Dominik Szoboszlai, the most talented Hungarian football player at the moment, scored his first goal with FC Red Bull Salzburg this past weekend while wearing a pair of shoes featuring the Hungarian cockade.
On Sunday, the 18-year-old player was given a chance to show off his skills in a match against FC Wacker Innsbruck. While he was playing in Austria, people in Hungary celebrated the anniversary of the Revolution of 1848 on March 15th. Szoboszlai had not forgotten about the national holiday, however, and paid tribute to it on the field in a notable, yet understated way.
After scoring his first goal with the team while wearing the special shoes, what began as a unique celebration of history ended as football history in the making. Szoboszlai expressed his gratitude for the opportunity in an Instagram post: “It is an honor to wear these unique shoes on Sunday.”
