However, the most memorable recent encounter between these two teams occurred in the group stage of the UEFA Euro 2021. In that game, Hungary took the lead not once but twice, only to be denied by late goals from Kai Havertz and Leon Goretzka, resulting in a 2-2 draw. That dramatic result had significant consequences, as it knocked Hungary out of the competition and left Germany finishing second in their group behind France. This set up a last-16 tie at Wembley Stadium against England, which Germany went on to lose 2-0.
