BAD DAY: The youngest captain in Euro’s history Dominik Szoboszlai created 1 Assist, 2 Big chances , as his nation was unable to have a good opening start in a 3-1 defeat to Switzerland

Dominik Szoboszlai, a Hungarian midfielder, made history by donning the captain’s armband during the EURO tournament match against Switzerland.

The Hungarian national team will face the Swiss national team in the opening event of EURO 2024. Both teams deployed their most talented players during this match. Coach Marco Rossi awarded midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai the captain’s insignia for the Hungarian national team, and he was able to participate from the outset.


Consequently, Szoboszlai was duly inducted into the annals of the EURO tournaments. Consequently, the Liverpool player became the youngest commander in the history of the European Championship at the age of 23 years, 7 months, and 21 days.

From November 2022, Szoboszlai will assume the role of captain for the Hungarian team. At that time, this midfielder also established a record for the Hungarian national team by wearing the captain’s insignia at the age of 22. A new record was officially set by the Liverpool midfielder at this year’s EURO.


Speaking at a recent press conference, Szoboszlai said: “A few days ago, I learned that I will be the youngest captain of all time at EURO. This is a great honor for me, and I would like to thank Marco Rossi for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to lead the team to attend EURO.”

Szoboszlai is not only the leader but also the talisman of the Hungarian team. All of their attacks must go through the feet of a star on the Liverpool payroll. Coach Rossi assigned Szoboszlai a role of freedom of movement because he felt it suited him best.

“I think that in this team, Dominik is recognized as the leader of the team. Not only because he has leadership qualities but also because of his skills and especially his position on the field. We are playing a more liberal style of football, and Dominik is a player who, along with many others, is free to go where he feels he can go,” coach Rossi said.

However, the Hungarian team did not play impressively on the day Szoboszlai entered history. Right in the first half of the match against Switzerland, Hungary had to concede two goals. Szoboszlai personally did not play well in the first 45 minutes.
