Hungary is writing football history in these days. For the first time since the U-17 Fifa Championship in 1985 Hungary has qualified for a quarter final. Yesterday they played against the runners up from 2007, Czech Republic, and after 90 minutes the score was 1-1. Then after 30 more minutes it was 2-2, and every got ready for penalties. The Hungarian keeper Peter Gulacsi did a great job, and saved 3 out of 6 penalties, and in the end Hungary ended up as winners! Hurray!

This Friday they will meet Italy in the quarter final, so it is only to hope that they will succeed again. If Greece could win the European Championship in 2004, everything is possible in football.
