Euro 2020: Hungary vs France Stats Highlights: Hungary hold France to 1-1 draw
Euro 2020 Hungary 1-1 France: Griezmann strikes as Les Blues held amid raucous atmosphere in Budapest
But shortly after half-time, France were relieved as Antoinne Griezmann found the equaliser in the 66th minute. But the Les Blues failed to find the winner and had to settle for just a point. The result means France have to wait to secure their place in the knockout stages.
With OPTA inputs, myKhel.com looks at the statistical highlights of the match played at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium in Budapest on Saturday.
● France remain unbeaten in their last nine matches at major tournaments (W7 D2 – World Cup and Euros), although this draw ended their five-match winning run at such competitions.
● Hungary have never lost any of their four European Championship matches in which they have scored the opening goal (W2 D2).
● This was the first time that Hungary avoided defeat to France in any competition since May 1976, when they beat them 1-0 in a friendly, ending a five-match losing run against Les Bleus.
● Attila Fiola’s opener for Hungary was the first time France had conceded in six matches in all competitions, ending a run of 527 minutes of play without shipping a goal.
● France are unbeaten in their last 11 group stage games at major tournaments (World Cup and Euros), winning seven and drawing four since a 0-2 loss to Sweden at EURO 2012.
