Nemzetisport.hu writes that Bernd Storck, the coach of the Hungarian national football team, narrowed down his squad preparing for the World Championship qualification round against Switzerland to 23 players.
Ádám Kovácsik, Gergely Nagy, Szilveszter Hangya, István Kovács and Dominik Nagy were left out of the previous squad so they won’t step onto the pitch against Switzerland, just like the injured Endre Botka and Dániel Böde.

Goalkeepers: Dénes Dibusz (Ferencváros), Péter Gulácsi (RB Leipzig), Balázs Megyeri (Greuther Fürth)

The first period of the preparation for the World Championship qualification matches against Switzerland and Latvia was finished on Friday. Yesterday the team had a training with the U21 team. Bernd Storck emphasizes that the joint trainings were very useful and they proved that there are many players in the U21 squad who have the potential to be part of the national squad in the future.
The members of the final squad will meet again in Telki on Sunday, when most of the legionary players will also join the national team.
The World Championship qualification match against Switzerland will be held in the Groupama Arena on the 7th of October. Next up the Hungarian national football team will step onto the pitch of the Latvian team on the 10th of October. All tickets were sold out for the Hungary-Switzerland match.
