The young Hungarian supertalent beat World Cup-winning Argentine goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez with a shot from the edge of the area after a corner, giving the lead to Liverpool. The game ended in a 3–0 victory for the Reds against Aston Villa. This was the first time a Hungarian player scored in the English Premier League in over a decade.
The 22-year-old Hungary National Team captain has played through all three Premier League games for his title-challenging Liverpool side this season. The British media is also impressed with his performance. It’s been a long time since a player from Hungary has played such a prominent role at such a prestigious club.
It would have been too great of a risk for Szoboszlai to go against his teammates and refuse to take a knee on his Premier League debut. While playing for the Hungarian National Team, however, he did just that: he, along with his teammates, refused to kneel before the two Nations League games against England in 2022, and they won both times.
The 19-year-old left back is the second Hungarian player to be signed by a Premier League side for a high transfer fee this summer. Kerkez joined Bournemouth only weeks after Dominik Szoboszlai’s transfer to Liverpool was announced.
22-year-old Hungarian National Team captain Dominik Szoboszlai has just been signed by the six-time Champions League title winner Premier League team Liverpool FC. The English club bought him from the German Bundesliga team RB Leipzig for €70 million, by far the highest transfer fee ever paid for a Hungarian football player.
The Hungarian National Team’s 22-year-old captain has been valued at €73.8 million by the International Centre for Sports Studies’ (CIES) Football Observatory, making him the 50th most expensive player in the world. This is all amidst rumours about his move from RB Leipzig to the Premier League team Newcastle United.
