Hungary captain, Dominik Szoboszlai, produced a sportsmanlike moment after consoling his Liverpool teammate Andy Robertson following their last-gasp victory at the European Championship.

Kevin Csoboth scored in the 100th minute to send Scotland home as they became the first team to exit the tournament in Germany.

The victory, however, keeps the Hungarians in the competition as one of the sides that will go through as a third-best-placed team.

In a video shared on social media, Szoboszlai was spotted consoling a dejected Robertson right after the final whistle.

The Hungarian and Robertson have been teammates since last summer when he joined the Reds from German RB Leipzig.

Meanwhile, a draw could have kept Scotland's slim hopes of progressing to the Round of 16 alive but the injury-time goal from Csoboth meant that was the end of the road.

Hungary had lost their opening two games of the competition after an opening day defeat to Switzerland and in the second match to host Germany.

However, the victory over Scotland keeps them in third position with three points.

Meanwhile, Germany and Switzerland share the first and second places respectively after the other game in Group A ended 1-1 on Sunday night, as reported by the BBC.

Hungary eliminates Scotland from Euros

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Csoboth scored in the 10th minute of added time after a frightening injury to Barnabas Varga as Hungary snatched a 1-0 win over Scotland to stay in the hunt for a place in the last 16 of Euro 2024.

A sickening incident led to Hungary striker Varga being stretchered off in front of his visibly shocked teammates in the second half, but Csoboth's late winner kept them alive in the tournament.

The Hungarian Football Federation said shortly after Sunday's match that Varga was in a "stable condition" in a hospital in Stuttgart.
