England XI vs Hungary: Predicted line-ups, confirmed squad news and latest injuries for today’s Nations League game

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 today’s game at Molineux but speaking on Monday manager Southgate said he was not sure the Manchester City man would be ready to play.

“We really need to talk to our guys about physical performance 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.”

Gallagher, meanwhile, is the only outfield player to have been available for all three matches so far during this international break without playing a single minute.

“He will have a chance,” Southgate added. “The reason [he hasn’t played] it’s just the teams that we’ve chosen, the formations that we’ve chosen, haven’t necessarily adapted so far.

“Also, you have to earn your caps in England. Although we try to see things, everyone has to be patient, we think it’s really important to have a team that has a great collective mentality.

“It’s going to be huge as we move towards the World Cup.

“When we go to the World Cup, we’re not just handing out minutes to people, so there’s always that balance between learning about people, seeing how they are when they’re not in the team and this group are great at it, they support each other, they create an environment where the team comes first and that gives you a high chance of success.

Predicted England XI: Pickford; James, Gehi, Stones, Trippier; Phillips, Bellingham, Gallagher; Saka, Kane, Bowen.
