Why you should back England
Considering how well England has played throughout qualifying, there aren’t many areas to be critical of. Harry Kane has scored five goals in five appearances, and the Three Lions have only allowed two goals in their seven matches thus far. Plus, Hungary hasn’t beaten England since 1962, and they’ve played 11 times since then.
Against Andorra, England got goals from Ben Chilwell, Bukayo Saka, Tammy Abraham, James Ward-Prowse, and Jack Grealish. The first three in that group are all 24-years-old or younger, and England manager Gareth Southgate has a wonderful opportunity to continue getting his young stars more minutes. Hungary hasn’t been able to parlay strong showings in Euro 2020 into World Cup Qualifying success, and England should have all the confidence in this one after their last meeting.
Why you should back Hungary
The most optimistic perspective that can be taken when it comes to Hungary is that it will rise to the occasion in a must-win spot against a superior foe. Hungary has to treat this match as though its World Cup dreams will come to an end unless they find a way to take a result. Of course, that’s easier said than done, but if the Hungarians are to stand a chance, they will need Adam Szalai to find the back of the net. He is the team’s leader in scoring during World Cup Qualifying with three goals, and he’s scored twice in his last three appearances across all matches for his country.
Hungary has proven that it can play tough in big matches this year, and needs to remind itself about what it took to give those performances. In their two draws against Germany and France at Euro 2020, the Hungarians’ opponents thoroughly dominated possession, but Hungary took advantage of its limited opportunities.
