Share Post

England are staring relegation from the top tier of the Nations League in the face after a 4-0 thrashing by Hungary yesterday inflicted the Three Lions’ heaviest home defeat since 1928.

Hungary secured their first win over England for 60 years in Budapest 10 days ago and followed that up with their first win on English soil since a famous 6-3 win at Wembley in 1953.

A double from Roland Sallai and late goals from Adam Nagy and Daniel Gazdag kept Hungary on course to reach the Nations League finals next year.

Marco Rossi’s men are not headed to the World Cup in Qatar, but lead Germany by a point, with European champions Italy two points behind the group leaders with two games to go.

England is three points adrift at the bottom of the table and will need a comeback in September against Italy and at home against Germany to avoid relegation.
