Half-Time Report: Hungary, Northern Ireland in stalemate

Northern Ireland hold their own against Hungary to go in at the break still goalless in their opening Group F Euro 2016 qualifier.

Northern Ireland go in level with Hungary at the interval of their opening Group F Euro 2016 qualifier in Budapest this evening.

Both sides had chances inside the early minutes, with Derby County's Jamie Ward scuffing a shot for the visitors before Balazs Dzsudzsak missed the target from 12 yards.

Hungary continued to dominate the possession, but the fans in Budapest were becoming more and more restless and it was Northern Ireland who had the best chance to break the deadlock before the interval.

Ward won the ball on the halfway line and stormed clear, but couldn't beat Peter Gulacsi in the Hungary goal, with Corry Evans also unable to convert on the rebound.
