Zoltán Gera believes Hungary "have a good chance" of reaching the finals despite the 0-0 draw against Greece on Sunday. Pál Dárdai's side sit third in Group F with eight points from five games.

"The next game is critical, in Finland [on 13 June]," said Gera. "If we don't lose there, we have a good chance to stay in third position. Unfortunately we lost the first game against Northern Ireland here. That was a bad loss for us, but we have a good chance."

Gera also highlighted the September appointment of Dárdai as a turning point in Hungary's campaign. "With the new coach, we have won two, drawn two [qualifiers] and conceded only one goal, so if we continue our work and play like this, we have a good chance. We're organised and that's the key. Dárdai knows international football so he doesn't want us to dominate the whole game; he knows what we have and what we can do. We played have together for a long, long time so he knows what we're capable of."

Nemanja Nikolić, Hungary striker who came on as a substitute:


I was very happy to get on to the pitch because this was a very important match for us. Even though it was the last match it would have been good to win it, but our aim beforehand was to score at least a point and we were successful in scoring a point against a Greece team which I consider to be the best team we have faced in the group thus far - they were better than the Romania team. We created some good chances right up until the last minute which we could have won the game with but we still scored a point which I think we can also be happy with.

Our backroom staff studied the Greece team in detail and did very well to work out the tactics which we needed to use. We knew they'd be a strong team that didn't necessarily play beautiful football.

I think it was a point won today because we didn't lose or even concede but created chances against a good team with good players, so I'm very positive. We knew we could create chances and we weren't afraid to still try and win it at the end, so we will take this forward and so I think it was a point gained.
