Hungary hold on to defeat Moldova

BUDAPEST - Serie A players Gergely Rudolf and Vladimir Koman scored Hungary's goals in a 2-1 win over Moldova in their Euro 2012 Group E qualifier on Tuesday.

Hungary, who dominated possession, took the lead five minutes into the second half when Genoa striker Rudolf collected a rebound off a defender and rifled the ball into the left corner from 18 metres.

Sampdoria midfielder Koman struck the second with a crisp low shot from 24 metres into the right corner in the 66th minute.

Moldova grabbed a goal through Alexandr Suvorov 11 minutes from time and threw everything at the home side but Hungary, who lost 2-0 in Stockholm last Friday, held on.
