England are now almost there is terms of rubber-stamping their ticket to World Cup 2022.

On Saturday night, the Three Lions easily beat Andorra 5-0 at Estadi Nacional.

Ben Chilwell opened the scoring before Bukayo Saka doubled the visitor’s lead just before half time.

After the interval, Tammy Abraham, James Ward-Prowse and Jack Grealish all also added their names to the scoresheet to complete the rout.

This means Gareth Southgate’s side have won six of their seven qualifiers thus far.

Their only slip-up was a 1-1 draw with Poland at Stadion Narodowy last month, in which the hosts equalised in stoppage time.

Six days earlier though, England had hammered Hungary 4-0 at Puskás Aréna with all the goals in the second half.

Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Declan Rice all scoring in spite of a torrent of racist abuse and plastic cups coming their way.

So, the European Championship runners-up are currently four points clear of Albania at the top of Group I with Poland a point further back.

Thus, despite the fact they cannot mathematically qualify after matchday eight, it appears to be a case of when and not if.

England are unbeaten in their last 14 meetings with Hungary, winning 12 of them.

Their last defeat in this fixture came in Rancagua (Chile) when Hungary won 2-1 at the 1962 World Cup.

However, the most famous meeting took place even further back, in 1953 in fact.

Back then, a Hungarian team featuring Ferenc Puskás and other unknown stars of the future won 6-3 at Wembley, a game labeled match of the century.

A repeat scoreline 68 years on seems unlikely.

Will Hungary stun Wembley?

As for modern-day Hungary, their World Cup 2022 hopes have taken a serious beating in the last four matches.

At this summer’s European Championships, Marco Rossi’s side showed their quality.

They nearly held Portugal to a draw, eventually losing 3-0, before taking a point off both France and then Germany.

That’s the second consecutive Euros they’ve qualified for but were now hoping 2022 would represent their first World Cup appearance since Mexico ’86.

However, last month, not only did they get batted by England, they suffered an even more damaging defeat in Elbasan, losing 1-0 to Albania.

In that one, the hosts scored with just three minutes to play.

Then, at the weekend, lightning struck twice with Albania beating them 1-0 again, this time in Budapest and this time scoring ten minutes from the end.

All of this means Hungary only have ten points so are four behind Poland and five adrift of Albania.

Depending on the result in Tirana, where those two meet, Hungary’s hopes of a play-off place could be over after this fixture.

Will Nemzeti Tizenegy reignite their dwindling World Cup dreams with a victory at Wembley?

Gareth Southgate picked many of his fringe players in Andorra la Vella but his regulars will all return here.

This includes in goal where Jordan Pickford will surely be back in at Sam Johnstone’s expense.

At the back,  Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James are both injured but Kyle Walker would probably get the nod at right-back anyway.

In the middle, it’ll be interesting to see who Southgate goes for with Harry Magure also absent.

John Stones, who played an hour at the weekend, could keep his place but, after impressing at A.C. Milan, Fikayo Tomori could be alongside.

Ben Chilwell is likely to keep his place on the left as Luke Shaw is a doubt.

In midfield, Kalvin Phillips is injured and Jude Bellingham has been left in Germany to rest.

So, Jordan Henderson could get a rare start these days alongside Declan Rice.

Further forward, after a man of the match performance against Andorra, Phil Foden may well get the nod in the number ten role.

His Manchester City teammates Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling are likely to keep their places on the flanks.

This would means Mason Mount, only just back after injury, Jadon Sancho, Bukayo Saka and Jesse Lingard are all left in reserve.

In attack, Harry Kane will lead the line.

He’s currently on 41 England goals, three behind the late great Jimmy Greaves who’s fourth on the list, and 12 adrift of Wayne Rooney’s record.

Kane will come in for Tammy Abraham who’s now scored five times for club and country this term.

Will England blow Hungary away at Wembley?

As for Hungary, it’s win or bust for them which isn’t ideal as England haven’t lost any of their last 31 home qualifiers, dating back to 2007.

Two of their key performers are goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi and centre-back Willi Orbán, both of RB Leipzig.

The latter will be the middle man of their back three with Endre Botka of Ferencváros and Fenerbahçe’s Attila Szalai either side.

Attila Fiola, who scored against France at the Euros, is injured so Ádám Nagy will fill-in at left-wing-back.

Dominik Szoboszlai, who missed the European Championships due to injury, is undoubtedly their talisman.

In November of last year, his stunning solo goal in the 94th minute saw Hungary beat Iceland in the Euro 2020 play-off final.

England did extremely well to keep him quiet in Budapest, this will be hoping for more of the same in that regard.

Szoboszlai will be hoping to supply their front two of Roland Sallai and Dániel Sallói.

The latter, of Sporting Kansas City, is deputising for their best centre-forward, Ádám Szalai, who’s injured.

After holding France and Germany in the summer, can Hungary go one better at Wembley?
