Final Tournament


Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
England are next in World Cup qualifying action at home to Albania on November 12, while Hungary host San Marino on the same day.
England drop points for only the second time of their World Cup qualifying campaign as they are held to a 1-1 draw by Hungary at Wembley Stadium. The visitors took the lead from the penalty spot after Luke Shaw caught Loic Nego with a high foot, and Roland Sallai duly dispatched a strike from 12 yards. The Three Lions levelled through John Stones with a close-range effort from a Phil Foden free-kick. However, England were unable to unlock the Hungary defence again, allowing Marco Rossi's men to earn a share of the spoils.
90' + 5' Watkins throws himself at a cross from Walker, but he fouls Gulacsi in the process. Hungary can wind down the clock here.
90' + 3' CHANCE! Watkins latches on to a scuffed shot from Foden in the right-inside channel. However, the forward in turn fails to make a clean connection with his effort on the half-volley, allowing Gulacsi to make an easy save.
B. Bolla
L. Négo
90' + 3' Bolla is on for the visitors to replace Nego.
O. Watkins
T. Abraham
90' + 2' Abraham appears to have suffered a knock and is withdrawn for Watkins.
N. Nikolić
D. Szoboszlai
90' + 2' Nikolic enters the action for the closing stages of the contest.
90' There will be four minutes of added time.
D. Szoboszlai
Yellow Card
90' Szoboszlai goes into the book for timewasting.
89' Gulacsi puts his team in trouble with a poor punch clear from Foden's cross. Shaw meets it on the half-volley and Abraham tries to help it goalwards, but his effort travels wide of the right post. The forward may have been offside anyway.
86' Mount angles a dangerous cross in from the left flank that Gulacsi flaps at. However, the loose ball falls kindly for the visitors, and allows Szalai to clear the danger.
84' CHANCE! Saka loses out to Zsolt and Holender takes possession in the left-inside channel. He strikes a curling strike towards the top-right corner, but it sails just over the bar.
82' Stones receives treatment on the field and appears keen to remain on despite his ailment. 
81' Stones attacks a cross from Shaw from an England free-kick, but his headed effort is gathered by Gulacsi. However, he is adjudged to have fouled Kecskes in the build-up. Stones remains down on the field after the fact.
J. Hahn
R. Sallai
79' Hahn replaces Sallai for the closing stages of the contest.
B. Vécsei
A. Schäfer
79' Vecsei enters the action for Schafer in the middle of the park.
78' Hungary are grinding their way towards an impressive result here. After their defeat against Albania it would have been easy for them to down tools, but they've been committed across the pitch tonight.
T. Abraham
H. Kane
76' Kane has been withdrawn after a frustrating evening and is replaced by Abraham in the final third. Walker takes the armband.
J. Henderson
R. Sterling
76' Henderson replaces Sterling, which will see Mount will push forward in the final third.
74' WIDE! Kane latches on to a deflected offload from Saka and has space and time to pull the trigger. However, he slices his effort high and wide of the target. It sums up his start to the season, although it would not have counted anyway as he was offside.
72' Schafer probes down the right flank and he floats a cross into the box, forcing Mings to head away from Szoboszlai before Walker completes the clearance behind for a corner.
70' CHANCE! STERLING HAS TO SCORE! Kane releases the forward through on goal and he only has to beat the onrushing Gulacsi. However, he tries to poke his effort through the legs of the Hungary keeper, who makes a good block.
F. Holender
S. Schön
68' Holender replaces Schon for the visitors in the final third.
67' Hungary have once again been disciplined in their approach and have made life difficult for the hosts to break them down at the back.
65' Saka tries to burst past Szalai down the right flank as he cuts inside, but he goes down. The referee is not interested in his appeal for a free-kick.
B. Saka
J. Grealish
62' Saka enters the action to replace Grealish down the left flank.
62' WIDE! Stones puts his header just wide of the left post. Foden floats a dangerous cross into the box that the defender attacks. He glances a header towards goal, but it drifts wide of the target with Gulacsi beaten.
61' England build with pace down the right flank and Sterling collects in space, but Nagy comes across to divert his cross behind for a corner.
