Watch Hungary vs England Live Match and Goal Highlights
Welcome to another world cup qualifier fixture between Hungary and three lions of England.
England in Budapest, and yes, one match in particular always springs to mind. At the old Nepstadion in May 1954, Ferenc Puskas, Sandor Kocsis, Nandor Hidegkuti and the rest of Hungary’s famous golden generation ran rings around Walter Winterbottom’s hapless rabble.
They won their last World Cup qualifier in Budapest, 3-1 in 1981, two-goal Trevor Brooking the hero. They also won their last Euro qualifier here, 3-0 in 1983, Glenn Hoddle among the scorers. And there were 7-0 and 8-2 victories in 1908 and 1909, George Hilsdon of Chelsea and Tottenham’s Vivian Woodward taking turns to help themselves to four-goal hauls.
Given the joy London-based players have experienced in the Hungarian capital, Harry Kane can be forgiven for vigorously licking his lips in rabid anticipation.
