“Go Hungary!”: US Ambassador Joins Football Fans In Support Of Hungary At Euro2016


United States Ambassador to Hungary Colleen Bell has voiced her support for the Hungarian national team at the 2016 UEFA European Championship in a video uploaded yesterday to the embassy’s Facebook page.

The footage of Ms. Bell clad in Hungarian colours was recorded at the statue of the late world-famous Hungarian footballer Ferenc Puskás in Budapest’s District III.

The Ambassador finished off the 1:05-minute clip, which has since been viewed 235 000 times, with the familiar chant “Hajrá Magyarország”, or “Go Hungary!”

The Hungarian national football team will play its first match against neighbouring Austria on Tuesday, 14 June, at 18:00 Central European Time.

The national football team sensationally qualified for the European Championship in 2015 for the first time in 44 years.
