Storck hails Hungary's "dream come true"

Hungary coach Bernd Storck says his side's shock Euro 2016 victory over neighbours Austria is "a dream come true".

Adam Szalai and Zoltan Stieber netted as the Magyars beat 10-man Austria in their Euro 2016 Group F opener in Bordeaux.

Szalai opened the scoring on 62 minutes with his first goal for club or country in 18 months, and then, with Austria down to 10 men following the red card for Aleksandar Dragovic for a second bookable offence, Stieber wrapped up victory three minutes from time.

"You can see how the fans reacted, that was brilliant," Storck said.

"A dream has come true. We hoped for it, we wished for it. When everyone puts in hard work, it pays off. Everyone who helped make sure that we could win this game must be praised."

The 53-year-old was delighted at how his players dealt with the pressure during Hungary's first appearance at a major tournament since the 1986 World Cup.

"We always try to score going forward and what we did in the second half was brilliant," Storck continued.

"We scored a fantastic goal through Szalai. He got his reward for a hard-working performance."

“The second goal was well worked, a classic counter.”
