Bernd Storck has narrowed down his initial 33-man shortlist to a confirmed 25-man squad for the EURO 2016 qualifiers against Romania at home on 4th September and Northern Ireland away three days later.

28 outfield players and five goalkeepers had made up the squad picked by Mr Storck in his first match as Hungary national team coach and from that list several players promoted from the youth national teams such as Ferencváros’ Ádám Nagy, Honvéd’s Endre Botka and RB Leipzig’s Zsolt Kalmár have remained in his current thoughts. In addition, defender Pedrag Bosnjak of Haladás and midfielder Ádám Bódi of Debreceni VSC have been called into the squad. Well-known names to have been released from the squad include veteran Tamás Hajnal, Roland Szolnoki and József Varga. This final squad will gather together on 31st August to start their preparations.

Mr Storck commented: “For weeks the staff have concentrated on these matches and therefore I am sure that the next ten days will be most beneficial for the squad which gathers. The task is made harder because we are playing the most important match of the year at the start of the season when some of our players have perhaps not since the end of Spring been playing in the most testing of matches. We are constantly preparing though and arrive before these matches in good condition”.
