Popular football magazine FourFourTwo has put together its own dream team from coaching staff currently at EURO 2020. Hungarian football legend, Zoltán Gera, who is working as the assistant coach of the Hungarian national team, has also been included on the impressive list among names such as Thierry Henry and Andriy Shevchenko.
According to the magazine’s Facebook post, the Hungarian midfielder takes the number ten position in the 3–2–1–4 line-up with excellent football players including Ruud van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry, Luis Enrique, Andriy Shevchenko, Didier Deschamps, Frank de Boer, Gareth Southgate, Vedran Ćorluka, and Antti Niemi.
Zoltán Gera’s inclusion is not surprising, for he is arguably one of the best Hungarian players of the last two decades. The 42 year-old was the first and only Hungarian player in the last 28 years to play in a European cup final. In the previous Euro in 2016, his magnificent goal against future champion Portugal was later voted the “Goal of the Tournament” in an UEFA online fan poll. In total, he earned 97 international caps for the Hungarian national team. Gera has been elected Budapest’s official ambassador of Euro 2020. At the moment, he is the assistant coach of the national team and the head coach of the U21 team.
