Hungary Vs England Prediction, Odds And Team News

The England squad will reunite for the first time since their Euro 2020 final defeat when they take a trip to Budapest to play Hungary on Thursday evening.

Gareth Southgate's young Three Lions head into this match hungry for all three points as they look to qualify for next year's World Cup in Qatar, but they face a stern side in Marco Rossi's Hungary.

Hungary were surprisingly tough to beat during the summer's European Championships, despite being drawn in the 'Group of Death' with Portugal, France and Germany.

Prediction: 0-2 (9/2) | Half-Time/Full-Time: England/England (11/10)

England have an exceptional record against Hungary and have won six of the last seven encounters between the two nations.

Interestingly, the Three Lions have led at half-time in three of their last five matches and, as a result of that, we’re backing Southgate’s men to lead from the first to last whistle in this one.

To Score a Header: Harry Maguire (11/1)

Considering the emphasis that Southgate has put on corners, Harry Maguire has moulded into a serious aerial threat for England.

The Manchester United captain scored in the quarter-final against Ukraine, and also had a headed shot on target in the matches against Denmark and Germany.

Anytime Goalscorer: Raheem Sterling (13/8)

During England's European Championship run to the final, Raheem Sterling was flawless in each and every game, causing mayhem for defenders of the opposition.

During the tournament, Sterling scored three times and we're backing him to score again on Thursday night as England look to put to bed a Hungary side that conceded six in three games this summer.

Hungary team news

RB Leipzig star midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai was forced to miss the European Championships due to injury, but will slot back into the side to take suspended Adam Nagy’s place.

Elsewhere, the hosts have been dealt a big blow with defensive stalwarts Loic Nego and Gergo Lovrencsics out with coronavirus, so Wolverhampton Wanderer’s new boy Bendeguz Bolla could earn a start.

England team news

Newly-called up Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford will seek to take advantage of the absences of Danny Ings, Marcus Rashford, Ollie Watkins and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Meanwhile, Southgate will be presented with another right-back dilemma, but is likely to stick with Kyle Walker, while Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish are expected to complete the attacking line-up.