59' Foden angles a long ball over the top for Kane to chase, but the flag goes up for offside against the England captain. It's not going the way of the England captain for club or country at the moment.
58' SAVE! Kane turns in the final third and angle a strike at goal from 25 yards, but Gulacsi watches it all the way to make a comfortable stop.
56' Sterling turns away from Zsolt with ease and sends a pass inside to Kane, but he loses out to Lang in the box.
55' Sterling breaks down the right flank and into space, latching on to an offload from Walker. He tries to fire a low ball across the face of goal that Gulacsi punches away before Szalai completes the clearance.
52' WIDE! Schon breaks upfield and offloads towards Sallai. He lines up a strike from 25 yards, but it deflects off Mings and travels wide for a corner.
50' Hungary break on the counter and catch England short on numbers. Schon tries to pick out Szoboszlai with a deep cross, but Shaw is well placed to head clear of danger.
48' England win a corner down the right flank, but Gulacsi does well to come through a crowd to punch Foden's delivery away from danger.
46' We're back under way at Wembley.
England were lethargic in the early stages of the game, but starting to click into gear towards the end of the half. Southgate will be looking for more from Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, who have been too quiet thus far.
It's all square at the break between England and Hungary in their World Cup qualifying clash. The visitors took a surprise lead from the penalty spot after Luke Shaw caught Loic Nego with a high boot and Rolland Salai converted from 12 yards. The Three Lions equalised as John Stones found the net from close range from a Phil Foden free-kick. However, the home side will be far from satisfied with their display.
45' + 1' SAVE AND WIDE! Sterling should put England ahead. Shaw hangs a dangerous cross to the back post for Sterling to attack. He heads a powerful effort at goal that Gulacsi saves. The forward pounces on the rebound, but stabs his effort wide of the right post.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
44' Grealish drops his shoulder down the left flank and gets past Nego at first, but the defender recovers well to force the ball behind for a corner.
42' Foden wastes a promising position as floats the resulting free-kick into the hands of Gulacsi.
40' Sterling releases Grealish into the left-inside channel and takes a good first touch. However, he dwells on his strike and it allows Kecskes to stick out a boot to deny the midfielder. A great intervention from the Hungary defender.
J. Stones
37' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! STONES EQUALISES FROM CLOSE RANGE!!! 1-1!!!! England are level as Stones sticks out a boot to divert the ball past Gulacsi into the net. Foden angles a dangerous cross into the box from the right flank that Mings nods towards goal. It takes a deflection, but Stones reacts first with his left boot to convert. Relief for Southgate and the Three Lions.
37' Grealish makes a probing run down the right flank and draws a foul from Zsolt. Foden will take the set-piece.
36' Foden's corner troubles the Hungary defence as Nagy tries to head clear. Gulacsi takes action and punches, but he fails to make contact. The visitors manage to scramble it away before Kane can react.
35' Mount angles a dangerous cross to the back post for Kane to attack, but Nego is well placed to head behind for a corner.
34' Shaw sends Mount down the left flank with pace and the midfielder draws a foul from Nagy. England have another set-piece in a good position.
33' Foden takes the free-kick, but he fails to beat the first man with his delivery into the box. Further frustration for the hosts.
31' Zsolt goes in hard on Grealish down the right flank, and it hands England a free-kick in a useful position.
29' There is no cohesion in England's play at the moment. Kane, Sterling and Grealish are not combining in the final third. Hungary have put in an excellent performance thus far.
27' Kane goes down under pressure from Szalai in the left-inside channel, but the referee is not convinced in his appeal for a penalty.
26' England have been poor in the opening 26 minutes and have been duly punished by the visitors.
R. Sallai
Penalty Goal
24' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!! SALLAI HAMMERS HOME FROM 12 YARDS!!! 1-0 HUNGARY!!! Sallai holds his nerve from 12 yards as he beats Pickford. The forward goes for the bottom-left corner with his effort and sends Pickford the wrong way to put the visitors into a deserved lead.
23' PENALTY TO HUNGARY! The referee points to the spot as Shaw puts in a high boot for Nego. The defender attempts to clear with a bicycle kick, but catches the Hungary man on the head. The official does not hesitate with his decision.
