They could have met in the capital of the Czech Republic this year as well.

Unfortunately, a year ago in Finland, he unsuccessfully won the decisive match against Austria. Five times against the Hungarian national team, but in the end we were two points behind our neighbor's name, and one behind our name, so the two teams this year can only meet in a friendly match.
