The captain of the Hungarian national team, Marco Rossi, said that Saturday was one of the most beautiful days of his coaching career after the draw against the French national team. But this is not the first time he has said this while working in Hungary. He first said this when he became champion with Honvéd by defeating Fehérvár, and then since 2018 he has taken part in many unforgettable matches as captain of the national team.

1st win and 2nd place in the NL group
It is believed that the beginning of a long journey is always the first step. Well, this is exaggerated for the period of Fed captain Marco Rossi: if the first victory in the second match of the national team had not been won, then he probably did not participate in the European Championship, and today he may not be the head of the Hungarian team .
In the summer of 2018, he took over the management of the team in such a way that in that year we did not win any of the four matches that George Likens controlled, but rather lost three times, all three times at home (from Kazakhstan, Scotland and Belarus). Then in September, Rossi and I came off the bench in Finland with a score of 1-0. In November, Greece was also defeated by 1–0, followed by 3–3 in Estonia. After these results, Rossi might not have experienced January as captain, had it not been for September, three days after the match in Finland, the home team against Greece 2-1.
For the first time in a long time, the Hungarian national team played well against the Greeks, even after the match was played behind closed doors due to an earlier penalty kick. At the end of a beautiful attack, we took the lead for the first time in the national team with a successful goal from Sallai Roland, and although the Greeks managed to equalize, László Kleinheisler managed to fight back to win with a bombshell.
1. Hungary – Greece 2-1
In general, we did not start the Nations League well, because we scored only four points in four matches, but the match against the Greeks gave hope for a better continuation, and at home, the Estonians first and then the National League. The group won, like the Hungarian national team, and we also beat the participating Finns to 2-0 in Groupama Arena, with one goal each by Ádám Szalai and dám Nagy. Scored after Kalmar Salai’s brilliant corner, Nagy remains the only goal in the national team. This success was vital because (and Greece’s defeat to the Estonians in Hungary) put us second in League C – if we didn’t have second place, there would be no European Championship qualifiers later, and there would be no Hungarian European Championship.
2. Hungary – Finland 2-0
Great Adam Gold
Founded by Adam Szalay
It is difficult to rank the different victories, but if the undefeated rivals under Marco Rossi are ranked on the basis of strength, then Hungary’s 2019 victory over the silver medalists of the World Cup in Hungary will certainly be on top. The value of the success is further increased by the fact that we managed to turn 0-1 with the songs of Ádám Szalai and Máté Pátkai, and in a moment of psychological significance, a few days ago in Trnava, at the opening of the European Championship qualifiers, we were 2-0.
3. Hungary vs Croatia 2-1
The development that started with Rossi was also demonstrated by the 1-0 defeat of the Welshmen in the semi-finals of the previous European Championships, even if we did not go far after being twice lost by the Slovaks and failing to. Rematch in Cardiff.
4. Hungary-Wales 1-0
When you change something…
In the fall of 2020, the Hungarian national team, which has been playing a stable 3-5-2 system since September last year, showed a completely new face, and then, after the domestic defeat to the Russians, did not lose 11 matches. The streak that was now broken began at the European Championships. But then, with NL’s 1-0 win in Turkey, the undefeated alien streak began, which has continued ever since. Turkey’s success with a free kick from Dominic Zuboszlai laid the foundation for last year’s magical fall performance, and we were able to win for the first time in that match after three away defeats, and for the first time in a long time we won. An away match against a team higher than us.
5. Turkey-Hungary 0-1
And after the victory over the Turks, we were almost able to travel to the first European Championship qualifier against Bulgaria, for which we had to fight without Dominic Zuboszlai, because Red Bull Salzburg did not allow the midfielder to enter the match due to the coronavirus epidemic. However, Zsolt Kalmár scored, Who replaced him, a free kick goal, Willi Orbán and Nikolics Nemanja also scored, so we played 3-1 and the fight could come against Iceland…
6. Bulgaria – Hungary 1-3
& amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; itself’; amp; amp; amp; gt; Your virus test was positive. Plus, we were already at a disadvantage in the eleventh minute. Nevertheless, the team showed incredible mental strength from 0-1, scoring goals in the 88th and 92nd minutes, and Loic Nego and Dominik Szoboszlai, who were replaced in turn, managed to translate and earned the right to appear in the European Championship. . & amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; /p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; itself; amp; amp; amp; gt; & amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; itself’; amp; amp; amp; gt&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; itself; amp; amp; lt; b & amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; b & amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; & amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; & amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; itself’; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; gt. 7.

Without exaggeration in the qualifiers against Iceland, it was the most important meeting of the Russian captain’s tenure, except that the captain could not sit on the bench because his virus test was positive before the match. Plus, we were already at a disadvantage in the eleventh minute. However, the team was able to translate from 0-1, and scored in the 88th and 92nd minutes with incredible mental strength, through a blow from Loic Nego and Dominic Zuboszlai, and won the European Championship title.
7. Hungary – Iceland 2-1
The point is for me
And in the European Championships she could have been crowned almost three years, with the world champions tied with the French. That is, in a Russian era, among the top four teams in the last two major tournaments, Wales (2016, World Cup semi-finals) and Croatia (2018, World Cup final) are at home from France (2016, World Cup final; 2018, World Cup winning world) as well as the Hungarian national team. It is also worth looking at the scorers in the aforementioned matches, since almost every major player in Russia’s time was able to score in the listed matches – Attila Viola’s goal on Saturday also fits well into the squad, as the defender was already in Rossi’s first match against the Finns.
8. Hungary – France 1-1
Championship title with the defense of the homeland – began …
Although in our article we considered the unforgettable successes and matches of Marco Rossi with the national team, it must be added: in order to become a federal captain, the 2017 championship title won with Honved was a must. He took the gold with his team four years ago, on May 27, by defeating Videoton 1-0 in a league final match in the final round of NB I. Perhaps at that time he said for the first time in Hungary that he was going through one of the happiest days of his life – he lived Some of them have since, although he probably didn’t think that gold would be the end of something but the beginning of something and, after four years with the Hungarian national team, he’d stop the current world champion as well.
+1 Battle Power. Polished – White Castle 1-0
And the story continues! On Wednesday, 2014 world champions Germany will be the opponent in Munich, when the eighth European final is already at stake.
