On the back of Friday's first leg victory by 27 goals, Hungary had all but secured their ticket to this December's World Championship ahead of Sunday's return fixture.

The second leg, also played in Hungary, saw much of the same dominance from a young Hungarian side which is beginning to fulfil its potential.
