Szoboszlai and Kerkez feature in Hungary’s 26-man EURO2024 squad

Marco Rossi has named his 26-man Hungary squad to compete in EURO2024, with a further five players named as replacements in case of injury.

Hungary will compete in Group A at this summer’s tournament, facing off against Switzerland, Germany and Scotland for a place in the round-of-sixteen.

Rossi’s squad includes a plethora of recognisable names for Premier League fans, with Bournemouth’s Milos Kerkez and Liverpool’s Dominik Szoboszlai amongst those called up.

Rather than opting to name a preliminary squad that would then be whittled down ahead of the June 7 deadline to name a finalised squad for the tournament, the Hungarian FA [MLSZ] opted to place five players on a standby list.

Krisztián Lisztes, Attila Mocsi, Balázs Tóth, Zalán Vancsa and Bálint Vécsei will be called upon in case of injury or withdrawal, with an official statement on explaining: ‘The professional staff decided to name reserves instead of inviting more than 26 squad members, because the effectiveness of the training sessions would have decreased with more than this number of players, thus the optimal possible preparation for the European Championship would have suffered.’
