With Hungary’s sensational qualification for the 2016 Futsal European Championship in Belgrade next February still fresh in the memory following September’s dramatic play-off win against Romania, the draw has been made for the tournament finals proper. Hungary have been drawn in Group B with six-time European champions Spain from the first group of seeds and twice European Championship finalists Ukraine from the second group. Hungary had been placed in the third group of seeds alongside Slovenia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
On the draw, Hungary head coach Sito Rivera commented that “every group is well balanced; here, there are already no easy opponents. We will try to emerge with respect from the clash against Spain while against Ukraine we would like to spring a surprise. Qualification from the group depends on great performance and we will give everything in the interests of this.”
