They Finished 11th: HUNGARY

There is only one Gabor Kiraly. But hopefully the great man between the sticks has more than one pair of his trademark grey trackies, as he was required to pull off a series of saves to keep his side in the Championships. Imagine the green stains, the muddy patches. Nightmare without a high temperature wash.

And he was called into action frequently against Belgium, his saves keeping the scoreline down to four. 

But Hungary had overachieved just to reach the knockouts, and were unlucky that winning their group meant playing Belgium, who finished second to Italy in their group.

Hungary were unbeaten, and exciting to watch, especially during their classic 3-3 draw with Portugal which is still the best game of the tournament so far.

So welcome back to major championships, Hungary, and it was great to see Gabor again.
