Even by futsal standards, what happened last night in Debrecen was extraordinary.

The Főnix Arena saw plenty of drama when Hungary staged UEFA Futsal EURO 2010, but the 2016 play-off second-leg between Hungary and Romania topped that. It was 2-2 after the first leg, and that scoreline was matched over Tuesday's 40 minutes, prompting extra time. Florin Matei's hat-trick goal for Romania seemed to have won the tie for the visitors on away goals, but Zoltán Dróth gave Hungary hope with just under four minutes remaining and then – with a single second left – he headed in Norbert Öreglaki's hopeful long ball to spark wild celebrations among the players and the 3,573-strong crowd.
