Jamal Musiala and Ilkay Gundogan scored to secure Germany a 2-0 victory against Hungary in Group A on Wednesday, making the host nation the first to advance to the knockout rounds of Euro 2024. With two victories in two matches, Germany is assured a spot among the top four third-placed teams. Musiala, playing in his hometown, capitalized on poor Hungarian defense in the 22nd minute, receiving a pass from Gundogan and scoring decisively. Hungary's Roland Sallai had a goal disallowed for offside during first-half stoppage time, and they missed several other opportunities. Gundogan, delivering a man-of-the-match performance, sealed the win in the 67th minute with a straightforward finish following a precise buildup. This marks Germany's first competitive win over Hungary since the 1954 World Cup final, sparking hopes for a fourth European Championship win on home soil. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer noted the positive atmosphere and the team's need to focus on their next challenging match. The game was watched by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, amidst a lively atmosphere in Stuttgart. Hungary's manager, Marco Rossi, had warned against mistakes, which Hungary unfortunately made early in the game. Germany maintained pressure, ensuring their progression to the next round, with their final group game against Switzerland on Sunday. Hungary's chances of progressing depend on beating Scotland and favorable other results.
