For the first time in more than 10 years a Hungarian team qualified for the Champions League. DVSC (or Debrecen as most people know the team) managed to qualify with a great result in Sofia and some super goals in Budapest last week.
Now they will face more difficult opponents; Lyon, Fiorentina and Liverpool. All three teams will come to Budapest this fall to face Debrecen, and tickets are also available. Visit our Champions League page for more information about the matches, tickets and so on.
Hungarian soccer is on a good wave, and people are also really curious how the national team will do as they face both Sweden and Portugal in Hungary in the next ten days. If they win both matches, or grab at least 3-4 points they might be in danger of qualifying for the World Championship in 2010 (or at least reach the second place in the group and give them the chance to face another second place team in another group where the winner qualifies for the World Championship).
