Camera flashes were going off all over Masterplast Arena as Hungary started their second game of the EURO, this time against Turkey.

Hungary lived up to the expectations of the crowd as Attila Heger handed his team the lead 10 minutes after the kick off. Robert Fekete soon became the hero of the first half as he scored a double helping Hungary leave with a comfortable 3:0 lead for the break.

Attila Nagy scored Hungary’s last goal of the match in the 25th minute. However, Turkey showed real spirit and determination during the last 10 minutes. Kaan Gulay and Berkan Koc found the net in the 32nd and 37th minute respectively before the match finished with Hungary’s 4:2 victory.

It was well into the night when the eleventh match of the day, between Moldova and Israel, started. Few chances were created by either side in a goalless first half. The game appeared to be heading for a goalless conclusion when Moldova’s Eduard Valuta finally broke the deadlock with 5 minutes remaining. He doubled the lead in the last minute sealing the 2:0 win.

The last match of the day saw Croatia play against Cyprus. Croatia made a bright start as Matija Ezgeta scored the opener in the 4th minute. The relatively eventless first half finished with Croatia increasing the lead to 2:0.

Like in the first half, Croatia started the second half in positive manner. Five more goals in the last ten minutes gave Croatia and the spectators a perfect ending to the day. The final score was 7:0 to Croatia.
