Bernd Storck announces his 23-man European Championship squad
The Hungary national team coach has included seven defenders, seven midfielders and six forwards in his squad which will participate in the European Championships in France.
Hungary take to the pitch at 6pm this Saturday against Germany in their final warm-up match before the European Championships start on 10th June. Those appearing in Gelsenkirchen will be the players who made the final squad of 23 for the European Championships. Bernd Storck today named his 23-man squad for the tournament, with three goalkeepers, seven defenders, seven midfielders and six forwards making the cut. The only real surprise is the inclusion of uncapped MTK right-back Barnabás Bese.
“First of all I’d like to thank all the players for the work they’ve put in. In reality every single one of them deserves to be in the squad as they are without exception outstanding players, but unfortunately I can only name 23 for the European Championships. It was a really tough decision to make. The door is still open to everyone; we have more work to do in the autumn when the World Cup qualifiers begin” said Bernd Storck after announcing his squad.
Teams still have the possibility to make one change to their official squad handed in to UEFA but strictly if one of their squad players picks up a fresh injury and is unable to play in the competition. Should a team wish to make use of this possibility the UEFA medical team will examine the injured player and if approved, the team will the opportunity to name another player.
