Holman double inspires second Hungary success

Hungary 4-1 Bosnia and Herzegovina
A goal down at half-time, Hungary scored four without reply in the second period as they made it two Group 4 wins out of two.

Hungary produced a stirring second-half performance to defeat Bosnia and Herzegovina and make it two victories from two in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 4.

Sanjin Prcić put the visitors ahead in the eighth minute with a powerful header from Tomislav Barišic's right-wing cross, and Vlado Jagodić's side would have stretched their lead a little under a quarter of an hour later had Haris Duljević's drive gone under, rather than rebound off, the crossbar.

Hungary, 2-1 winners in Albania in June, emerged from the half-time break an altogether more determined outfit and had Dávid Holman to thank for their equaliser, the substitute heading in a delivery from Roland Szolnoki.

Szolnoki's fellow full-back Botond Baráth turned the game in the hosts' favour with a headed goal of his own just before the hour, nodding in Krisztián Adorján's corner. With 19 minutes left, Holman scored his second and Hungary’s third, taking down István Kovács' cross-field pass and calmly stroking the ball past Kristijan Jajalo.

Adorján got the goal his second-half display deserved when he stroked in a penalty, awarded after Kovács had been brought down by Goran Zakarić.
