Euros: Hungary news, fixtures, manager, key players, Euros record

Hungary qualified for the European Championship for only the fifth time by topping Group G with five wins and no losses across their eight qualifying matches.

Drawn in Group A alongside hosts Germany, regular competitors Switzerland and a Scotland side who almost pipped Spain to top spot in qualifying, Hungary have tricky hurdles to overcome if they wish to reach the knockout stage.

Hungary manager

Marco Rossi

Italian Marco Rossi spent the majority of his playing career in his home country, spending five years at Brescia and winning the Coppa Italia with Sampdoria in 1994.

The 59-year-old began his managerial career at AC Lumezzane, coaching in the lower divisions of Italian football, before moving to Budapest Honved in Hungary in 2012. He lifted the Nemzeti Bajnokság I title in 2017 - during his second spell with the club - and, after a short spell in Slovakia, took up the international job with Hungary in 2018.

He led Hungary to the group stages of Euro 2020, where his Magyars finished bottom of the “Group of Death” below France, Germany and Portugal - despite losing just once.

Hungary captain

Dominik Szoboszlai

Liverpool midfielder Szoboszlai is only 23, but his talent and leadership skills will keep his side in check in Germany.

The former RB Leipzig star made his international debut back in 2019 and has already made 42 appearances for the Magyars, notching 12 goals in the process.

Szoboszlai has already had a glittering career at his relatively young age, winning four consecutive Austrian Bundesliga titles with RB Salzburg between 2018 and 2021 - as well as three Austrian Cups during this time - two DFB Pokal’s with Leipzig as well as the League Cup with Liverpool this year, and his winning mentality could see Szoboszlai lift the rest of the Hungarian squad to his level.

Hungary key players

Peter Gulasci

Goalkeeper Gulasci never got a look in during his spell at Liverpool between 2008 and 2013 but since joining RB Leipzig, the 33-year-old has become one of the world’s best shot stoppers.

Gulasci has represented Hungary at the last two European Championships and his breadth of experience could prove invaluable if Hungary are to get out of the group stages for the first time since 2016.

Adam Nagy

Midfielder Adam Nagy could be the most experienced player named in Marco Rossi’s squad, having been capped 80 times for his country at the age of 28.

The former Bristol City man spent last season on loan at Italian Serie B side Spezia and could offer defensive stability in the centre of the midfield, allowing the more creative players to get forward and cause havoc for the opposition.

Roland Sallai

With 13 goals in 49 appearances for the Magyars, Freiburg striker Roland Sallai is expected to be the primary danger man up top for Hungary in the summer.

The 26-year-old can be utilised on the wing or as an attacking midfielder and famously scored a brace against England in their 4-0 Nations League win at Molineux in 2022. His pace and directness could provide Hungary with the cutting edge required to progress in this tournament.

Hungary one to watch

Milos Kerkez

Used as a left-back at Bournemouth, Milos Kerkez could be seen in the midfield in Germany and his energy and pace could bring an extra level of entertainment to what could be a disciplined yet creative Hungary side.

At just 20 years of age, Kerkez has already been capped 15 times for his country and a positive showing at this tournament could make him a highly-sought after prospect in the transfer window.

Hungary Euro 2024 prospects

Hungary were close to beating Germany in the last edition of this tournament and the quality and shape of the squad should cause issues for every team in this group.

Marco Rossi’s men will be expected to progress out of the group stage - likely in second or as one of the best third-placed sides - and could even have an outside shout of reaching the quarter-finals. However, it would be a major shock if they progressed any further than the last eight.
