England begin their Uefa Nations League campaign on Saturday, as they take on Hungary in Group A3.


England continue to ramp up their preparations for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with their first UEFA Nations League clash of this cycle against Hungary at the Puskas Arena on Saturday evening.


In contrast, the hosts will not be present on the big stage, and off-field controversy continues to bedevil the players ahead of this League A Group 3 fixture.


With Germany and Italy the other nations in the quartet, this would be nominally seen as the easiest encounter on offer, but where it was supposed to be behind closed doors, the Hungarian FA have opted to allow 30,000 schoolchildren in to witness the clash.


England are out to kickstart their Nations League campaign with a win away to Hungary later today.


Budapest’s Puskas Arena will be almost half-full with 30,000 youngsters despite the hosts being slapped with a stadium ban for racist chanting on the Three Lions’ last visit to the venue.


A successful evening for England on the pitch in Hungary was dampened by a torrent of racist abuse hurled down from the stands back in September's World Cup qualifier, and the expectation was that Saturday's encounter would take place behind closed doors.


However, with children and guardians permitted to attend in line with UEFA's ruling, the Puskas Arena can reportedly expect to welcome as many as 30,000 spectators for the weekend's Nations League opener, where Marco Rossi's players will hope to inspire the next generation.


Hungary held their own in the Euro 2020 Group of Death without making it count for much as they bowed out in the group stage, and it will likely be a similar story in the Nations League, with Italy and Germany lying in wait either side of their England double-header.


A first appearance in the World Cup finals since 1986 still eludes the world's 40th-ranked nation, whose most recent fixture saw Roland Sallai net the only goal in a 1-0 friendly success over Northern Ireland - a third win from five in all competitions for the Magyars.


On a more negative note, Hungary welcome England to Budapest having won just two of their last six home matches in all competitions, and even then those successes were against European minnows in San Marino and Andorra, so their upcoming Nations League campaign may not be a memorable one following their two successive promotions from the doldrums of League C.


There may be mixed feelings for England gunning for Nations League glory before they have added another Euros or World Cup trophy to the cabinet, but the Three Lions should not turn their noses up to a piece of silverware 12 months on from their Euros heartbreak.


Gareth Southgate will be sticking around until at least 2024 following the signing of his new contract back in November, which came as England eased into the 2022 World Cup unbeaten in 10 Qualifying matches - topping Group I in the process.


Five goals were scored and only one was conceded as England claimed a pair of friendly victories over Switzerland and Ivory Coast back in March, with Southgate taking the opportunity to experiment with his XI during those periods, and the Nations League provides the last-chance saloon for those seeking to become an integral part of the boss's Qatar plans.


The less said about England's 2020-21 bid for Nations League glory the better, as the Three Lions could only muster a third-placed finish in League A Group 2, and they will renew hostilities with Germany three days after their gruelling journey to Budapest.


Nevertheless, a 10th unbeaten game in a row beckons for England this weekend, while they have also won each of their last four in all tournaments, and their somewhat forgettable trip to the Puskas Arena back in September ended in a straightforward 4-0 success before they were held to a 1-1 draw at Wembley one month later.


With Italy and Germany for company in Group 3, England will need to pick up all three points to put forward their case for reaching the Nations League finals next year.


Gareth Southgate will be without Phil Foden for the trip after the Manchester City man tested positive for Covid, with Raheem Sterling a doubt.


As four games will be played in quick succession, changes to line-ups and personnel are expected to be commonplace, meaning everyone in the squad should have at least the chance of involvement over the next two weeks.


England and Hungary were in the same World Cup qualifying group too, but while the Three Lions cruised to the finals, Hungary finished only fourth behind Poland and Albania.


Gareth Southgate will be without two of England’s most influential players in Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling on Saturday when the Three Lions kick off their 2022-23 Uefa Nations League campaign in Hungary.


England are seeking to improve on the previous tournament’s third-place finish in group A2 and advance to the Nations League finals next summer.


With Italy and Germany also in their group, victory over relative minnows Hungary is a must if the team is to challenge for top spot.


Missing the trip to Budapest is Foden, who grabbed four assists during the recent World Cup qualifying campaign and who also won’t be available for next week’s clash with Germany after testing positive for Covid-19, while Sterling – one of England’s best players at the European Championship last summer – is out with an illness.


Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.


When is Hungary vs England?


The Nations League clash kicks off at 5pm BST on Saturday 4 June.


Where can I watch it?


England’s Nations League matches will be broadcast live on Channel 4 and streamed on the All 4 platform.


What is the England team news?


Phil Foden is out with Covid but otherwise Gareth Southgate should have a full squad to choose from. Fikayo Tomori is hoping to shine after being recalled, while Jarrod Bowen and James Justin could be in line for debuts after their first call-ups. Ben


There are no real surprises in the Hungary setup for June's fixtures, with 80-cap skipper Adam Szalai aiming to break into the top 10 of Hungary's all-time appearance list with a start on Saturday evening.


Winger Kevin Varga is the only player from March's squad to drop out for the Nations League, but there are a quartet of uncapped names hoping to make an impression, including 17-year-old striker Zalan Vancsa.


Rossi's customary 3-4-2-1 formation should see Szalai supported by Sallai and Dominik Szoboszlai as ever, while Peter Gulacsi will expect to demote Denes Dibusz down to the bench.


Meanwhile, England have already been dealt one injury blow following the withdrawal of Arsenal centre-back Ben White, who is yet to completely shake off the muscular problem that plagued him during the final few weeks of the Premier League season.


Southgate must also check on the fitness of Trent Alexander-Arnold following his unsuccessful Champions League exploits, but Jordan Henderson has been left out of the squad alongside Eric Dier, Tyrone Mings and Emile Smith Rowe, who is with the Under-21s.


Jarrod Bowen and James Justin will both push for their first caps this month, and calls for Fikayo Tomori to earn a start in defence will fall on deaf ears amid the AC Milan centre-back's fitness problems.


Marc Guehi will also miss out alongside the COVID-positive Phil Foden, while Raheem Sterling is also a doubt after illness disrupted his week of training.


Predicted line-ups


HUN: Gulacsi, Lang, Orban, Fiola, Nego, Schafer, Styles, Nagy, Sallai, Szoboszlai, Szalai


ENG: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Tomori, Trippier, Phillips, Ward-Prowse, Saka, Mount, Sterling, Kane


Prediction


England to beat a side they have already done so away from home in the recent past and start their Nations League campaign on a positive note, if not the most exciting encounter. Hungary 0-2 England.
