Euro 2024 is underway, having kicked off June 14. Hungary opened its Group A stage play with a 3-1 loss at the hands of Switzerland. Already a longshot on Euro 2024 odds boards, the Hungarians need to notch a win or draw in their next match against host Germany. Below, we’ll look at Hungary national team futures, match schedule, roster, and more. Click any of the odds below to bet now.

A young and inexperienced yet talented group, Hungary projects as a longshot in Group A. Manager Marco Rossi leads the Hungarian national team, a spot he’s held since 2018. Hungary last played in qualifiers for the 2020 Euro but failed to make the group stage. With young talent Dominik Szoboszlai, they look to clinch a spot in the knockout round for the first time since 2016.

What Group Is Hungary In? 

Hungary lands in Group A alongside Germany, Switzerland, and Scotland. Rossi’s crew ranks 26th in the current FIFA World Rankings – third-highest among the group members. Germany is 16th, Switzerland ranks 19th, and Scotland ranks 39th.

Up to three teams can advance into the Euro 2024 knockout stage. During group play, teams earn points for wins (three) and draws (one). Whichever two teams accumulate the most points in the group advance. Additionally, the four third-place finishers with the most points also advance. If Hungary finishes third, their fate depends on how they compare to the third-place finishers in the other groups.

How Hungary Qualified for Euro 2024

Hungary drew into Group G for the qualifying round, going unbeaten. They posted a 5-3-0 match record against Bulgaria, Montenegro, Lithuania, and Serbia. Perhaps most impressive along the way was going 2-0-0 against Serbia (33rd in the FIFA World Rankings), who qualified for the 2024 Euro, too. The other nations did not rank higher than 70th.

Notable players

Despite being just 23 years old, midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai serves as captain for the Hungarian national team. He also is the highest-scoring midfielder on the squad, scoring four goals and adding three assists in the eight qualifying matches. In his first season with Liverpool, Szoboszlai netted seven goals (between the Premier League, Europa, and EFL Cup) and added three more assists.

Vice-captain Attila Szalai is in his fourth go-around with the Hungarian national team. He last played in the World Cup qualifiers in 2021-22 and also played in the 2020 Euro qualifiers. However, this is the first time Szalai made it to the group stage in any international tournament.
