Hungary beats San Marino 3-0 in qualifier

Hungary remained third in Group E of European Championship

qualifying following a 3-0 win over San Marino on Tuesday.

Zoltan Liptak put the visitors in front in the 40th minute, Imre

Szabics doubled the lead in the 49th and Vladimir Koman sealed the

win in the 83rd.

World Cup runner-up the Netherlands leads the group with a

perfect 18 points and Sweden is next with 15 after a 5-0 rout of

Finland in the other group match Tuesday.

Hungary has nine points and San Marino remained last with

zero.

San Marino could at least console itself that it performed

better than in its 8-0 drubbing from Hungary in Budapest in

October.
