Ungary travels to Molineux for the final Nations League clash of the summer for England, who will have to end the month without a win.
Beaten in Budapest early in the break, Gareth Southgate’s side’s performance that day seemingly set the tone for a few disappointing games.
Still, three points against a team that also held Germany level could help end the season on a relatively high level.
Whether or not the Nations League displays have a material effect on what happens at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is up for debate, although few would doubt that the mood around the team of England has cooled down a bit lately.
There is also the very real prospect of relegation from Nations League Group A3 to consider.
After Tuesday’s match at Molineux, England will travel to Italy before taking on Germany at Wembley in September, making a home game against Hungary a must-win affair.

England vs Hungary Team News
Southgate have spoken of the over-reliance on Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling, although it’s hard to see other players getting another chance to lift that, such is the importance of the game.
Jordan Pickford, Kyle Walker and John Stones are all pushing to return alongside Kane and Sterling.
Conor Gallagher should have a chance to impress but Phil Foden remains a doubt.
Foden missed the reverse fixture, a 1-0 defeat at Budapest earlier this month, and last week’s draws with Italy and Germany after testing positive for Covid.
He is back in training ahead of Tuesday’s match at Molineux, but speaking on Monday, Gareth Southgate said he was not sure the Manchester City man would be ready to play.
“We really need to talk to our physical performance guys and our medical team because he’s back in training, but there’s a reality about the conditioning he’s had over the last three weeks and what what we expect of him,” Southgate said. . “We will do that as the day progresses.”
Reece James and Mason Mount were perhaps the only players to plead for another start in Saturday’s draw against Italy.
For Hungary, Peter Gulasci is suspended, with Denes Dibusz likely to replace him in goal.
England vs Hungary prediction
The Hungarians have proven difficult to break in this Nations League run so far, while England struggle for goals.
With that in mind, a draw seems reasonable.
A 1-1 draw.
