Hungary head coach Sandor Egervari has recalled Fulham midfielder Zoltan Gera for their friendly with England next week.
Gera retired from international football last year after being excluded by Erwin Koeman for arriving late to a team meeting.
However, following Koeman's exit last month, Gera is now back in the fold and is set to line up against England at Wembley.
Egervari has attempted to pick a squad based on fitness rather than current form with so many of Europe's leagues yet to begin.
"Lots of championships haven't even started so I've mainly picked a squad for London based on the players' fitness and not present form," confirmed Egervari.
Along with Gera, Sunderland's Marton Fulop, Akos Buzsaky of QPR and Ipswich striker Tamas Priskin all play their football in England.
Hungary's 20-man squad:
Goalkeepers: Gabor Kiraly (1860 Munich), Marton Fulop (Sunderland)
Defenders: Zoltan Szelesi (Olympiakos Volosz), Krisztian Vermes (Ujpest FC), Zoltan Liptak (Videoton FC), Roland Juhasz (Anderlecht), Adam Komlosi (Debreceni VSC), Vilmos Vanczak (FC Sion)
Midfielders: Krisztian Vadocz (Osasuna), Akos Elek (Videoton FC), Balazs Toth (Genk), Akos Buzsaky (QPR), Peter Czvitkovics (Debreceni), Balazs Dzsudzsak (PSV), Szabolcs Huszti (FC Zenit), Vladimir Koman (Sampdoria)
Strikers: Zoltan Gera (Fulham), Tamas Hajnal (Borussia Dortmund), Gergely Rudolf (Genoa CFC), Tamas Priskin (Ipswich Town).
