Hungary v Northern Ireland background

Hungary will look for a fifth successive victory against Northern Ireland as the sides reconvene in UEFA EURO 2016 Group F for their first competitive meeting since September 1989.

Hungary will look to maintain their 100% record against Northern Ireland as the sides meet in their opening UEFA EURO 2016 Group F qualifier in Budapest.

Match background
• Hungary's four meetings with Northern Ireland have ended W4 D0 L0 (W1 D0 L0 at home – W3 D0 L0 in Belfast). The sides' most recent encounter was a friendly at Windsor Park on 19 November 2008, Erwin Koeman's Hungary beating Nigel Worthington's home side 2-0, with Sándor Torghelle (57) and Zoltán Gera (71) on target.

• The sides' only competitive encounters came in 1990 FIFA World Cup qualifying; István Vincze scored the only goal as Hungary won the home game 1-0 in Budapest on 19 October 1988. Billy Bingham's men also lost the second meeting on 6 September 1989, 2-1, Norman Whiteside (89) striking late after Kálmán Kovács (13) and György Bognár (44) had set Hungary on their way.

• The nations' first meeting at any level was in the 1954 FIFA Youth Tournament – Hungary winning 7-2 in West Germany on 13 April.

• The nations' only previous meetings in UEFA age-group competitions both came in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship qualifying round and ended in a win and a draw for Hungary. They prevailed 2-1 in Lurgan in November 2002, then drew 0-0 at the same venue in October the following year.
