Hungary boss Rossi hails win over England as a 'miracle in football'

‘When I die I am sure that in stadiums in Hungary there will be one minute of silence’: Marco Rossi says he has left a legacy after thumping 4-0 Nations League win over England – with boss hailing it as a ‘miracle in football’

  • Hungary thrashed England 4-0 in the Nations League at Molineux on Tuesday
  • It was Hungary’s second victory over England in the competition after a 1-0 win 
  • The result was also the first time an away team had scored four goals against England since the Hungarians themselves won 6-3 in 1953 

Hungary produced a ‘miracle’ by defeating England 4-0 in the Nations League on Tuesday but they must keep their feet on the ground as results like this do not come around too often, their coach Marco Rossi has said.

Roland Sallai scored twice at Molineux Stadium as Hungary handed England their worst home defeat in 94 years.

It was Hungary’s second victory over England in the competition after their 1-0 win in Budapest earlier this month.

‘I am sure England are really among the best in the world and the favourites for the world championship, so being able to have this result tonight is something that sounds like a miracle,’ Rossi told reporters.

‘If a miracle in football happens, it is difficult it could be repeated. So we are happy but we need to keep our foot on the ground.’

The result was also the first time an away team had scored four goals against England since the Hungarians themselves won 6-3 in 1953.

Rossi said he had made his mark as coach.

‘When I took the job, I said to our (Hungary’s) president and prime minister that I would like to leave a sign of my presence before leaving,’ he said.

‘I think at this point, the sign could be seen… when I die I am sure that in the stadiums in Hungary there will be one whole minute of silence. This is a great achievement for me.’

Rossi believes he has left a legacy within Hungarian football now after beating England twice
