Hungary end 30-year football finals wait

Hungary reached their first major finals since the 1986 World Cup on Sunday when they defeated Norway 2-1 for a 3-1 aggregate victory in their Euro 2016 play-off.

Tamas Priskin scored the opening goal of the game with a spectacular 14th-minute strike before an own-goal from Markus Henriksen seven minutes from time edged Hungary closer to the finals in France next summer.

Henriksen pulled a consolation goal back three minutes from time but it was too little, too late for the Norwegians.
