That's all for now. Until next time, goodbye!
Despite the victory, there is still plenty for Van Marwijk to mull over in the lead-up to the France encounter on June 16. Individual errors in defence will be a concern while Juric appears to be under considerable doubt after lasting just 25 minutes as a half-time substitute.
Teenager Arzani had earlier given Australia the lead just a minute after stepping off the bench. It was poor goalkeeping from Dibusz to allow his tame shot to creep into the net, but the clamour for the 19-year-old to start against France in Kazan will only grow after that goal.
Well, just as it seemed that Sainsbury's horror own goal would give Hungary a draw, Kadar produces his own forgettable moment right at the death. The Dynamo Kiev defender put through his own net to gift Australia a 2-1 victory, their second in the space of eight days on the road to Russia.
T. Kádár
Own Goal
90' + 2' GOAL! Oh dear!! It's another horrible own goal and Australia this time profit to go 2-1 ahead as Kadar, under no pressure at all, turns Irvine's low cross through the legs of Dibusz.
90' + 1' That awful moment for Sainsbury should be enough to give Hungary what will in truth be a deserved draw on home soil.
T. Sainsbury
Own Goal
88' GOAL! Hungary level it up at 1-1 and it's a disaster for Sainsbury. The defender looked to nod Fiola's cross back towards his goalkeeper, but Jones had advanced and the ball instead rolled into an empty net.
86' Vinicius is on the floor and receiving some attention following a head clash with Cahill.
K. Varga
R. Sallai
84' He drifted somewhat in the second half but that's a really encouraging performance from 21-year-old Sallai, who makes way for Kevin Varga.
83' Arzani's maiden international goal for the Socceroos continues to split the teams with just over five minutes of normal time remaining.
T. Cahill
T. Jurić
80' Concerns for Juric. On as a substitute at half-time, he's now replaced by the veteran Cahill. Juric had been struggling with a knee problem in recent weeks.
79' Jones needed to be alert there after a breakdown in communication between Milligan and Sainsbury left the ball temporarily in dispute.
A. Fiola
Yellow Card
78' Fiola who upends Mooy, who wasn't happy with that late challenge.
78' Confidence-boosting save for Jones, who holds a fairly straightforward free-kick from Roland Varga.
M. Jedinak
Yellow Card
76' Jedinak joins Leckie and Jozsef Varga in the book after fouling Vadocz.
D. Arzani
74' GOAL! What an introduction for Arzani! The teenager opens his international account and makes it 1-0 for Australia, but it's a huge error from Dibusz as he allows a tame shot to squirm under his body.
J. Irvine
74' There did not look to be much on when Irvine laid a pass into Arzani's feet, but the winger gambled on an effort that has broken the deadlock.
A. Fiola
G. Lovrencsics
73' A good shift from Lovrencsics ends with him being replaced at right-back by Videoton defender Fiola.
D. Arzani
R. Kruse
73' Teenage winger Arzani, who will be the youngest player in Russia, is handed his second cap at the expense of Kruse.
72' Australia are beginning to get on top in terms of possession. Their intensive pre-World Cup camp could make the difference here.
70' After brushing aside the Czech Republic eight days ago, Australia are hunting back-to-back friendly wins for the first time since 2012.
68' First save for Dibusz! Irvine stings the shot-stopper's palms and, from the resulting corner, the Hull City midfielder nods high.
M. Eppel
L. Kleinheisler
66' An attacking move from Leekens, injecting rangy striker Eppel.
64' Bode wins a corner for Hungary with his first involvement off the bench. Leckie heads the delivery only as far as Lovrencsics, who thumps a 30-yard effort comfortably over the bar.
J. Irvine
T. Rogić
64' Frustrating afternoon for Rogic. He struggled to get into the game and Van Marwijk turns to the energetic Irvine.
D. Böde
Ádám Szalai
62' Szalai's work is done as he's replaced by local favourite Bode, the Ferencvaros striker.
