Resurgence of Hungarian football?

The Hungarian national football team played a friendly game against the Czech Republic a few days ago. They played a brilliant game and went on to win the game 2-1. In recent years, Hungarian football has shown some promise. There are some talented young players who are now representing Hungary on the national team. It has been decades since Hungarian football was a dominant force on the international stage.

In the last two decades, Hungary was unable to even qualify for any major international competition (World Cup, European Cup). The only competition that they did qualify for was Olympic soccer at the Atlanta Summer Olympics in 1996. The 1990s proved to be the worst decade in recent memory for the Hungarian national football team as they suffered many defeats. The recent performances by the national team continue to give Hungarians hope that they will once again be on top of the footballing world!
