Germany 2-0 Hungary: Euro 2024 – as it happened

18h ago 13.56 EDT Full-time: Germany 2-0 Hungary Gewrmany win, as expected courtesy of goals from Jamal Musiala and Ilkay Gundogan but Hungary can leave the pitch tonight with their heads held reasonably high. Following their inexplicably meek performance against Switzerland, they showed up tonight and created several chances but ultimately paid for their toothlessness in front of goal. After back-to-back defeats they will have to beat Scotland in their final group game to have any sort of chance of getting into the knockout stages. Germany are through to the knockout stages and are looking good, even if they do seem a little vulnerable at the back. Share

18h ago 13.52 EDT 90+2 min: Szoboszlai gets penalised for a foul and then picks up a yellow card for booting the ball away in frustration. It’s all over in Stuttgart! Share

18h ago 13.52 EDT 90 min: Neuer drops a cross, the ball is turned goalwards by Gazdag and Kimmich clears off the line for Germany. They break upfield on a counter-attack that breaks down when Sane picks the wrong pass. In all that excitement, Orban went down in the penalty area, appealing for a spot-kick. I’m not sure what, if anything happened to him but he doesn’t get one. Share

18h ago 13.48 EDT 88 min: Hungary double-substitution: Daniel Gazdag and Kevin Csoboth on for Sallai and Varga, the striker who missed Hungary’s best chance of the game when he headed wide on the hour mark. Share

18h ago 13.46 EDT 86 min: Fuhrich wins possession in midfield, charges forward and takes the ball around Roland Salai. There’s no shot on, so he plays the ball inside. Fulkrug tries his luck from distance but fails to hit the target. Share

18h ago 13.44 EDT 85 min: Another Stuttgart player (on loan from Brighton) takes to the pitch as Deniz Undav replaces Ilkay Gundogan. Share

18h ago 13.43 EDT 83 min: A Hungary corner drops deep into the six-yard box. With Martin Adam lurking behind him, Emre Can does well to leap and head the ball over the bar for another one. Share

18h ago 13.41 EDT 82 min: Hungary knock it long from deep trying to pick out Roland Sallai on the right flank. The pass is wayward and Mittlestadt chests down the ball, averting any danger. Share

18h ago 13.40 EDT 80 min: Shortly after coming on, Martin Adam knocks over Mittlestat and concedes a free-kick about 30 yards from his own goal.

18h ago 13.34 EDT 72 min: Germany double-substitution: Emre Can and Chris Fuhrigh on for Robert Andrich and Jamal Musiala. It’s quite the occasion for Fuhrich, who gets to represnt his country in the stadium his Stuttgart team calls home. Chris Fuhrich Share

18h ago 13.30 EDT 70 min: Joshua Kimmich sends a rocket of a diagonal cross-cum-shot across the face of the Hungary goal. It fizzes wide of the far post at speed and is travelling at too fast a pace for Musiala to divert it home with his head. Share

19h ago 13.27 EDT GOAL! Germany 2-0 Hungary (Gundogan 67) Germany double their lead! In acres of space in front of several backpedalling defenders, Ilkay Gundogan runs from deep to sweep a low Max Mittlestadt cross from the left into the corner from 14 yards out.

19h ago 13.24 EDT 64 min: Hungary corner. Nothing comes of it. They’ve just made a substitution, bringing on Lazslo Kleinheisler for Adam Nagy in midfield. Share

19h ago 13.23 EDT 63 min: With the guts of 30 minutes or a little more to go, Hungary are behind but doing OK. At the risk of stating the obvious, one suspects the next goal in this game will be crucial. Share

19h ago 13.21 EDT 60 min: Barnabas Varga gets the jump on Jonathan Tah, who wasn’t tight enough on him, leaping to meet a wonderful Sallai cross from the left but is unable to steer his downward effort on target. It was a glorious opportunity and a bad miss. Share

19h ago 13.17 EDT 58 min: Germany double-substitution: Niclas Fulkrug and Leroy Sane on for Kai Havertz and Florian Wirz. Share