60' Lovrencsics drives into the box and whips a ball to the near post, where Szalai can only find the side-netting with a header from a narrow angle.
60' Nervy moment for substitute goalkeeper Jones, who is fortunate to see the ball cleared after fumbling a routine catch from a corner.
58' And now it's Hungary's turn to look a little short on ideas in possession until Sallai wins a corner from the covering Sainsbury.
56' Australia struggling to find a way through the home side, who are setting up well inside their own half and offering little space in attacking areas.
54' They might be at home but Groupama Arena is not exactly a happy hunting ground for Hungary. They've only won one of their last seven friendlies at the venue and have lost two of the last three, with defeats to Scotland and Kazakhstan.
52' Sallai is still full of confidence from that impressive first half. This time he fires over the bar from 25 yards out.
51' Leckie, who is on a yellow card, receives a talking to from the referee after leaving his foot in on Kleinheisler.
49' Australia start the second half the better of the two sides, Rogic dribbling into the area before Kruse hits an aimless ball across the face of goal.
M. Jedinak
M. Luongo
46' Socceroos skipper Jedinak drafted in to add a bit of steel to midfield in place of Luongo.
B. Jones
M. Ryan
46' Feyenoord goalkeeper Jones is called on for the second half, giving Ryan a breather after a busy first period.
T. Jurić
A. Nabbout
46' Van Marwijk hands Juric a chance to press his claims for a starting spot against France, the big striker having overcome a recent knee complaint.
46' Back underway in Budapest with Hungary and Australia level after an entertaining first 45 minutes.
D. Dibusz
P. Gulácsi
46' A quiet day's work comes to an end for Gulacsi as Dibusz replaces him in goal.
The Socceroos have found it far tougher than they did against the Czech Republic. Rogic has been worryingly quiet, as has centre-forward Nabbout. They've scrambled well in defence but that's not what Van Marwijk will be looking for this close to the World Cup.
Hungary clearly with the best of proceedings over the opening 45 minutes and they should be ahead. Szalai failed to beat Ryan in a one-on-one, before Kadar saw his stoppage-time header cleared off the line by Risdon. Still, ex-Belgium boss Leekens will be pleased with what he's seen, especially from the enterprising Sallai.
45' OFF THE LINE! Kadar gets his head to a corner but Risdon is there to save Australia with a goal-line clearance.
45' Ambitious from Mooy on the ensuing free-kick, which he bends well wide of goal. Gulacsi is yet to make a save.
J. Varga
Yellow Card
44' Easy decision for referee Jug after Jozsef Varga hangs on to Rogic's shirt and impedes the playmaker's progress.
44' Risdon gets forward for really the first time this half and wins his side another corner. It eventually comes to Kruse but, from 25 yards, the winger fails to test Gulacsi.
42' Szabo combines with Sallai once more before sending a deep cross into the opposite corner. They've wasted crossing opportunities on a couple of occasions, Hungary.
40' Hungary content to sit off the Socceroos and instead look for a turnover in midfield. Leekens' gameplan is looking smart thus far.
37' Stunning from Kleinheisler! He reads Sainsbury's header and, from well outside the area, dips a wicked first-time volley off the top of the crossbar. That deserved a goal.
36' Hungary are winless in each of their three matches in 2018, most recently drawing 1-1 away to Belarus on Wednesday.
34' Left-winger Sallai is giving Risdon a torrid time. The full-back can only concede a free-kick that eventually comes to nothing as Szalai is offside.
33' Australia have a chance to settle after that scare, keeping the ball in the corner until Kruse is flagged for offside.
31' Huge chance for Hungary! Milligan's error at the back allows Varga to slip Szalai through on goal, but Ryan bails out his defender by racing off his line and making a crucial low save.
29' The Socceroos are looking for the speedy Leckie at every opportunity following his two-goal performance in the win over the Czech Republic.
