Hungary strike late to draw with Iceland


Birkir Saevarsson netted a late own-goal as Hungary snatched a 1-1 Group F draw with Iceland in Marseille.

Gylfi Sigurdsson had given Iceland the lead from the penalty spot in the 40th minute, after referee Sergey Karasev ruled that defender Tamas Kadar had fouled Aron Gunnarsson in the box.

Hungary, who dominated the second half, finally broke the deadlock in the 88th minute when Saevarsson a cross from Nemanja Nikolic.

Hungary top Group F with four points from two matches and can secure first place in the group with victory against Portugal in their final group game in Lyon on Wednesday.

Iceland, who have two points from two matches, are still in the hunt for the last 16 ahead of their final group match against Austria in Saint-Denis on Wednesday.

Uefa are likely to launch an investigation after Hungary supporters clashed with security staff ahead of the match and let off flares following the equaliser, the 13th after the 85th minute in this tournament so far.
