• Born in the Hungarian city of Miskolc, Huszti's first club was Budapest giants Ferencváros, though he did not make the grade there until after a season on loan to Sopron in 2003/04.

• Made his international debut for Hungary while at Sopron and marked it in style by scoring a 90th-minute winning penalty in a 3-2 defeat of Japan in Zalaegerszeg.

• Established himself as a skilful left-footed playmaker with both Fradi and Hungary in 2004/05 before leaving his homeland for France and a fraught season with Metz, who finished bottom of Ligue 1 and were relegated.

• Enjoyed better fortunes in Germany with Hannover, where he spent the next three seasons; finished 2007/08 as the club's joint-top marksman with ten goals.

• Joined Zenit in February 2009 and scored less than two minutes into his debut in a UEFA Cup game against VfB Stuttgart (2-1); won the Russian title in his second season but was only a bit-part player in the success and decided to retire from international football in September 2010 with 51 caps and seven goals.
