Gareth Southgate’s side need two wins from their three remaining qualifiers to reach Qatar 2022.
England thrashed Andorra 5-0 on Saturday to make it six wins from seven in qualifying and now take on Hungary, who gave Germany, France and Portugal plenty to think about at Euro 2020, but who were thumped 4-0 by the Three Lions on home soil last month.
That match was marred by yet more racist abuse directed at England players, for which the Hungarian FA have subsequently been fined and issued with a stadium ban.

England vs Hungary prediction
England defied a hostile atmosphere to comfortably beat Hungary in their own backyard last month and having rested most of their star names in Andorra, there’s little reason to think a similar outcome isn’t on the cards here.
England to win 4-0.
