Greece's defeat by the Faroe Islands has further opened up Group F according to Hungary's Gábor Király, whose team edged a 1-0 win against Finland.
It was, said coach Pál Dárdai, a victory for collective effort. Still, when pushed he singled out two players for particular praise, saying: "I lost count of the amount of tackles Balázs Dzsudzsák [pictured below having a deserved lie-down] made and Gyula Forró did really well on his debut."
Gyula Forró and Patrik Poór have been called up to the senior Hungary squad for the first time for their qualifier at home to Finland on 14 November and friendly against Russia four days later. The pair are cover for experienced defenders Zsolt Korcsmár and Vilmos Vanczák who, like attacker Roland Varga, are ruled out through injury.
