At the beginning of the match, the minutes were basically played in the field, but Dzudzák tried to shoot in the fifth minute, but the attempt was blocked by a visiting defender. The Hungarians had more of the ball than the Greeks, but the Hungarians had the first chance and goal at the end of any action. The Hungarian management didn’t change much in the course of the game, there was an even fight on the pitch. However, among the goalkeepers, only the Greek was employed, but he surely protected Dzúdzák’s shot to the far, lower right corner. In the minutes before the break, the footballer from Debrecen also bothered him with a pass and a corner, but Paszhalakis saved even then.

The departing Hungarian team captain was replaced by national team captain Marco Rossi in the 53rd minute, and Dzudzsák’s name was chanted for a long time by the home supporters. The game continued between the two 16s, so there were no chances or dangerous actions. The first exciting scene of the second half had to wait until the 74th minute, when Ádám, who replaced Dzudzák, shot a 17-meter shot into the lower left corner by Paszhalakis. The Greeks equalized almost completely unexpectedly at the beginning of the period, from 11. At the end of the match, it seemed that neither team could innovate, the first excitement in overtime was that a spectator ran onto the pitch.
However, the slusszpoen was not left behind, because Zsolt Kalmár scored the goal of the Greeks from a free kick from the first touch of the ball after his substitution, so the Hungarian national team closed the year 2022 with a victory.
