England vs Hungary
England are currently playing out their final World Cup qualifier of the October international break.
The Three Lions would begin the break with a resounding win over Andorra last week, a result which saw them maintain their four-point lead atop of Group I.
Hungary, who England are currently facing at Wembley, were expected to prove a much tougher test than Andorra.
As a result, it was not surprising to see Gareth Southgate field a much strong starting eleven on Tuesday evening.
The Three Lions had arguably their strongest possible XI in from the off, barring the injured Harry Maguire who was replaced by Tyrone Mings.
Southgate, after his superb showing vs Andorra, would also choose to keep Phil Foden in the side, partnering him alongside Mason Mount as one of England’s two no.8s.
Almost ready to go ⌛️

Hungary fans cause trouble in away end
At the time of writing, the score remains at 0-0 with England on top.
It is not events on the pitch, however, which have taken center stage so far on Tuesday evening.
The main talking point has instead been the Hungary fans in attendance at Wembley.
Hungary have already recently had to play behind closed doors after their fans racially abused England players.
And on Tuesday, the away contingent at Wembley would begin fighting with police minutes into the game:
I’m at England v Hungary as a fan, and sad to report there are widespread fights between the Hungary fans and security/police in the away end. Police seemed to be heavily outnumbered and have just retreated. pic.twitter.com/b68LPsK6nZ
