England remain top of Group I, and in pole-position to qualify automatically for Qatar 2022.

Gareth Southgate’s men come into this month’s internationals in good form and high spirits off the back of an impressive Euro 2020 campaign that saw them pipped at the post by Italy.

Despite only having two games this international break, England have a chance to book a place in the World Cup if everything goes well.

The Three Lions came into this international break four-points clear of the rest of Group I, firmly in control of their World Cup qualifying group.

Following on from their thumping victory over minnows Andorra, England will be prepared for a tough game against a good Hungarian team.

The last time these two countries met, England ran out 4-0 winners and the players were subjected to sickening racist abuse from Hungarian fans.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the game.

Team news

Southgate is expected to field a strong starting XI, but is without a number of players.

Harry Maguire was left out of the squad because of injury, as was Liverpool ’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Jude Bellingham and Mason Greenwood have become regular starters for their respective clubs but because of their heavy match load, Southgate opted not to call up the two youngsters.

Aaron Ramsdale has impressed since joining Arsenal and the young keeper has forced his way into the Gunners’ starting XI.

Southgate admitted that his transfer helped his England chances, saying: “Aaron was with us all summer so we had an opportunity to work with him and understand his strengths.

“The move to a club with high expectation and style of play of building from the back is an important factor for us. He has adapted well to that move.”

Roma’s Tammy Abraham and AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori have both impressed in Serie A and the long-time friends have both earned their call-ups in Southgate’s 24-man squad.

Speaking about Tomori, Southgate said: “He’s playing at a club where there’s an expectation to win every week, so he’s performing under pressure.

“I like Fikayo in terms of his aggressiveness as a defender. Because he’s got speed he’s confident enough to defend on the front foot and his use of the ball is improving all the time.”

Southgate also has had to do without Reece James and one of his favourites in Kalvin Phillips after both were ruled out with injuries.

James’ teammate Ben Chillwell was called up to replace him, and Southampton ’s James Ward-Prowse has stepped up too.

Jadon Sancho and Ollie Watkins are in the squad and Manchester City youngster Phil Foden has returned from injury after a brilliant performance in his side’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
