Hungary's Dzsudzsák draws sting from Romania

Romania 1-1 Hungary

Balázs Dzsudzsák's superbly flighted free-kick for Hungary took the gloss off a positive Romania performance as Raul Rusescu's first international goal failed to earn his side three UEFA EURO 2016 Group F points.

Romania beat their neighbours 3-0 in a FIFA World Cup qualifier last year and looked to be on their way to another victory when FC Steaua Bucureşti forward Rusescu finished coolly just before the interval. However, Dzsudzsák bent a tremendous effort inside Ciprian Tătăruşanu's right-hand post on 82 minutes to square things up.

An early injury to Dorin Goian knocked Romania off their stride a little, but Lucian Sănmărtean put in a starring performance in his first international game in three years. His ball set up Răzvan Raț to test Gábor Király and he then teed up Alexandru Maxim for an attempt that missed the target.

The 34-year-old's class told on the stroke of half-time as he picked out Raț – making his 99th national-team appearance – on the left wing, and the Romania captain steered the ball back across for Rusescu to score his first goal in his sixth outing for his country.

Hungary showed rather more initiative after the restart, while Romania took their foot off the accelerator a bit, yet there was little sense by the time Sănmărtean was substituted on 67 minutes – to a standing ovation from the home fans – that the visitors were about to strike back. However, Hungary did rally and Dzsudzsák's splendid set piece from 25 metres got them their first Group F point.
