Euro 2016: Five players who can decide the outcome of Group F
We look at the 5 players who can lead their teams through from Group F, and into the knockout stages.
Group F is one of the quieter groups of the lot. While the teams on show aren’t the greatest, the quality of some of the players is of the highest level. Boasting Champions League winners and Bundesliga champion(s), the group consists of 8th ranked Portugal, 10th ranked Austria, 20th ranked Hungary and 34th ranked Iceland. With all four teams having a reasonable chance to progress to the knockout stages, Group F is amongst the most exciting. Here, we take a look at five players who can have a say on the outcome of the group:
5: Balazs Dzsudzsak (Hungary)
Having qualified for their first Euros since 1972, Hungary must make full use of their opportunity as you don’t know when they’ll play at a major tournament next. However, Hungary have a fearless leader, and role model in the form of Balazs Dzsudzsak - A right winger who has been in decent form for club and country, although he scored only one goal during qualifying.
Now on the big stage, it’s up to the Hungarian skipper to lead from the front and make an impact. A set piece expert who is lethal with free kicks, he can also run riot around defenders with his exceptional dribbling skills.
On his day, Dzsudzsak is a force to be reckoned with and will have the burden on carrying the weight of the entire nation on his shoulders.
