Hungary striker Barnabas Varga is in stable condition after being stretchered off during Euro 2024’s match against Scotland.

The collision with Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn and defender Anthony Ralston in the 68th minute left Varga unconscious. Teammates, including captain Dominik Szoboszlai, called for immediate medical attention. Varga was treated on the field and then taken to a Stuttgart hospital with a broken cheekbone, requiring surgery.

Hungary’s football governing body confirmed Varga’s stable condition, and coach Marco Rossi expressed relief despite concerns about delayed medical response. Gunn and Ralston continued the game after treatment, and a VAR check confirmed no foul.

The match resumed after a seven-minute stoppage, with Hungary scoring a last-minute winner by Kevin Csoboth, eliminating Scotland from the tournament.

Scotland captain Andy Robertson expressed his devastation, acknowledging the team’s missed chances and thanking fans for their support.

The incident drew parallels to Christian Eriksen’s collapse at the previous Euros, highlighting the importance of immediate medical intervention. Eriksen’s quick resuscitation and subsequent recovery allowed him to continue his career, serving as a reminder of the critical nature of on-field medical readiness.
