Defeat for England in front of its own audience, Hungary actually leads in the “Group of Death” | UEFA Nations League 2022/2023

With only 1 goal and 2 points from their first 3 matches in this Nations League, national coach Gareth Southgate already got a bit warm under his feet. That will not have improved after this disastrous show against Hungary.

A failed header from John Stones was the opening chord to a painful evening for the English in Wolverhampton. Roland Sallai took advantage and would do so a second time in a crazy final phase. This time Kalvin Phillips didn’t go unpunished.

Zsolt Nagy and Daniel Gazdag then sprinkled some extra salt in the English wound. Stones turned the dagger in even harder by taking a 2nd yellow card.

To loud booing, the English players dropped off after the final whistle: the heaviest home defeat for them since 1928. Hungary is surprisingly in the lead after 4 matches, ahead of major powers, Germany, Italy and England.
