    Time:90'
    • Finland
    • Hungary
    • 90+5' The referee blows his whistle immediately after that late, late goal, and what an end to this entertaining match! It's harsh on Finland, who looked to have earnt a draw through Forssell's late goal, but Dzsudzsak's last-gasp hit was worthing of winning any match. The win sees Hungary go top of the group on goal difference over the Netherlands, while Finland remain joint bottom with no points from their first three games.
    • 90+5' GOAL! HUNGARY WIN IT WITH THE LAST KICK OF THE GAME! Balazs Dzsudzsak breaks Finnish hearts with an absolute screamer from just inside the box, lashing a right-foot shot inside Jaaskerlainen's far post and silencing the crowd.
    • 90' There will be four minutes of injury time in Finland. Hungary launch a swift break, and move the ball wonderfully from their own half to the byline, before Sami Hyypia snatches the ball back with a typically robust slide tackle. It's end to end at the death, is there time for one last twist in this match?
    • 86' GOAL! Late drama in Finland! Mikael Forssel springs the offside trap, brings down a dinked ball over the top with a deft touch, and slots the ball into the net with his right foot! The Finland team scramble to get the ball back to the centre-spot, and want the win now! 1-1!
    • 80' The clock is ticking closer to the 90 for Finland, who are getting fewer and fewer chances. This has been something of a smash and grab job from Hungary, who have done just enough to merit their 1-0 lead. Is it too late for Finland to get back into this?
    • 50' GOAL! Cruel on Finland, that, but a cool finish from Adam Szalai puts Hungary in the lead. The Mainz forward broke clear of Sami Hyypia's sluggish offside trap, before casually rounding Jussi Jaaskelainen and tapping into an empty net. 1-0 Hungary!
    • 45' It's goalless in Finland as the half-time whistle goes. Finland are playing well at the Helsingin Olympiastadion, and Hungary don't look like matching the eight-goal haul they achieved in their last outing against San Marino on Friday.
    • 39' It's still 0-0 in Finland, but the hosts are looking the more dangerous of the two sides. Roland Juhasz has gone down in a heap after a robust challenge in the middle of the park for which Mika Vayrynen has gone into the book. It's fiery at the moment, but will suit Finland's Scottish coach Stuart Baxter no end!
    • 16:30 Finland have just got their Group E encounter with Hungary underway, with the hosts looking for a first win over Hungary since 1978! Check how things currently stand in Group E by clicking here