19h ago 13.16 EDT 54 min: Near the byline, Gundogan chops inside and squares the ball across the face of the Hungary goal. Gulasci punches clear and the ball sits up nicely for Kroos, whose shot takes a violent deflection off a defender. Despite looking hopelessly wrongfooted, Gulasci does superbly to keep it out. Excellent goalkeeping. Share

19h ago 13.13 EDT 52 min: Another Hungary counter-attack and Szoboszlai plays the ball to the feet of Schafer again. He turns on the edge of the penalty area but runs into a stout wall of resistance in the form of Germany’s defensive midfielder Robert Andrich. Share

19h ago 13.10 EDT 50 min: Hungary win the ball from a Germany throw-in and the ball is played to the feet of Andras Schafer on the edge of the area. He takes it on the half-turn but is unable to scurry through the defence. He ends up being penalised for a foul and Germany get to clear their lines. Share Updated at 13.10 EDT

19h ago 13.08 EDT 49 min: Szoboszlai plays the ball wide Andras Schafer, who moves it on to Milos Kerkez out near the touchline. The Bournemouth defender wins a corner but nothing comes of it. Share

19h ago 13.07 EDT 47 min: Hungary win a free-kick in their own penalty area after Kai Havertz is spotted grabbing a handful of somebody-or-other’s shirt. Share

19h ago 13.06 EDT Second half: Germany 1-0 Hungary 46 min: Play resumes with Hungary on the ball and no changes in personnel on either side. Hungary kick off by booting the ball in the direction of no fewer than five players sprinting down the left flank, as if they’re playing in a rugby match. Mercifully, none of them catch it and Germany clear. Share

19h ago 12.50 EDT Half-time: Germany 1-0 Hungary It’s all square at the break and having survived big scares in the opening and closing seconds of the half, Germany lead courtesy of Jamal Musiala’s quite weird and slightly controversial goal. Hungary haven’t been unduly phased by going behind and are providing a far sterner test for Germany in 45 minutes than Scotland managed over 90. Share

19h ago 12.48 EDT Hungary equaliser ruled out for offside 45+2 min: Hungary free-kick, wide on the left. Szoboszlai swings the ball into the penalty area, it’s flicked on by Orban and Neuer flaps the ball into the path of Sallai, who nods it home. His celebration is curtailed abruptly as Orban was offside as the ball was sent in. Share Updated at 12.58 EDT

19h ago 12.46 EDT 43 min: Germany continue to hog possession, while Hungary will be hoping to get to half-time without conceding again. It’s heart-in-mouth time for their players and fans as Musiala takes a shot from distance and hits the side-netting. It had me fooled – I thought he’d scored into the top corner and was wondering why his celebration was so muted. Share

19h ago 12.43 EDT 40 min: Germany win their sixth corner and Kroos jogs towards the flag again. His delivery skids off the head off Hungary striker Varga, who puts it out for corner No7. He was sailing close to the wind there, as the ball sailed this wide of the far post. Mr Own Goal nearly registered his fifth strike of the tournament! View image in fullscreen Great leap from Varga. Could have been an Own Goal of the Tournament contender. Photograph: Anna Szilágyi/EPA Share Updated at 12.47 EDT

19h ago 12.40 EDT 38 min: Another Germany corner, won once again by Mittlestadt. Willi Orban clears the ball sent into the mixer by Kroos, then Musiala is penalised for a foul on Orban inside the Hungary penalty area. Replays show it was actually the Hungary defender who trod on Musiala’s instep. Had Musiala gone to ground and appealed, he had an exceptionally strong case for being awarded a penalty by the curtain-twitchers in the VAR room. Share

19h ago 12.37 EDT 35 min: Max Mittlestadt sends a cross from the left into the German penalty area and after a short, impromptu game of head tennis its put out for a corner by Milos Kerkez. Toni Kroos’s latest inswinger is half-cleared, the ball is sent back into the mixer by Mittlestadt and Hungary clear again. Share

19h ago 12.35 EDT 34 min: While Jamal Musiala is the only player in this tournament to have got two goals in this tournament, it’sa worth noting that he is currently being outscored by our old friend Own Goal in the race for the golden boot. Share
