    Change of focus much needed

    Hungary will be looking to perform well on the pitch today with a performance against this highly-rated England side.

    It would take focus from their recent off-field controversy.

    The home fans have a huge part to play in all aspects of the game at the Puskas Arena today.

    Rossi's side not firing on all cylinders

    Hungary have had real issues creating chances at home of late.

    They have failed to score in five of their last eight games.

    Their only wins in that time have come against Andorra and San Marino.

    Bulletproof England show the way

    England have won 15 of their last 20 international matches in 90 minutes across all competitions.

    13 of those games have seen England keep clean-sheets.

    Avoiding defeat today would see The Three Lions extend their unbeaten run to 10 games.

      All roads lead to Qatar

      On the pitch there isn't much of a contest between these two teams.

      England however will still be smarting from their third-placed finish in the Nations League last time out.

      The surge of games in the competition in the lead up to the World Cup will offer many players a chance to catch the manager's eye before that squad for the plane to Qatar is decided.

      Tough challenge in Budapest for Southgate

      It is never easy to win on the road in football at any level.

      The Puskas Arena can be an intimidating atmospherewhen the fans are getting behind their team.

      England were expecting a covid-style empty stadium for tonight's game but will have to deal with what some are saying will be around 35,000 fans.

      Records are made to be broken

      England's captain spoke about the pressure of breaking the England goalscoring record:

      It seems like a long time ago when I made my debut now, at the time it was just about playing for England, that was one of the best feelings, still is one of the best feelings every time I pull on that shirt. It's great to be close to 50, obviously I am still a few goals behind Wazza but the most important thing is to go out there and perform for my team and that is what I'll try and do.

      I’m coming for Roo

      England captain Harry Kane has scored 49 goals for his country.

      He is keen to break Wayne Rooney’s record before this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.

      Rooney scored 53 goals for his country and the Nations League hectic fixture schedule will give Kane six games to achieve that goal.

      Loopholes makes the world go around

      Due to children and guardians being able to attend today’s game in line with UEFA’s ruling, the Puskas Arena can expect to see in excess of 30,000 fans for the game.

      It will be a very different proposition from the ‘closed doors’ game England were expecting.

      Southgate will have to ensure his players stayed focussed on the task at hand.

      Welcome to Hungary vs England

      England travel to Budapest for their Nations League opening game against a familiar foe with these two sides having met in World Cup qualifying in the last 12 months.

      The Three Lions took four points from those two encounters, despite Hungary gaining a creditable 1-1 draw at Wembley, England winning comfortably 4-0 in Budapest.

      The game was marred by reports of racism towards England’s players which led initially to the game being planned to be played behind closed doors, although it is now reported that around 30,000 fans will be in attendance.

      Phil Foden will miss the games with Hungary and Germany after testing positive for Covid-19, the Man City midfielder has been sent home but boss Southgate says he should be available got the games against Italy and Hungary at Molineux.

      Defenders Fikayo Tomori and Marc Guehi are injured and will miss out, while Raheem Sterling has missed some training sessions but should be fit.

      England’s only real injury worry was the withdrawal of Arsenal centre-back Ben White as he struggles to shake off a muscular injury.

      James Justin continues his positive comeback from a long injury lay-off and is hoping to push for his first England cap.
