Dominik Szoboszlai is back in action after missing Euro 2020 due to injury, although Adam Nagy is suspended, David Siger and Gergo Lovrencsics both injured, and Loic Nego ruled out due to Covid-19.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has withdrawn from the squad after suffering an injury in Everton’s win over Brighton, offering an opportunity for Patrick Bamford to make his international debut following a first call-up.
Hungary vs England preview
Despite the disappointing end result, Gareth Southgate will have been proud of his team’s performance in reaching their first major final since 1966 this summer.
That success was first of all built on a defence that did not let in a single goal until the semi-finals, conceding just twice in seven games all tournament.
In fact, they have now kept 17 clean sheets in their last 23 fixtures, letting in just seven goals in total across that period.
This does not bode well for the Magyars, whose own rather defensive approach has seen them hit the net just once in their three previous matches on home turf.
Hungary vs England tips & predictions
All in all, odds of 21/20 (2.05) are surely not to be missed on England winning to nil for their seventh game in 10 when they take on a blunt Hungary outfit.
