My only complaint with the ref so far is that he failed to ensure that both teams were out on the pitch for the start of the game. Think Hungary have arrived to the game late because they've certainly not been out on the pitch at all in the first half! Huge test of mental strength on mental health awareness day! watching this, well whatever you call it! Certainly not a contest, that takes 2 teams to turn up & play!!!  ::)

Slightly less abject 2nd half display by Hungary but fully deserving of the 3-0 drubbing.

Daniele Orsato did nothing wrong - well he wore yellow, but that was it in terms of error. He didn't have too much to do in fairness, only 2 real big calls to make and he got them both spot on.  Penalty & red against Hungary.  The red was a YYR as opposed to a straight red & highlighted player stupidity at its fullest! Kleinheisler was an absolute idiot. Went steaming in for the 1st yellow & earlyish in the 2nd half went steaming in again, this time in the penalty area. Big but easy calls for the ref. Thankfully Gulácsi saved the penalty but in view of 2 of the goals he gave away in the 1st half he needed to redeem himself.  Anyone feeling like they need a laugh, just watch the 1st half of that game & the giftwrapped, complete with bows & ribbons goals gifted by Hungary to Croatia. Happy with all the yellows given & don't feel he missed any, for either team. Played a couple of lovely advantages for Croatia - didn't get the chance to do the same for Hungary as attacking wasn't on the agenda for us tonight, nor was defending or goalkeeping come to think of it but hey ho! No complaints with his performance at all.

Don't tell Edy but I am a little bit in love with Lorenzo Manganelli right now. He was Hungary's most effective defender 2nd half, thank the lord of football for Law 11!
