National football team enjoying intensive training in Austria
mlsz.hu – This week’s programme has included a morning run and two training sessions for the national team squad members.
Those members of the extended Hungarian national team squad who are based in Hungary arrived to their Austrian training camp on Tuesday evening and began their programme with a 40-minute run beginning at 7:30 am on Wednesday morning. After a short rest the players reported for training at 11am, the session also involving ball work. Following lunch and a short relaxation period the players were back out on the field for afternoon training which comprised of speed, strength and running exercises.
By afternoon the squad had been bolstered by the arrival of Krisztián Németh, who has been recovering from a minor recent injury but is now back to fitness.
“The players had a physically testing day [on Wednesday]”, head coach Bernd Storck told mlsz.hu. “The morning was particularly intensive but the squad put in some very good work, so I’m happy with them. The weather in the morning was kind to us, in the afternoon it was different, the heavy rain making things more difficult. Apart from the inclement afternoon weather we had a very positive day”.
The training sessions continued throughout the rest of the week, added to which there was a 4-0 training-match victory over the Hungary Under 21 team (see separate article). Then on Saturday the squad was further boosted by the arrivals of provisional squad members Richárd Guzmics, Ádám Szalai and Zoltán Gera. Training will continue this morning.
