Tamas Kadar Selected For Full Hungary Squad

Good news today that 20 year-old Newcastle defender,  Tamas Kadar,  has been selected for the full Hungary squad,  for their friendly game against Lithuania later this month.

Tamas Kadar – called up for the full Hungary squad – for second time

It’s now very possible that Tamas can get his first senior cap for the game at the Stadion Sostoi, Hungary, on Wednesday, November 17th, two weeks tonight.

Tamas talked to the Newcastle official web-site this morning:

“I was called up once before, but I was injured and had to pull out so I’m very happy to be called up again.” “I’ve played for the under-21s on a few occasions but to be called up for the full squad makes me very proud.”

“But what would make me even prouder is to play and win my first cap.” “Whether that will happen against Lithuania or not, I don’t know, but I would be overjoyed if it did. It is a friendly game so I would love a chance to play some part.”  

“But I am only 20, so even to train with the full international set-up will be a great experience for me.” “I’m working very hard in training and I hope to play as many games as I can this season.”

Tamas has been dogged by injury this season so far, and has yet to appear in the Premier League,  although he did play against both Accrington Stanley and last week against Arsenal,  in the Carling Cup,  and  he’s  one of Newcastle’s top young players

The Veszprém, Hungary born youngster has played for all the Hungary Youth teams since 2006,  including 6 appearances for the Hungary U21s, and was signed by Newcastle in January of 2008, when several other top clubs were interested in signing the then 17 year-old 6’2″ defender.

It would be great for Tamas if he can make his debut for his country in two weeks time.

    Good for him and a good sign that our scouting system’s paying off.

    However, we really need to make sure he’s well and truly commited to Newcastle United and his head’s not turned when he’s with the Hungarian squad.

    Anyway glad to see he’s progressing and I did like the look of him when he played a good few games last year. We do have a fair amt of good prospects coming through now, lets hope they keep developing this way
