They will start their journey in the same scenario where they defeat Iceland in their final group match five years ago. They are in good form, as their 4-0 win over Israel last week showed.
On the other hand, Hungary will be the underdog of a tough Group F, where also are Germany and France. But, despite that, they are not an easy side to go against. They come from a 0-0 draw against the Republic of Ireland in an international friendly.