L. Shaw
Yellow Card
22' Shaw goes into the book for a high boot on Nego that results in a Hungary penalty.
21' Rice sends Grealish down the left flank and the midfielder has options in the middle, but he can only curl a tame cross straight at Gulacsi.
19' Shaw clips a cross towards Mount in the box, who nods an offload back to Foden. However, the midfielder cannot connect on the slide amid pressure from Nagy.
17' Hungary have been given plenty of encouragement by the hosts. England are not quite firing in the early stages.
15' BLOCK! Mount gives the ball away and Szoboszlai breaks upfield. Zsolt takes over and goes for a strike from the left-inside channel, but his effort is blocked by Stones.
14' OVER! Szoboszlai whips a low cross into the box from the right flank that Sallai attacks on the half-volley, but he steers his effort over the bar.
12' England are trying to bring their front three into the game, but the Hungary defence are doing a solid job of quelling the threat in the early stages.
10' Lang and Kane tussle for the resulting corner. Kane wins the duel, but plants his header wide of the right post. However, the referee awards a free-kick to the visitors for a foul on the Hungary defender.
9' CLOSE! Grealish and Shaw combine down the left flank, which sees the latter deliver a dangerous low cross towards the back post. Kane tries to connect on the slide, but Lang is in the right place at the right time to steer it behind.
7' Mings releases Grealish down the left flank and he cuts the ball back to Kane. However, he takes a loose touch under pressure, which travels out for a goal-kick.
4' Kane turns in the final third and tries to release Grealish through the middle, but the City midfielder loses control and Hungary gain possession to clear their lines.
2' Szoboszlai has a surge down the left flank and tries to find a team-mate in the England box, but Stones blocks his cross out for a throw-in.
1' We're under way at Wembley Stadium.
There will be a minute of applause of kick-off in memory of Jimmy Greaves and Roger Hunt.
England are unbeaten in their last 14 matches against Hungary in all competitions (W12 D2) since losing 2-1 at the 1962 World Cup under Walter Winterbottom.
Hungary have made three changes to their side that was beaten by Albania at the weekend. Willi Orban misses out due to injury and is replaced by Kecskes in the backline, while Lang also comes into the side in place of Endre Botka. Schon gets the nod in the final third to replace Salloi, who drops to the bench.
England have made nine changes to their side from their team that beat Andorra last time out. Pickford returns in goal to replace Johnstone. Stones retains his place from the win, but is now joined by Mings, Walker and Shaw in the backline. Foden too holds down a role in the middle of the park as Rice and Mount slot in alongside the Manchester City man. Kane spearheads the attack in the final third with Grealish and Sterling in support.
HUNGARY SUBS: Botond Balogh, Daniel Salloi, Filip Holender, Bendeguz Bolla, Daniel Gazdag, Roland Varga, Balint Vecsei, Janos Csaba Hahn, Adam Bogdan, Nemanja Nikolic.
HUNGARY (3-4-3): Peter Gulacsi; Adam Lang, Akos Kecskes, Attila Szalai; Loic Nego, Adam Nagy, Andras Schafer, Zsolt Nagy; Roland Sallai, Szabolcs Schon, Dominik Szoboszlai.
ENGLAND SUBS: Kieran Trippier, Sam Johnstone, Jordan Henderson, Conor Coady, Fikayo Tomori, Ben Chilwell, Tammy Abraham, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho, James Ward-Prowse, Aaron Ramsdale, Ollie Watkins.
ENGLAND (4-3-3): Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Tyrone Mings, Luke Shaw; Phil Foden, Declan Rice, Mason Mount; Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Jack Grealish.
Hungary know that a defeat tonight would all but end their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup. They begin the evening five points adrift of second-place Albania after suffering a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Eagles last time out. Marco Rossi's men now need a surprise result to get their campaign back on track, although it will take a huge effort to beat the Three Lions at Wembley.
England can take a massive stride towards securing a place at the 2022 World Cup tonight by defeating Hungary. Gareth Southgate's men were in outstanding form last time out in front of goal, putting five past Andorra on the road. The Three Lions now return to home soil and will be eager to maintain their clinical edge against a team that they beat 4-0 last month. 
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the World Cup qualifying clash between England and Hungary at Wembley Stadium.
