Between 2003 and 2012, striker Tamas Priskin plied his trade (with varying degrees of success) with a whole host of Championship sides, including Watford, Preston, Ipswich, QPR, Swansea and Derby. However, on Sunday night, the Czech-born forward netted arguably the most important goal of his career for Hungary, in their Euro 2016 play-off 2nd leg against Norway.

With the score 0-0 on the night in Budapest (and 1-0 on aggregate for the hosts), Priskin moved into the Norwegian where he wrong-footed a couple of defenders before unleashing an outstanding effort which rocketed into the top corner of Ørjan Nyland’s goal…

The cracker from the Slovan Bratislava man would ultimately help Hungary, via a 2-1 win on the night and a 3-1 aggregate score, to their first major finals appearance since 1986…

    To be fair to Priskin, as soon as we had a manager at Watford he didn’t just want to launch balls at his head ( * looks at Aidy Boothroyd* ) he turned into a very, very useful striker. His partnership with Tommy Smith at the tale end of the 08/09 season was ridiculous, essentially consisting of Smith through ball>Priskin>goal.

    Then we sold him because we needed every penny we could get. Shame, as him, Smith, Tom Cleverly & Danny Graham would’ve made a very useful front 4.
