There is a violent clash during the European Championship match between Scotland and Hungary.

During a free kick, Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn (28) comes out and collides at full speed with opponent Barnabas Varga (29) and teammate Tony Ralston (25). Varga gets an elbow from Gunn on his chin.

Center forward Varga then lay unconscious on the ground. His teammates immediately frantically called for paramedics. They treated the Hungarian on the pitch.

As the TV footage shows, teammate Dominik Szoboszlai even has tears in his eyes. The Liverpool professional even helps the paramedics bring the stretcher onto the pitch.

After several minutes of treatment, Varga is carried off the field. The paramedics hold up a blanket so that the spectators cannot see anything.
