Team News

Hungary has no injury worries as starman Dominik Szoboszlai is now returning for the country after missing out on Euro 2020 last year.

Adam Szalai hopes to become one of Hungary’s top ten performers by starting in Budapest.

Fikayo Tomori is expected to start one of the English Nations League games after being called up to the squad.

So far, the AC Milan star has only played friendlies, which means he’s still qualified for Canada and Nigeria until he plays in an official game.

However, he will not start in Hungary as he is injured along with Mark Guehi.

Phil Foden is also out after catching Covid.

Jordan Henderson, Eric Dier, Tyrone Mings and Emile Smith Rowe were dropped from the roster.

Trent Alexander Arnold’s fitness will be assessed after struggling in the Champions League final.

  • Tough challenge in Budapest for Southgate

    It’s never easy to win away in football, no matter the level.

    The Puskas Arena can be an intimidating atmosphere when the fans are behind their team.

    England were expecting a Covid-style empty stadium for tonight’s game but are having to grapple with what some say will be around 35,000 fans.

  • Records are there to be broken

    England’s captain spoke about the pressure to break the England goalscoring record:

    It seems a long time since I made my debut now, back then it was all about playing for England, that was one of the best feelings, is still one of the best feelings when I put that shirt on. It’s great to be almost 50, of course I’m still a couple of goals behind Wazza, but the most important thing is to go out and play for my team and I’ll try and do that.

    Harry KaneEnglish captain

  • I’m coming for Roo

    England captain Harry Kane has scored 49 goals for his country.

    He is keen to break Wayne Rooney’s record ahead of this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.

    Rooney has scored 53 goals for his country and the busy Nations League schedule will give Kane six games to reach that goal.

  • Loopholes moves the world

    With children and legal guardians able to attend tonight’s game as per UEFA’s decision, the Puskas Arena can expect over 30,000 fans for the game.

    It will be a very different proposition than the game England expected.

    Southgate needs to ensure his players stay focused on the task at hand.

  • Welcome to Hungary vs England

    England travel to Budapest for the opening game of the Nations League, where they face familiar opponents. These two sides have met in World Cup qualifiers for the past 12 months.

    The Three Lions took four points from those two encounters, although Hungary managed a respectable 1-1 draw at Wembley and England easily won 4-0 in Budapest.

    The game was marred by reports of racism towards England’s players, initially leading to the game being set to be played behind closed doors, although it is now reported that around 30,000 fans will be in attendance.

    Phil Foden will miss games with Hungary and Germany after testing positive for Covid-19. The Man City midfielder has been sent home but boss Southgate says he should be available to get the games against Italy and Hungary at Molineux.

    Defenders Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi are injured and will be out, while Raheem Sterling has missed some training sessions but should be fit.

    England’s only real injury concern was the withdrawal of Arsenal centre-back Ben White, who is struggling with a muscle injury.

    James Justin continues his positive comeback after a lengthy injury layoff and hopes for his first cap in England. Hungary vs England LIVE: stream, TV channels, team news for TODAY UEFA Nations League clash
