Rossi relishes Hungary’s ‘miracle’ win over England

Hungary pulled off a “miracle” by beating England 4-0 in the Nations League on Tuesday, but they need to keep their feet on the ground as results like this don’t come around too often, said coach Marco Rossi.

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

It was Hungary’s second win against England in this competition following their 1-0 win in Budapest earlier this month.

“I’m sure England really are among the best in the world and favorites for the World Cup, so to be able to get that result tonight is something like a miracle,” Rossi told reporters.

“When a miracle happens in football, it’s difficult to repeat it. So we’re happy, but we have to keep our feet on the ground.”

The result was also the first time an away team had scored four goals against England since Hungary’s 6-3 win in 1953.

Rossi said he made a name for himself as a coach.

“When I accepted the job, I told our (Hungary’s) President and Prime Minister that I would like to leave a mark of my presence before I leave,” he said.

“I think at that point the sign was there… When I die, I’m sure there will be silence in the stadiums in Hungary for a full minute. That is a great achievement for me.”
