The Czech Republic suffered a 2-1 home defeat by Hungary in their final Euro 2012 warm-up game after Adam Gyurcso struck a late winner for the visitors on Friday.

The unmarked Gyurcso latched onto a long-range pass in front of goal and rifled a shot past goalkeeper Petr Czech to claim the victory after the Czechs had dominated possession.

Hungary opened the scoring after just six minutes when Balazs Dzsudzsak’s quick free kick from just outside the penalty area caught the Czechs out as they organised their defence.

The hosts,who created several chances,equalised with a Michal Kadlec penalty midway through the first half after forward Milan Baros was dragged down inside the area.

Czech Republic coach Michal Bilek fielded a full strength side except for injured captain Tomas Rosicky,although the midfielder is expected to be fit for the tournament.

The Czechs,semi-finalists in 2004 and finalists in 1996,play Russia on June 8 in their opening Group A game before facing former European champions Greece and co-hosts Poland.
