One of Marco Rossi’s greatest explorers has evolved with the national team, he is now a basic man, but he still considers it an honor to invite the national team and the coat of arms.

The Sanchoja of the Hungarian national team is not as supporting as Don Quixote’s weapon carrier. Attila Szalai is a very leading player, the defender of Fenerbahce has grown into an absolute fellow in Marco Rossi’s team and will be one of the hottest porters in the European football market for the upcoming winter transfer season. The defender made his debut in the Hungarian national team almost two years ago.

“I have developed with the national team over the last two years and it is a huge pride for me to take the steps together with the team” – The defender told MOL Team, who made his first appearance on the stadium against Uruguay in November 2019 with Marco Rossi.

“As the team made it to the European Championships and reached the A-League of the Nations League, so did I in every element of the game. Whether I look at the defensive phase, the technical aspect, the tactical maturity, I feel from week to week that I can give more and more to my teams, and I’m extremely proud of that. Of course, this is not the only reason why the national team occupies a prominent place in my heart, ”Sancho added with a smile.

A left-handed qualifier series

The Hungarian national team is running for the last two World Cup qualifiers in such a way that it no longer has a chance to compete for the World Championship. Ours will close the series against San Marino (Friday, 8:45 p.m.) in Budapest and then Poland (Monday, 8:45 p.m.), and Fener’s defender answered without question whether it was a difficult task as a player to find motivation for a two-stakes match.

“On behalf of the whole team, I can say that the motivation comes from the national team performance, not the stakes of a given match. “It is a great honor to represent the country, there is no friendly match in the coat of arms that would not have a bet. definitely.

However, not only did the qualifying series go badly in terms of results, but the positive mood surrounding the team also changed, with badgers coming out, and this, among other things, Captain Marco Rossi took to heart.

“I don’t think there was a fan who was more disappointed than us after the match against the two Albanians, for example. Of course, the reactions reach us as well, and it hurt me that the results of the last two years were forgotten by some in the blink of an eye, but that would have only dragged ourselves down if we had sunk into self-pity. “I consider myself a mentally strong player, I am able to get over a worse match and focus on the next task, but I have not had too much criticism. ”

“We scored six points against Albania, which became zero. This, of course, went badly for everyone, but then we had a bravely draw with a good game organized in England, and that tipped the company back in the locker room. Anyway, I am motivated by the high – in some cases really exaggerated – expectations of the team, and I am proud that the fans are able to do it. ”

“Everything has a good side, you just have to look for it sometimes. The fact that the fans stand by us and believe in us is not a coincidence at all. We’ve done a lot for it to be that way, and while we’re sorry that for some, a bad match is enough to lose their confidence, we know that the majority will stand by us even if things don’t go as planned. ”

You don’t have to tie!

In the last two rounds, we have an easy and a very difficult task ahead of us. Defeating San Marino at home is a must, but even a draw in Poland would be a great result, but Sancho would not sign in advance.

“Let’s keep the goal to six points” the defender said with a smile. “Obviously we are aware of the strength of Poland, but based on the fact that we not only played a good match with them in Budapest, but we also had a serious chance of winning, the team would not sign the draw in advance. We may be happy with one point, but it won’t be until after the match. ”

“By the way, the match in Budapest was probably our best match in the whole qualifying series, and it was really just a hair’s breadth away from winning. But I say not only that we want to win in Warsaw, but also because we want to win every match. ”
