The pride of 2016

2016 turned out to be a proud year for Hungarian football, the National Team qualified for the Euro’s for the first time since 1972. Not many believed they would progress beyond the group stage but a win v Austria & draws with Iceland and Portugal saw them not only progress but finish top of the group & advance to the knockout phase.

The New Saints vs Videoton

Written by Gaby Kovács The Champions League is all about big European team A vs big European team B isn’t it? Wrong! The magic is to be found way down the leagues and in the early rounds of the competition. It’s about playing teams you have probably never heard of from countries you probably never knew existed.

ZTE 1-0 Man United – The Day Zalaegerszeg Shocked United

  With Videoton’s European exploits continuing to flourish, we look back at Hungary’s best club performance this millenium. Zalaegerszeg’s relegation from NBI last season took everyone by surprise.

Debrecen (1) vs BATE (1) – Champions League Match Preview

  Debrecen host BATE tonight with an away goal advantage, but will have to be wary of the Belarusians who have plenty of European pedigree.
