Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Euro 2016 Preview - Group F: Hungary

Continuing on with Group F now and Hungary: 

Nickname: "The Magical Magyars"

Absurd FIFA ranking: 20th

Coach: German cone-dropper Bernd Storck

Match Schedule: 

June 14 - Hungary v. Austria (Bordeaux, 12pm EST, ESPN)
June 17 - Hungary v. Iceland (Marseille, 12pm ESPN)
June 21 - Hungary v. Portugal (Lyon, 12pm, ESPN)

Prospects: Hungary haven't enjoyed any footballing success since the 1950s and they're unlikely to enjoy much this summer. The Magyars are lucky to be included in the worst group of the competition, which should mean that they'll plod their way into the Round of 16.

Key Player: Former Fulham and WBA midfielder Zoltan Gera runs this side as a traditional #10.

Youngster to Watch: 22 year-old Werder Bremen midfielder Laszlo Kleinheisler.

Who Will Get the Goals: Bratislava striker Tamas Priskin was the top scorer in qualifiers.

Who Will Get the Cards: Gritty veteran Roland Juhasz is feeling the years.

Prediction: Just edging out Austria into third. Out to Wales in the Round of 16.
