Sheets were brought out to cover Varga with several team-mates including Dominik Szoboszlai seen in tears.

Uefa showed a wide angle replay during their coverage of the Euro 2024 contest but did not show any close-ups of the incident.

Varga was carried off the field on a stretcher, which Szoboszlai helped carry onto the field, as fans applauded in the hope he will be OK.

Martin Adam came onto the field to replace Varga, 29, who plays for Ferencvaros in his homeland.

The game was paused for five minutes before resuming after a VAR check for a potential penalty was waved away.

Footage reported to show Varga leaving the stadium in an ambulance was shared on X.

Former Scotland international Pat Nevin insisted Gunn had every right to go for the ball.

He told BBC 5 Live: “We have seen it before if a keeper comes out and he doesn’t get the ball but takes a player it is a foul.

“I actually think Angus Gunn got some of the ball there.”

Hungary scored via Roland Sallai in the 100th minute after a lightning counter to send Scotland tumbling out of the Euros.
