Group A3 Live now
Matthew Howarth, match reporter: Fourth-placed England still harbour ambitions of topping Group A3, but to stand any chance of reversing their fortunes the Three Lions need to improve their record of only one goal – a Harry Kane penalty – in three matches. Hungary, meanwhile, travel to Molineux brimming with confidence after frustrating a strong Germany outfit in Budapest on Saturday. If the Magyars succeed in doing the double over Gareth Southgate’s team, they could end the night in first place themselves.
What the coaches say
Gareth Southgate, England manager: "We want to win the game but throughout this period I have different objectives I'm trying to achieve; we have players who are fresh and the squad is important. We have a different tactical challenge tomorrow and lots of teams are finding things difficult against Hungary: they're a good side. This group have been incredible, their mentality, their desire to play for England and work every day on the training pitch to get better we're very fortunate to have a group as dedicated as we have."
Marco Rossi, Hungary coach: "I don’t think there will be many changes to the England team. They were strong against us, but also against Germany and Italy. They might rotate a bit. We can’t rotate as much, as we don’t have the same strength in depth. Some of our players are young and need time. We want to give them time."
What happens after the UEFA Nations League group stage?
