THE BIGGER PICTURE: The victory saw Hungary maintain their place at the top of their Nations League group. They extended their gap at the top to two points after Italy leapfrogged Germany into second with a 1-0 win of their own.
WHAT NEXT FOR HUNGARY? They finish the international break with the visit of Roberto Mancini's side to Budapest. If they can avoid defeat, they will win the group and subsequently qualify for the Nations League finals next summer.
