Liverpool midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, the Hungarian captain, was in tears as medical staff responded to his teammate, according to TV commentary of the game.

The Hungary team formed a shield around Varga while he received treatment and TV cameras panned away.

The game was held up as Varga required lengthy treatment.

After several minutes, Varga was eventually taken away on a stretcher as both sets of fans applauded.

He has since been taken to hospital, where he is said to be stable.

A statement from the Hungarian Football Federation read: "Barnabas Varga's condition is stable. The Ferencvaros player is currently in one of the hospitals in Stuttgart. We will inform you immediately if there is any news about his status."

Hungary head coach Marco Rossi later added Varga would be "okay" but may need an operation on his cheekbone.

A VAR check for a possible penalty after the injury came to nothing.

Scotland were later knocked out of Euro 2024 after losing the match 1-0 to Hungary thanks to a late goal in added time.
