Sándor Egervári named Hungary's new top football coach
Hungary's football federation has named Sándor Egervári as the new coach of the national team, replacing Erwin Koeman.
Football federation president Sándor Csányi announced on Friday the appointment of 60-year-old Sándor Egervári to coach the national football team of Hungary.
Egervári, who led Hungary to the bronze medal at the 2009 Under-20 World Cup in Egypt, will lead the nationals for the first time in a friendly against England on August 11 at Wembley.
Hungary won only seven matches under Koeman since May 2008 and hasn't qualified for a major tournament since the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.
As a coach, Egervári has also won three Hungarian team championships, in 1999 and 2003 with MTK and in 2000 with Dunaferr. (AP)
