(Watch video) Dominik Szoboszlai once again excels as Cody Gakpo raises a penalty claim.

In Sunday’s international matches, Cody Gakpo scored once more for the Netherlands while Dominik Szoboszlai continued to steal the show for Hungary.


Gakpo scored the first goal of his 2022–23 season against Greece earlier in the week, and then his penalty helped the Netherlands defeat the Republic of Ireland on the road after a comeback.

Following the summer transfers of Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister, Liverpool’s roster is already stacked with penalty shooters, but Gakpo might be the most recent to declare his candidacy.


Adam Idah scored the opening goal for the hosts from 12 yards out for him and his captain Virgil van Dijk, but Gakpo’s equalizer and Wout Weghorst’s subsequent second-half goal were enough for the visitors to secure the three points.


Caoimhin Kelleher, who has accumulated 10 senior caps since making his debut two years ago, watched from the bench for the Republic of Ireland.


Additionally, Szoboszlai put on another impressive performance as he guided Hungary to a 1-1 friendly draw with the Czech Republic.

Following his beautiful free-kick against Serbia three days earlier, the Hungary captain blasted a huge long pass that drew the eye of supporters online.

Other news includes Kostas Tsimikas missing Greece’s 5-0 hammering of Gibraltar due to a ban and Jayden Danns captaining the England U18s as they lost 2-1 to Portugal in the most recent round of friendlies.


Importantly, there were no injuries to note from Sunday’s play, and everyone is expected to arrive back in Kirkby this weekend for the start of club football.


On Monday night, more Liverpool young players will be on display. Stefan Bajcetic, Ben Doak, Harvey Elliott, Melkamu Frauendorf, and Lewis Koumas are all interested in playing for their respective nations.


In Portugal’s most recent Euro 2024 qualifying match against Luxembourg, Diogo Jota will also be expecting to get some action.
