Liverpool midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai has issued a message of support to Hungary teammate Barnabas Varga, who was hospitalised after suffering a concerning injury in Sunday’s Euro 2024 clash.

The 29-year-old received extensive medical attention inside the Scotland penalty box towards the end of the game before being led away on a stretcher after lengthy treatment. A statement from the Hungary FA later confirmed Varga was in a stable condition in Stuttgart hospital.

Hungary head coach Marco Rossi later added: “Fortunately now we can say Barnay is not under any kind of risk. Probably he will be operated on in the following hours because he suffered a fracture. The most important thing is he is healthy.”

Hungary kept their knockout hopes alive thanks to Kevin Csoboth’s 100th-minute winner in the 1-0 triumph..Captain Szoboszlai, who looked emotional when Varga was receiving treatment, has now sent a message to teammate Varga on social media.

He posted 'Magyarok', which is Hungarian for 'Hungarians', and a number 19 to his Instagram account along with a picture of his team-mates celebrating after the game with Varga's shirt and a snap of himself in a '19' shirt.

A second statement from the Hungary FA explained that Varga has broken a number of bones. It read: "Several bones in Barnabas Varga's face were broken during the collision during the match, and he also suffered a concussion.

"The Ferencvaros striker is most likely to undergo surgery. He spends the night in the hospital in Stuttgart. The whole team is rooting for him!"

During the post-match congratulations over the win, Szoboszlai put on Varga's shirt as he led his team in dedicating the match to the attacker.
