Inter prospect in line for Italy test

Hungary could yet give 19-year-old Attila Filkor a chance to make an impact in UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying after selecting him for their Italy friendly.

Hungary could yet give 19-year-old Attila Filkor a chance to make an impact in UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying after selecting him for the friendly against Italy on 22 August.

Inter capture
The attack-minded Filkor, his country's Under-19 captain, shot to prominence in his homeland after signing for FC Internazionale Milano a year ago and could now get his first international start against the country where he plies his trade. He has been part of the Inter squad this pre-season, including a prestigious friendly tournament hosted by Arsenal FC last month. Filkor, who made a substitute appearance against Latvia in February, is one of 20 players in Peter Varhidi's squad for the fixture in Budapest that will serve as a warm-up for the Group C qualifying matches at home to Bosnia-Herzegovina and away to Turkey next month.

Hungary squad
Goalkeepers: Márton Fülöp (Sunderland AFC), János Balogh (Debreceni VSC).

Defenders: Zoltán Szélesi (FC Energie Cottbus), Csaba Csizmadia (SV Mattersburg), Béla Balogh (Colchester United FC), Tamás Vaskó (Bristol City FC), Roland Juhász (RSC Anderlecht), Vilmos Vanczák (FC Sion).

Midfielders: Ádám Vass (Brescia Calcio), Balázs Tóth (KRC Genk), Leandro de Almeida (Debreceni VSC), Dániel Tőzsér (AEK Athens FC), Attila Filkor (FC Internazionale Milano), Tamás Hajnal (Karlsruher SC), Ákos Buzsáky (Plymouth Argyle FC).

Forwards: Zoltán Gera (West Bromwich Albion FC), Tamás Priskin (Watford FC), Róbert Feczesin (Brescia Calcio), Balázs Dzsudzsák (Debreceni VSC), Péter Halmosi (Plymouth Argyle FC).
