In the second half Slovakia pressed for an equaliser but couldn’t find a way past the opponent’s defence and the game finished in defeat for them. The final score: Slovakia 1-2 Slovenia

The visitors responded once in the second half, but in the final moments Gabor Csernai powered home his second goal to give Hungary a 7-1 victory and to become the first winner of the Christmas Cup.
