Hungary primed for opening night

Hungary's futsal team have been given tips how to play before a big crowd by concert pianist Adam Gyorgy, who will entertain fans at the UEFA European Futsal Championship opening ceremony.

Hungary's futsal team have been given tips how to play before a big crowd by concert pianist Adam Gyorgy, who will entertain fans at the UEFA European Futsal Championship opening ceremony on 19 January.

Piano virtuoso
The 27-year-old, who has earned comparisons with Hungarian composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt, met the players on Sunday and also demonstrated his football skills in a training session. Coach Mihály Kozma and his side are entering the final stages of their preparations for the tournament, which they will kick off as hosts with a game against Azerbaijan at Budapest's Papp László Arena. Gyorgy and Séan, the reigning Football Freestyle World Champion, are billed to star at the opening ceremony, and having played at venues like New York's famous Carnegie Hall, the pianist took time out to tell his nation's futsal team how best to prepare for big performances.
