Hungary’s National Team Won’t Kneel at Upcoming EURO 2020

The Hungarian national football team won’t kneel before kick-offs during the upcoming EURO 2020 – Hungary’s Football Association (MLSZ) announced in a statement.

– A Hungarian kneels before God, before his homeland, and if he is proposing to his lover. In Hungary, every other instance of kneeling is a culturally foreign act – said Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
