There's no question that we did not perform as well as we did against the Czeck Republic. This is a concern, as Hungary have a similar ranking to the Czechs and not much at stake either. While some of this is mitigated by the fact that our players are a little fatigued from intensive training, it would seem that we've gone backwards when we need to be going forwards. Lots of work ahead and some tough decisions for our coach in the lead up to our first group match.

There were a couple of positives: (a) Daniel Arzani settling the debate on whether he deserved a spot in Russia by scoring on debut and having a big hand in our second goal; and (b) the fact we pushed on and forced a win with a few minutes remaining.
