The 23-year-old has made 38 appearances for Hungary so far, netting 10 goals from midfield, and we're backing the former RB Leipzig man to star against Turkey on Friday.

Hungary captain set to shine against Turkey

Many see this game being decided in midfield and particularly the battle between Szoboszlai and Turkey's playmaker Hakan Çalhanoğlu who has made 82 appearances for his country, scoring 17 times, and is seven years older than the Hungarian star.
