Siegfried kills dragon as Hungary scores goal

From our Danubian football correspondent: 

There was high tension in Budapest last night.

Hungary was trying to reach the last 16 of Euro16 for the first time since 1972.

They were trailing 0-1 to Iceland in the closing minutes.

Many at the Wagner in Budapest opera festival were watching the match on their mobile phones.

The brass players painted national flags on their cheeks.

Then Siegfried drew his sword and Hungary squeaked an equaliser.

Wagner did it for the Magyars.

Elyen Richter! Elyen Nikisch!
