Liverpool star set to break 64-year record at Euro 2024

Liverpool star set to break 64-year record at Euro 2024

Liverpool star Dominik Szoboszlai is set to make history at Euro 2024.

Liverpool have ten players turning out at the imminent Euro 2024 tournament, with three captaining their respective nations.

Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Dominik Szoboszlai are all captains but it is the latter who looks set to break a record which has lasted 64 years.

The former RB Leipzig man was given the armband back in November 2022, having been selected by manager Marco Rossi and his teammates.

He had only recently turned 22 when he received the ultimate honour of captaining his country.

Hungary, who are in Group A alongside Germany, Scotland and Switzerland, are making their sixth appearance in the European Championships.

And Szoboszlai is set to make history when he leads Hungary out at the RheinEnergieStadion against the Swiss on Saturday.

He is in line to become the youngest ever captain in Euros history since the inaugural tournament in 1960.

Should he start in Hungary's first fixture as expected, Szoboszlai will be 23 years, seven months and 21 days old - enough to record a historic feat.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, he said: “A few days ago, I found out that I’ll be the youngest team captain of all time at the European Championship; this is a great honour for me and at the same time, I would like to thank Marco Rossi for trusting me and for giving me the opportunity to lead the team to the European Championship.

Szoboszlai is not only the leader but also Hungary's talisman and everything goes through him.

Rossi gives him a free role to go wherever he wants to as he feels it suits him best.

"I think that in this squad, Dominik is recognized as the leader of the team,” Rossi said, as per @BenBocsak.

“Not only because he is the captain, but because of his skills and especially his position on the pitch.”

“We are playing a kind of football that is less positional and more relational- and Dominik is a player, together with many others, is free to go where he feels he can go.”
