Hungary star Barnabas Varga is out of surgery after his horror head injury at Euro 2024.

Barnabas Vargas has shared his first update on social media since sustaining multiple broken bones in his face in Hungary's dramatic win over Scotland at Euro 2024.

The 29-year-old was left in a worrying state after inadvertently crashing into Angus Gunn as they both battled to win the ball.


There was immediate concern for Varga's welfare with his Hungary team-mates clearly distressed.

He was later taken to hospital where it was confirmed he was in a stable condition and would undergo surgery.

Varga now appears to be out of surgery after his wife Laura Skrapits posted a photo of her holding the international star's hand in a touching photo.

"Thank you for your kind, supportive messages," Skrapits wrote.

"Barni is over the surgery. A little rest is waiting for him but he'll be fine!"

Varga shared the post to his own Instagram story, updating fans on his condition.

Varga's doctor from his club Ferencvaros, Gergely Panics, visited the forward in the hospital on Monday where he spoke more about his condition.

"Barni suffered a concussion during the collision and lost consciousness," Panics told Hungarian outlet Magyar Nemzet.

"By the time he reached the ambulance, he had already regained consciousness, after which he was taken to the clinic in Stuttgart, where, after the examination, a therapeutic plan was drawn up, according to which he would be operated on.

"Our striker suffered multiple facial skull fractures, several smaller and larger bones were broken in his face, and some were even dislocated.

"After the operation, he will be kept in for two days. If everything goes well, he will be released on Wednesday."

Dominik Szoboszlai was one of the first players who rushed to Varga's aid and even grabbed a stretched from the medics as he felt they weren't going quick enough.

“I was shocked myself, I tried to put him on his side, which is actually the best thing you can do in situations like this. He couldn’t get enough air.

“I have no idea what the protocol is, whether people are not allowed to run onto the pitch if we need help, but...”

When asked if he felt the medical staff were fast enough, he replied: “I don’t think so.

“You could see that it’s a huge problem. Everyone was running, I was running – these things add up to seconds.

“It’s not my decision, but we have to change something about it. We have to do it faster, much faster. Everyone knows that seconds add up.”
