Watch: Antoine Griezmann Scores Amazing Goal | Hungary 1-1 France

Mbappe heads it just wide of the Hungarian goal. Digne with a perfect cross near the Hungary six-yard box, only for Mbappe to miss it. Hungary keeper Gulacsi makes a brilliant save to deny Griezmann from a close range. And the flag is also up for an offside. This after the keeper fumbled to hold the ball from a Benzema strike from 25 yards out.

Hungary, playing at home in the Puskas Arena, go with a back three of Endre Botka, Willi Orban and Attila Szalai. Former France youth international Loic Nego – the only change in the Hungary lineup – and Attila Fiola are expected to start as wing backs.

Skipper Aadam Szalai and Roland Sallai will lead the line as they look to score their first goal at the European Championship following a 3-0 loss to Portugal in their opening game. France made only one change to the starting lineup that beat Germany 1-0 in their group opener with Lucas Digne coming in at left back in place of Lucas Hernandez to take on Hungary on Saturday.

Coach Didier Deschamps decided to stick with the midfield trio of N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot that dominated their first Euro 2020 game while the attacking trident of Antoine Griezman, Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema also remains intact

Hungary will leave everything on the pitch against world champions France in their Group F match on Saturday in Budapest, coach Marco Rossi said, noting wryly that the French team is worth 15 times more than his side. Hungary are the underdogs in a “Group of Death” with France, Germany and Portugal.

They had been holding defending champions Portugal to a goalless draw until the 84th minute in their opener on Tuesday, only to concede three goals in the closing minutes. It will likely stick to its customary defence-heavy tactics against another team boasting a world-class attacking line, Rossi said.
