Having come within a penalty shootout of winning their first tournament since lifting the World Cup in 1966, it's back to business for Southgate's men tonight in what could prove a tricky tie.

Tonight's match is likely to be the toughest Group I fixture for Southgate's men, with Hungary having impressed during Euro 2020, despite failing to make it out of the tournament's ‘Group of Death’.

Marco Rossi's side currently sit two points behind Group I table toppers England, and will be determined to pull off a shock in front of what looks set to be an intimidating capacity crowd.

With Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin having pulled out of the England camp earlier this week through injury, Leeds striker looks likely to make his first appearance for his country tonight, while Jadon Sancho faces a late fitness test for the away side.
