George Leekens
George Leekens has taken over the Hungary national team.

Former Belgium and Algeria coach George Leekens was appointed Hungary manager on Monday.

The Hungarian Football Federation gave Leekens a two-year contract to the end of qualifying for the 2020 European Championship, with the option of a six-month extension if the team qualify.

The federation said Leekens will assume his post after Hungary's two friendlies in November, when the team will be led by interim coach Zoltan Szelesi. Former coach Bernd Storck left the job two weeks ago.

Jose Fonte relishing being part of Portugal Euro 2016 squad

Jose Fonte is on the brink of helping Portugal to the Euro 2016 final, four years on from watching their last semifinal at home without so much as a Premier League appearance to his name.

Didier Deschamps' side go into the tournament in fine form -- they have an 90 percent win rate in 2015-16 (9-1) -- and boast some of the continent's finest attacking talent.

Antoine Griezmann was a key performer as Atletico Madrid reached the Champions League final (he also scored a goal every 139 minutes in La Liga) while West Ham United's Dimitri Payet was shortlisted for the Premier League Player of the Year award thanks to the finest season of his career.

Manchester United's Anthony Martial (age 20) scored 17 times in his debut season in England and Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman (age 19) completed more dribbles (45) than anyone else in the Bundesliga.

At the other end of the pitch, however, things appear less rosy. Deschamps has had a welter of problems casting a shadow over their chances as the defensive part of the team has suffered a series of setbacks.
