. Having led the club to their sixth Hungarian Cup, coach Elemér Kondás added: "We have had some mixed performances this season but it was always our aim to do well in the Hungarian Cup because it is an important competition. Victory today makes up a little bit for a league season which did not go so well."
