Expectations: Ignore the rankings. The Hungarians are a modest team in a similarly modest group, which also features Portugal, Iceland and Austria. But if the Bernd Storck-coached side manage to escape from Group F, it will be a considerable achievement as they only just qualified for the tournament.

The Hungarians boast few star names and are unlikely to give too many sleepless nights to their much-hyped group opponents Portugal, who ought to top the table. It will, however, be nice to see the one-time giants of European football back on its grandest stage following a lengthy absence from major tournaments.

Manager: Storck was a Borussia Dortmund stalwart in the 1980s as a player, but has enjoyed a more nomadic career since he turned his hand to coaching. The 53-year-old German served as the assistant manager at Hertha Berlin, Wolfsburg and Dortmund before he became the number one at Kazakh side FC Alma-Ata in 2008. Since then, he has coached Kazakhstan's national side before being handed the reins of Hungary in 2015.

IBTimes UK prediction: Group stages – Despite having the good fortune of being drawn in a particularly feeble group, Hungary lack the star power and experience to navigate their way to the second round. They are unlikely to leave much of an impression of Euro 2016 before making an early exit.
