EM: Injured Hungarian – new details about Varga

The scene caused consternation. Hungary's striker Varga had to undergo surgery after his collision – but will soon be able to leave the hospital.

After his serious collision with the Scottish goalkeeper, Hungary's striker Barnabás Varga has undergone surgery. The 29-year-old has come through the procedure well and is doing well considering the circumstances, his girlfriend Laura told Hungarian media on Monday. “It's impossible to describe what we felt, the whole thing was a nightmare, I don't even want to talk about it,” said Vargas' partner.

Hungary's team had previously announced that the football professional would remain in hospital for two more days. If everything goes according to plan, Varga could be released on Wednesday, they said. “Barni is over the hill,” his girlfriend Laura posted on social media.

The Ferencvaros Budapest striker hit Scottish goalkeeper Angus Gunn's upper arm with his head in the penalty area after a free kick cross during his team's 1-0 win on Sunday evening. According to information from Monday, Varga suffered a concussion, several broken bones in his face and also lost consciousness. He regained consciousness when he was taken to an ambulance that took him to a hospital in Stuttgart. The European Championship is over prematurely for him.
