England vs Hungary: Kick off time, how to watch the game, ticket details, latest odds
Gareth Southgate’s return to Wembley in the World Cup qualifying stages. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the England game against Hungary.
The Three Lions are back at Wembley this week as they look to confirm qualification for the 2022 World Cup on home soil.
It was a positive return to action for the European Championship finalists in September, as they defeated opponents Hungary and Andorra 4-0 before picking up a point from a difficult away tie in Poland.
While the draw in Warsaw was there first dropped points during the qualifying stages, their qualification double header – which starts away to Andorra on Saturday night – will offer them the opportunity to make amends and book their spot in Qatar 2022.
However, Hungary, who had an impressive Euro 2020 campaign, despite facing the might of Portugal, France and Germany in the ground stages, will be looking to avenge their 4-0 drubbing in Budapest last month.
It’s only the second game the Three Lions have played at Wembley since their heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat to Italy in the same tournament.
And its been a while since the visitors have tasted victory against Gareth Southgate’s side, with the Hungarians having not tasted victory on English soil since 1953.
