    Priskin's goal was great, Norway don't look dangerous at all.

    Norway hit the post right before halftime, would have been a key goal but in reality prior to that chance they didn't do much

    Norway look nowhere near close to scoring twice, they have a little over 20 minutes. Hungary themselves very comfortable over these two legs but in all reality these are two below average teams who would have no business of qualifying in a 16-team Euro

    Hungary has played really smart. Sure they've had some margins on their side but they definitely looked like the team with a better game plan all along.

    tie over, Hungary score after a fortunate deflection off the post onto the goalkeepers arm and into the net. Norway simply didn't do enough this match

    Hungary is reaching Greece levels of luck. But they deserve to go through.

    Norway score a goal so a slight lifeline, only 4 minutes left however to score twice

    Hungary qualify for the Euros! 3:1 on aggregate over Norway. For Hungary their first tournament since 1986 and their first Euro since 1972. Wasn't really impressed with them from what I saw in qualifying, they defend well but have little creativity going forward, probably one of the weaker teams in the competition next summer

    Norway lack any sort of creativity too, the fact they had to rely on a 16 year old kid in this important fixture says it all

    Norway lacked a proper striker. They did create chances but their finishing was awful.

    Your assesment of Hungary is spot on, the only reason they even had a chance to qualify was because Greece failed spectacularly.

    part of me likes that teams such as Iceland and Hungary are making it, clealry thanks to the new added teams format. But yeah, I'm going to miss the several mouth watering groups of death the Euros would always serve up when 16 teams were only allowed.

    Iceland were the first team to qualify for the tournament, so you can't lump them in with Hungary.

    Speaking of Hungary, a team with an old man in cotton trackies will be at the tournament and Scotland won't, ****ing hell

    Gone are the massive intense matches from game 1 or insane groups and knockout ties from the start.

    Now we'll have teams knowing a couple draws and finishing third in their group will qualify them for the knockouts..and in fact might get a more beneficial matchup due to playing some second place teams and not first.

    Ireland only make one change with Jonathan Walters coming in for Stephen Ward, Brady drops back to left back. O'Shea and Long on the bench. Bosnia make three changes, including two in the back line. Ibisevic also drops to the bench with BiH only playing one up front

    Some Bosnian fans shouting and chanting "Bosnia!!" during the moment of silence. Absolute clowns. Disgraceful.

    Cocalic might be the worst player I've ever seen. Teammates are looking him off when he's open as they know he'll just give it away or do something stupid. Can't tackle worth ****, can't mark worth ****, and loses every challenge. It's an embarrassment.

    easy finish by Walters, harsh on Bosnia but BiH were really all over the place last few minutes.

    Hungary must have a better option somewhere, he was a emergency backup for Fulham last Year in the Championship, and was perhaps the worst goalie I've ever seen play at that level
