Switzerland vs Germany live updates: Hosts fight back to draw 1-1 and top Euro 2024 group

A serious-looking injury to Hungary’s Barnabas Varga overshadowed events on the field at the European Championship on Sunday.

The 29-year-old striker was taken to hospital and is in a stable condition after he collided with Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn. As Gunn punched the ball with his right arm, Varga’s head appeared to collide with his trailing left arm.

A stretcher was brought onto the field, with Hungary players running to the people carrying it to urge them to speed up. Varga was taken off the pitch on the stretcher with sheets continuing to be held up around him. He was applauded by all sections of the MHPArena in Stuttgart.

The game was paused for six minutes before restarting in the 74th minute. When play resumed, Hungary scored with almost the last kick of the game to win 1-0, eliminate Scotland and give themselves a chance of qualifying as one of the best third-placed teams.
