Winless England will hope revenge comes swiftly as they prepare to face Hungary for the second time in just ten days on Tuesday night - the final match of a four-game Nations League window.

The Three Lions got their campaign off to the worst possible start with a shock 1-0 defeat to the Hungarians in Budapest on 4 June, and they remain rooted to the bottom of Group A3 following subsequent draws with Germany and Italy.

Gareth Southgate's men have underwhelmed and are yet to score a goal from open play in the competition, which is a cause for concern for the England manager.

England team news

Having missed all three of England's Nations League matches thus far, Phil Foden is back in training following a bout of Covid-19. However, Southgate has said he remains a doubt.

Leicester City full-back James Justin is pushing to make his home international debut having recovered from a calf injury picked up on his full debut - against Hungary in Budapest.

Kalvin Phillips was fit enough to play 25 minutes against Italy having sustained a dead leg in the draw with Germany.

Mason Mount has featured prominently in each all three of England's matches so far, so it is feasible that he will be rested here.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has already left the squad to begin his summer holidays.


Hungary team news

Hungary boss Marco Rossi will be forced into a change of goalkeeper after number one Peter Gulacsi picked up a one-match yellow card ban last time out against Germany. Denes Dibusz is likely to deputise.

Meanwhile, Union Berlin midfielder Andras Schafer is returning from his own ban.

As usual, Hungary's main threats are Dominik Szoboszlai, Roland Sallai and Adam Szalai, although any number of them could be rested following a busy international window.


England vs Hungary score prediction

Hungary have already proven themselves to be stubborn opponents in the Nations League, taking four points in games against England and Germany and losing narrowly to European champions Italy.

If you had asked anyone for their prediction before this international break, a comfortable home victory would have been the answer. However, Southgate's side do not look like they have enough in the tank to necessarily get the job done; they've looked tired, they've struggled to create chances and look goal-shy.

Another frustrating night for the Three Lions may well be on the cards.

Score prediction: England 1-1 Hungary
