Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 135338 at Gyilkos katlan today. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Magyarország decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Bocsa - Sebestyén, Lövész, Netye - Erdős, Tóbiás, Náray, Puskás, Papp - Majoros, Lajtos.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and France formed up in a 4-5-1 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Gauche - Marie, Pionnier, Combe, Lamarre - Gilabert, Charpentier, Allard, Coutand, Pépin - Petit.

It was an obvious ambition of Magyarország to play a wide game with their divine (+1) ability to attack down the wings. With 3 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of France resulted in a counter-attack that set Yannis Marie free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. France's Anthony Coutand could have put the guests one up 9 minutes in after chasing a through ball from the right, but Zsolt Bocsa was as quick as a snake, grabbing the ball from under his nose. This was a good period for the visitors, with several opportunities to take the lead, particularly when Éric 'Le chevalier' Pionnier slipped through the left defense to come up alone against Zsolt Bocsa, but the home side's keeper showed his lightning-fast reflexes. The referee showed Magyarország's László Lövész the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Anthony Coutand seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for France after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Maxime 'Wait For It' Combe. That makes it 0 - 1. After 37 minutes, the France players received new instructions from their manager on how to stay in control of the game. Halftime score was 0 - 1. Magyarország did a good job holding on to the ball, with 52 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

Good work by France's defensive line after 60 minutes produced a good counter-attack chance, one of which cut elegantly down the middle of the field and found Baptiste 'Panoramix' Petit alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. The bench was restless, and with 65 minutes gone Magyarország's coach gave Ábel Hacsek the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. Olivér Náray reluctantly left the field. It was obvious that Magyarország had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. After a fatal mistake from the away team's right side defense 66 minutes into the match, an alert Emil Majoros poked the ball past the keeper, bringing Magyarország level at 1 - 1. 70 minutes into the game, Magyarország wanted to bring some new energy to their game. László Lövész gave Patrik Fodor a quick hug as he left the field. After 70 minutes, the Magyarország coach wanted to see a new face on the field, waving Krisztián Lajtos off. Patrik Borbély took his place. After 73 minutes, France's lack of experience resulted in the team's loss of their edge at the end of the game. The coach of France wanted to try to mix things up after 75 minutes, and gave new tactical instructions. The game had been going for 81 minutes when Lehel Papp came in on the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to put away the 2 - 1 goal, giving Magyarország the lead. After 81 minutes, France substituted Anthony Coutand for Benjamin 'BB' Bauduin, hoping for a quick impact on the field. After 81 minutes, France used a short break in the game to take new instructions from their coach. As the game started to slip away for France, the manager decided to change the tactical approach. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Magyarország would have 57 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Zsolt Bocsa performed admirably for Magyarország. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Patrik Fodor seemed to stumble all over the pitch. France's top performer was clearly Baptiste 'Panoramix' Petit. Speaking of stinking up the place, Joseph Gilabert sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 2 - 1.
