Hungary defeats Costa Rica 1-0 in international friendly
Coming off a brutal 0-5 loss to Spain on Saturday, the Costa Rican Men’s National Team was hoping for redemption in Budapest – but it was not to be.
Hungary scored in the 36th minute when Nemanja Nikolic redirected the ball into the net past goalie Leonel Moreira, converting a free kick from Ronald Ugrai.
A sluggish Sele didn’t present much danger for the Hungarian defense, and heads home from its European tour without much to show for it.
FIFA will hold its World Cup 2018 raffle on Dec. 1 to determine the composition of the eight groups that will face off when the tournament begins.
