Willi Orban

A defensive stalwart, Orban’s presence in the backline adds strength and stability. His experience in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig equips him to handle high-pressure situations, making him a cornerstone of Hungary’s defense.

Managerial Prowess

Marco Rossi, appointed in 2018, has transformed the Hungary National Team. Under his guidance, Hungary qualified for both Euro 2020 and Euro 2024, showcasing a disciplined and resilient style of play.
