England vs Hungary (October 12) match preview and stats

England is currently top of the group I table as they got an impressive 5-0 victory over Andorra in their last qualifier game. Gareth Southgate rested a lot of his players as he used another team in their win against Andorra. Ben Chilwell scored his first England goal in the 17th minute as he smashed the ball into the back of the net.

Bukayo Saka scored the second goal of the night with a perfectly timed run as he took a touch and fired it past the goalkeeper. Tammy Abraham finished Sancho’s delicious cross as the Three Lions led 3-0. James Ward-Prowse missed the penalty kick but was their rebound as he slotted it into the bottom corner. Jack Grealish also scored his first England goal as he danced through Andorra’s defence before finding the bottom left corner to make it 5-0.
