In the goal young Bíró is added to the two experienced goalkeepers, meanwhile 21 years old Planéta comes to the squad from Győr, to be the only lefthanded backplayer of the national team. Ex Győr and HYpo player, Temes could be an option on the centre back with absence of Görbicz, but rookie Tóth (from Győr”s second club )could make it to the ECh at an age of 18.
