Hungarian national football team to play against Germany?
According to origo.hu, the Hungarian national football team will play a friendly match against the title-holder Germany in late May to prepare for the European Championship, German daily Sport Bild wrote on Tuesday.
The German newspaper reports that the match will be held in Germany on May 29, but the German Federation (DFB) has not confirmed this information yet. The board of DFB will hold a meeting on Wednesday and, according to Sport Bild, they will decide on the match against the Hungarians there.
The Hungarian team led by Bernd Storck will play against the Croats in the Groupama Arena on March 26. Sandor Csanyi, president of the Hungarian Football Association (MLSZ) told last Wednesday that the national team would play one or two matches – one of them abroad – against a stronger rival, origo.hu wrote.
Hungary played against the Germans most recently on May 29, 2010. Then the Nationalelf won 3-0 in the Puskás Ferenc Stadium. The Hungarian team will play in the European Championship again after a break of 44 years.
The competition begins on June 10. The Hungarians will play against Austria (June 14, Bordeaux), Iceland (June 18, Marseille) and Portugal (June 22, Lyon) in the F group. The Germans will play against the Northern Irish, the Poles and the Ukrainians in the C group, origo.hu told.
