Dominik Szoboszlai made history as Hungary came back from behind to book their spot in the Euros next year.

The home side pulled off a thrilling fightback and shocked Iceland to a 2-1 defeat in Budapest last night.

Former Liverpool and current RB Leipzig goalkeeper, Peter Gulacsi suffered a massive howler when he fumbled in a free kick from Everton star Gylfi Sigurdsson to give Iceland the lead in the 11th minute of the game.

Iceland bravely held on to their lead for the majority of the game but succumbed to the relentless pressure from the home side when substitute Loic Nego leveled the scoreline in the 88th minute.

Dominik Szoboszlai scored the match-winner 4 minutes later to send the Hungary contingent into raptures.

The 20-year-old showed nerves of steel as he ran from his own half and weaved a beautiful run in the midst of 4 Iceland players before shooting the ball inside the net from 20 yards out.

Hungary have now booked their spot in Group F which includes juggernauts like France, Portugal and Germany .
