Defender Szilveszter Hangya, midfielder Zsolt Kalmár and attacking midfielder Dominik Szoboszla miss out due to injury.

Goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi and centre back Willi Orbán have plenty of experience in the Bundesliga. Orban should partner Attila Szalai and Ádám Lang in central defence.

Bristol City’s Ádám Nagy anchors the midfield with Ádám Szalai likely to start in attack after scoring 23 goals in 71 internationals.
