Hungary are drawn in Group G for the Euro 2024 qualifier, alongside Bulgaria, Lithuania, Montenegro and Serbia. National Eleven began their preparations for the Euro 2024 qualifiers with two friendlies in November, when they played out a 1-1 draw against Luxembourg, before defeating Greece. Magyars got the better of Greece courtesy of goals from Roland Sallai and Zsolt Kalmar. Prior to those games, Marco Rossi’s men had an impressive UEFA Nations League campaign in 2022, finishing second in League A Group 3, with 10 points to their name from six games, ahead of Germany and England, and just a solitary point behind Italy. Rossi’s men recorded impressive wins against England (4-0) and Germany (1-0) during the Nations League campaign. Meanwhile, Hungary will kickoff their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a home-match against Bulgaria on Monday night.
Estonia, on the other hand, are drawn in Group F, with Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium and Sweden. Blueshirts will begin their qualifying campaign with an away-match against Austria on March 27. Estonia are in pretty good, having won two of their last three games. Last time out, Blueshirts edged past Finland in a friendly, thanks to Martin Miller’s lone goal six minutes from time. Prior to that, they were held to a 1-1 draw by Iceland, despite taking the lead through Sergee Zenjov on the stroke of half-time. Meanwhile, Estonia have recorded only one win against Hungary in six encounters, and that was way back in 2003, while four of the last five meetings have ended in defeats.
