Hungary are preparing for their upcoming campaign in the 2024 Euros

It’s Ireland vs Hungary on Wednesday, a friendly International Friendly match between two of European nations ahead of Euro 2024. The European Football Championship is about to start in some time and this is like the warm-up for the teams to test themselves against some formidable opponents of the league. Also Ireland will be having matches for the Nations League. Nevertheless, Ireland hasn’t qualified for the second round of the European Championship, but Hungary has moved to the second round with most points in the group. 

Both teams have a very rich football history, as they both started playing almost at the same time. Despite this, Hungary’s current FIFA ranking is way ahead that of Ireland. Hungary are ranked 24th, whereas Ireland are in 60th rank. However, one cannot underestimate the might of any of the team, as they both are capable of posing a reasonable threat to their opponents. Ireland has given mixed results in their last few matches, whereas Hungary hasn’t lost any of their last few matches.
