Peter Gulacsi was let off the hook for a dreadful error as Dominik Szoboszlai’s stoppage-time strike completed a stunning turnaround.

Dominik Szoboszlai’s superb strike completed a remarkable late turnaround as Hungary secured their spot at Euro 2020 with a stunning 2-1 win over Iceland.

Having defended brilliantly amid a Hungary onslaught, Iceland looked to be heading to their second European Championship thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 11th-minute opener, which came courtesy of Peter Gulacsi’s howler.

Yet after substitute Albert Gudmundsson missed a glorious chance to wrap up the win in the 87th minute, Hungary struck twice to book their place at next year’s finals.

Loic Nego had prodded in from close range, before star man Szoboszlai stole victory, thumping in off the upright to thwart Iceland in the most dramatic fashion.
