European Qualifiers: Group F Round-Up

Well, after another eventful round of games yesterday, which saw a few surprise score lines and not to mention, some nail-biting tension, here are all of the results that you need to know, along with my opinions on the game’s key moments.

 

UEFA European Championship Qualifying- Group F:

 

Hungary 2-1 Faroe Islands

This was another game in which the favourite ran out winners; it wasn’t an easy game however. Faroe Islands took the lead early on in the 11th minute, which was a shock to the system for most people as they’d only won one in eight prior to this game.

 

However, this goal actually kicked hungry into gear, and with over 70% of the ball during the game, the pressure eventually took its toll, and Hungary scored two very good goals to ensure they picked up the three points.

 

 

Northern Ireland 3-1 Greece

 

Northern Ireland have qualified for Euro 2016. What a moment for them, and for manager Michael O’Neill. A superb display from the green and whites saw them convincingly beat a poor Greek side, who haven’t won a game throughout the group stages.

 

Steven David who was man of the match, scored two well-worked goals alongside Josh Magennis who scored his first international goal after, believe it or not, playing for Northern Ireland U17’s as a goalkeeper.

 

Remarkable story for him, and this is a game that will live long in the memory of any Northern Ireland fan.

 

Romania 1-1 Finland

 

This wasn’t the best of games, however a draw probably suits both sides. Romania are sitting in 2nd place and Finland are in 4th after this stalemate in Bucharest.

 

Hoban’s 91st-minute equaliser for Romania cancelled out Pohjanpalo’s 67th-minute opener for the away side. A point for each side could be key with the last couple of games to be played very soon.
