Hungary demolish San Marino

BUDAPEST, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Adam Szalai's hat-trick propelled Hungary to an 8-0 demolition of San Marino in their Euro 2012 Group E qualifier on Friday.

Szalai, who has already made his mark with three goals for table-toppers Mainz in Germany's Bundesliga this season, scored the goal of the game when he fired in from 30 metres on 27 minutes.

By then the hosts were already 3-0 up with Gergely Rudolf netting twice.

Szalai completed his hat-trick soon after the re-start and further goals followed for Vladimir Koman, Balazs Dzsudzsak and Zoltan Gera, who fired home a stoppage-time penalty after Carlo Valentini had been sent off.
