Concern for Hungary player Barnabas Varga injured in crucial match against Scotland | World News

There are concerns for Hungary player Barnabas Varga after he was stretchered off the pitch in the country’s crucial Euro 2024 match against Scotland.

The Hungary forward went down in the second half after an apparent clash with Scotland’s goalkeeper Angus Gunn following a free kick.

Hungary players quickly signalled Varga was in trouble and were incensed by the time the medical teams were taking to get over to help treat the player.

Liverpool midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, the Hungarian captain, was in tears as medical staff responded to his teammate, according to TV commentary of the game.

The Hungary team formed a shield around Varga while he received treatment and TV cameras panned away.

The game was held up for several minutes as Varga required lengthy treatment.

After several minutes of treatment, Varga was eventually taken away on a stretcher as both sets of fans applauded.

A VAR check for a possible penalty came to nothing.

Scotland were later knocked out of Euro 2024 after losing the match 1-0 to Hungary.
