Celtic manager Ronny Deila insists Virgil van Dijk does not want to leave the Scottish Premiership leaders in January.
Celtic boss Ronny Deila says keeping his best players will take priority over acquisitions in the transfer window.
Egervori's men were well placed to qualify for the World Cup play-offs prior to the clash, starting the night in second, but they ended it wounded and in fourth.
A passage to Brazil is now all-but closed off to them and 63-year-old Egervori's offer to step down was accepted by the Hungarian Football Federation.
In a statement on its official website, the federation said: "The resignation was accepted immediately."
Egervori added: "It is fair that I offered my resignation. It was a real blow for Hungarian football and it was appropriate.
"I hope the hard work of the last three years will not be lost."
Egervori's assistant, Joseph Csabi, will take the team for the final World Cup qualifier against Andorra.
