CALLUM STYLES spent last summer with his buddies cheering for England at the Euros.
And tonight the midfielder, who supports Manchester United, will face the Three Lions – and hope he takes on Harry Maguire.
Bury-born Styles, 22, switched allegiances after discovering he had a Hungarian grandmother.
The Barnsley star, who made his debut for the Magyars in March’s 1-0 friendly win over Northern Ireland, explained: “I’m still as English as any of the other guys we face.
“I remember watching the EURO final in Manchester in a pub last year and no one was more disappointed than me when we lost to Italy.
“Back then I didn’t know anything about my Hungarian roots – today I think I could have qualified for Poland.
“But Hungary came up to me and the head coach Marco Rossi was brilliant, as were my international teammates.
“Make no mistake, I’m still English and I’m still an England fan.
“But for this game and the return on June 14, I will do everything for the Magyars.
“I’m a lifelong United fan so I hope Harry will be on the pitch.

“It will still be a surreal experience to face England. There was a time when I thought maybe it would happen to me with England, but I got an alternative and I love it.”
Styles hopes his new international status will lead to the Prem.
After snubbing Nottingham Forest and Blackburn in January, he has been told by Barnsley he is free to seek a move, with the Hungarian having already made contact with Ferencvaros.
Styles added, “I’ve spoken to the CEO and he accepts that it’s time for a new challenge.
“I’m lucky because not only do we have England twice this month, we also have Italy and Germany.
“Playing for England never happened for me but now I’m a national team player and fingers crossed the next three games could take me to a Premier League club.”
