Dan's the man for Hungary.

Byline: ZOLTAN FAZEKAS

Hungary 2

Faroe Islands 1

SUBSTITUTE striker Daniel Bode scored twice as Hungary came from a goal down to beat the Faroe Islands and keep alive their chances of qualifying for the Euro 2016 finals.

The result left Hungary with everything to play for in their final match against bottom side Greece.

Northern Ireland are through with 20 points and either Romania (17) or Hungary (16) will take the remaining automatic place.

The Faroes stunned the home crowd by taking the lead against the run of play in the 11th minute when Roaldur Jacobsen finished a quick counter attack.

Hungary piled on the pressure and Adam Bodi should have scored just before the break but his tame effort from was well saved by Gunnar Nielsen.

Bode then made the difference, the striker nodding in after Tamas Kadar's inch-perfect cross in the 63rd minute.

The one-man show had only just started though as he grabbed his second eight minutes later.

Visiting captain Atle Gregersen was sent off in the last minute for arguing with the Hungarian bench.