28' Behich advances on the left and swings in a cross that takes a touch before dribbling out for an Australia corner. They work it short, but Hungary are alert and close down the danger.
26' Szalai causing more problems in the box, harrying Mooy into a rushed clearance. The Hoffenheim striker is proving a handful.
25' Much of Hungary's attack is coming down the left flank as they look to exploit Risdon and feed the sizeable Szalai.
M. Leckie
Yellow Card
22' Silly from Leckie. The Hertha Berlin man goes into the book after hitting out at Sallai off the ball. Bit of spice in this one already!
21' CHANCE! Leckie's clever low cross comes through to Kruse, who wastefully side-foots over from just inside the area. 
19' Clumsy foul from the largely anonymous Rogic gives Hungary a free-kick in a promising position. Vadocz meets the delivery at the far post but his volley is deflected and Australia eventually clear.
17' Better from Australia! Kruse helps Mooy's cross onto the crossbar, only for the attacker to be correctly ruled offside.
16' Handy spell of possession from Australia comes to nothing in the end and Hungary are back on the attack, but Lovrencsics' lofted ball is far too heavy.
13' Hungary looking the more dangerous in these early exchanges with a couple of incursions into the area, although they're yet to trouble Ryan.
11' Promising move from Hungary comes to nothing as the overlapping Szabo puts too much on his cross from the left.
10' This is the third international meeting between these nations and first since February 2000. History weighs heavily in Australia’s favour – they have won the past two, netting six times in the process.
8' Roland Varga can't reel in an overhit pass at one end before Kalas does well to intercept Leckie's angled ball in behind at the other. Nice positive intent from both teams.
6' Ouch. Sainsbury gets a taste of his own medicine as Szalai bundles into the back of the defender, who was looking for a pass. An early battle developing between those two.
4' Szalai needs some attention after a knock to the head from Sainsbury and yet, with him off the pitch, Hungary manage to give the visitors a brief scare as Sallai breaks into the box.
2' Australia immediately get on the front foot and win a corner through Robbie Kruse, but his fellow winger Leckie heads harmlessly over.
1' And we're underway! Referee Matej Jug sounds his whistle and Australia get us going at Groupama Arena.
Not long now as both sets of players make their way out for the anthems!
Australia substitutes: Milos Degenek, James Meredith, Tim Cahill, Matthew Jurman, Tomi Juric, Brad Jones, Mile Jedinak, Danny Vukovic, Jackson Irvine, Dimitri Petratos, Daniel Arzani, Jamie Maclaren.
Australia (4-2-3-1): Mathew Ryan; Joshua Risdon, Mark Milligan, Trent Sainsbury, Aziz Behich; Massimo Luongo, Aaron Mooy; Mathew Leckie, Tom Rogic, Robbie Kruse; Andrew Nabbout.
Hungary substitutes: Dominik Szoboszlai, Daniel Bode, Zsolt Korcsmar, Adam Nagy, Richard Guzmics, Attila Fiola, Adam Kovacsik, Denes Dibusz, Bence Toth, Daniel Gazdag, Marton Eppel, Kevin Varga.
Hungary (4-2-3-1): Peter Gulacsi; Gergo Lovrencsics, Paulo Vinicius, Tamas Kadar, Janos Szabo; Krisztian Vadocz, Jozsef Varga; Roland Varga, Laszlo Kleinheisler, Roland Sallai; Adam Szalai.
Hungary, meanwhile, are yet to really get going under Georges Leekens, who has managed just one win in five matches since replacing Bernd Storck last October. Leekens came in after the Magyars finished third in their World Cup qualifying group, 14 points off the top two.
Bert van Marwijk's men eased to a confidence-boosting 4-0 victory over the Czech Republic last Friday and the experienced Dutchman, whose short-term assignment ends after the World Cup, will be looking for more of the same in his fourth game in charge.
This is the final World Cup warm-up for Australia before they fly to Russia ahead of a tough Group C opener against France on June 16.
