New England Revolution forward Krisztian Nemeth missed Saturday's 2-2 draw vs NYCFC after being called up by his native Hungary for a pair of friendlies during the international break. He's made the most of his time away from the club so far, notching a second half goal in a 3-2 loss to Kazakhstan on Friday.

Making his 33rd cap, Nemeth came on as a halftime substitute at left wing, scoring his 4th all-time goal for the senior team in the 68th minute.

Nemeth debuted for Hungary in 2010 after working his way up the youth ranks. He hopes to make another productive appearance in their final friendly on Tuesday vs Scotland.

Despite a successful European Championship showing in 2016, Hungary failed to qualify for the Russia 2018 World Cup, finishing 3rd in their group, well behind Portugal and Switzerland.

Nemeth has only played 20 minutes this season for New England and has been rumored to be on the trading block.
