Hungary's U-17 football team qualifies for World Cup

For the first time since 1985, Hungarians will be able to support their national football team at the U-17 World Cup this autumn

Hungarians will be able to support their national football team at the U-17 World Cup this autumn, the first time the team has made a World Cup draw since 1985.

Team Hungary nudged out Belgium in their qualifying match with a spectacular 5-4 penalty shoot-out win. The game took place in Ireland, as part of the European Championship.

The under 17s team earned a respectable overall fifth place in the Championship, securing their entry into the upcoming U-17 World Cup in Brazil.

The feat is of historical significance, marking the first time a Hungarian team has played in the World Cup in more than three decades.
