A goalscoring debut from Nemanja Nikolić gave Hungary a 2-0 win in their final FIFA World Cup qualifying Group D match but they missed out on a play-off spot.

Hungary will look back on the 92nd-minute goal conceded against Romania in Budapest in March, which turned a victory into a draw, as the defining moment in this campaign and tonight's match against Andorra was played with a sense of foreboding at what was to come. Sure enough Hungary won, but Romania's 2-0 defeat of Estonia gave them the all-important runners-up place.
