With just three games left to go in World Cup qualifying, England are in firm control of Group I and only a tremendous slip up would see them miss out on automatic qualification. The Three Lions currently sit four points clear of second-placed Albania having won six and drawn one of their seven games so far. England entered this international break off the back of a 1-1 draw with Poland in which Damian Szymanski scored an injury-time equaliser to cancel out Harry Kane’s strike, but they rebounded in perfect fashion on Saturday. A trip to Andorra saw England run out 5-0 winners despite playing what could be described as a heavily-rotated XI. Victory over Hungary would not be enough to send England through, even if Albania and Poland draw, but it would put them on the brink.

For Hungary, automatic qualification is still mathematically possible but the odds are massively against them. While England were beating Andorra, Hungary lost 1-0 to Albania and now sit nine points behind their opponents on Tuesday with three games left to play. Even a play-off spot will be a tall order for the visitors as the defeat to Albania left them five points behind the Eagles. It was Hungary’s third defeat of World Cup qualifying and continued their poor run which now stands and one victory in their past seven matches.

England vs Hungary: Match Stats

Although Hungary haven’t exactly been goal shy in World Cup qualifying, they face an England team that have been almost unbeatable in defence. In their seven games so far, England have conceded just two goals – both scored by Poland in a 2-1 win for the Three Lions and the aforementioned 1-1 draw. England also shut Hungary out last month in a 4-0 win, silencing the attack along with the home crowd.

Raheem Sterling was one of the goalscorers in Hungary last month, continuing his decent record for England this year. The Manchester City forward has scored five goals in 12 games since the turn of the year, including two in World Cup qualifying and three at Euro 2020 as England reached the final. He was rested Andorra too, so will be fresh for the visit of Hungary.

England were haunted by the great Hungary team, including defeat at the 1962 World Cup, but since then the Three Lions have gone unbeaten in 14 games against their next opponents. Only five of those games have been in competitive football, though that does include England’s 4-0 win in Hungary last month.
