After making their way into the play-offs, they defeated Bulgaria 3-1 in the semi-final before trailing Iceland in the final with only minutes to spare. Late goals from Loïc Négo (88) and Dominik Szoboszlai (90+2) meant they snatched victory and a place in Euro 2020. The equipped themselves well against Portugal in the opener and the 0-3 scoreline was probably a little unfair.
Dénes Dibusz, Hungary goalkeeper...
"We can't wait to see what game France are going to play against us. It is clear that if we have a look at their players, the French are maybe the strongest national team, they're world champions, and made the final in EURO 2016."
Hungary Predicted Lineup
Gulácsi; Botka, Orbán, At. Szalai; Nagy; Lovrencsics, Kleinheisler, Schäfer, Fiola; Ad. Szalai, Sallai
Key Player: Willi Orban

Raphaël Varane, France defender...
"It's going to be a very difficult game played in the heat of the day in a full stadium. Our opponents will be playing to stay in the competition. They're a very different prospect to Germany, but they're also very dangerous and very motivated, so we will have to be effective, find their weaknesses and keep our defensive shape."

Lloris; Pavard, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernández; Pogba, Kanté, Rabiot, Griezmann; Benzema, Mbappé
Key Player: Antoine Griezmann
