Who will win England vs Hungary?

England manager Gareth Southgate pulled a surprise in last weekend's match against Andorra, resting skipper Harry Kane in favour of Tammy Abraham who has been in sparkling form at Roma under Kane's old Tottenham boss José Mourinho.

Manchester City star Phil Foden put in a wonderful shift against Andorra and was comfortably the man of the match. Foden was more than ably assisted by his Manchester United counterpart Jadon Sancho, who made light work of Andorra's defence.

Southgate has his Three Lions team purring right now. England has scored 14 goals and conceded just 1 since its loss on penalties to Italy in the Euro final in July. Hungary meanwhile has just 1 win from its last 8 matches. We suspect that trend will continue.

England 3-0.
