Expert prediction

Andy Clark, match reporter: Hungary against England remains a romantic international fixture in these parts, even if the last 15 encounters have been largely one-way traffic. Gareth Southgate's side – 22 matches unbeaten barring shoot-outs and having won 4-0 here last September – are firm favourites. That result, though, was an anomaly for Hungary under Marco Rossi, with whom they have risen from League C to League A and come within six minutes of qualifying from a UEFA EURO 2020 group containing Portugal, France, and Germany. It could be a fascinating match.

What the coaches say

Southgate looking to take next step with England

Marco Rossi, Hungary coach: "You can say that we got the strongest team from each pot. The European champions, the European silver medallists and Germany. It is a terribly difficult group in which we are again the weakest, as has happened to us many times recently. We didn't give up then either, and we'll do the same now."

Gareth Southgate, England manager: "Always with England, you need to play well and to win and we've always had a desire to try and develop players and give them an opportunity. We're only six matches away from a World Cup and we also want to be successful in the Nations League. We've found it a really good competition to play in, with a high level of games, and we've learned a lot from it but there's also a chance to see some players we want to see more of."

What happens after the UEFA Nations League group stage?

The four group winners in League A will advance to the knockout finals with, in principle, one appointed as hosts. The semi-finals will be played on 14 and 15 June 2023 with the final and third-place play-off to follow on 18 June.

The teams finishing fourth in the groups in Leagues A will be relegated to League B for the 2024/25 edition.
