Serbia beat Hungary in a friendly match in Budapest

Tonight in Budapest, the Serbian national football team defeated the Hungarian national team 1-0 in a friendly match.

Serbia came to victory with an own goal by Zolta Nadja in the 35th minute. Previously, Aleksandar Mitrović hit the crossbar, and the ball then bounced on the goal line to Nadja, who failed to intervene in front of his goal.

The goal was recognized only after watching the VAR, and the break for checking lasted a few minutes.

In the continuation, Serbia had the opportunity to score the second goal in the 69th minute, after the counter-attack of Nemanja Radonjić. He sent a cross shot into the penalty area, and after the clumsy intervention of the Hungarian players, Luka Jović came to the ball, whose shot was defended by the goalkeeper Peter Gulači.

During that action, Aleksandar Mitrović was fouled, but after watching the VAR, the judge decided not to award a penalty.

Aleksandar Mitrović had a great opportunity to score in the 76th minute, he came out alone in front of the goalkeeper of the home team, but he did not manage to overcome him.

Hungary had a chance to equalize in the third minute of overtime, but Andreš Šefer hit the post, and in the continuation of the action, Dominik Soboslaj shot over the goal.

Serbia will play its next friendly match on March 29 in Copenhagen against Denmark.
