Kutuzov stuns Hungary

Hungary 2-5 Belarus Two goals from Vitali Kutuzov helped Belarus to a stunning victory.

Hungary 2-5 Belarus
Two goals from Vitali Kutuzov helped Belarus to a thumping 5-2 win against Hungary in Debrecen today in front of 8,000 spectators.

Double strike
The Milan AC forward struck twice in the space of four minutes midway through the first half after Aleksandr Kleb had equalised Krisztian Kenesei's 13th-minute opening goal for Hungary.

Small consolation
Aleksandr Hackevic added a fourth just before the break with Petr Kacsuro making it 5-1 to the rampant visitors in the 76th minute. Miklós Fehér scored a late consolation for Imre Gellei's team from the penalty spot with four minutes remaining.

Portugal awaits
Both teams were continuing their preparations for the EURO 2004™ qualifying campaign which kicks off in the autumn.
