Headlines will be grabbed by our No.8 for the fact that he managed to get himself on the scoresheet against Lithuania but his performance was much more than that. Proving a constant threat from set-pieces, the 22-year-old nearly scored from a free-kick before showing off his passing range and with the game at 2-0 to the opposition – our midfielder turned the game on its head.
After his goal from the spot, it was the former RB Leipzig man’s corner that saw the game leveled up but unfortunately that was how the match ended as well. Szoboszlai took his club form to the international stage with Hungary, grabbing a goal from the penalty spot against Lithuania. But his impact went beyond the goal, as he also provided the assist on an equalizing goal with a well-taken corner. While Hungary were unable to find a winner, Szoboszlai’s all-around performance showed why he has already become a fan favorite at Liverpool. His dead ball ability and creative instincts are translating well both for his country and his new club.
