WOLVERHAMPTON: England’s nightmarish Nations League campaign grew even more depressing as they suffered their worst home defeat since 1928 by 4-0 at Wolverhampton against Hungary to leave them bottom of Group A3.

Gareth Southgate’s side have now gone four games without a victory for the first time since 2014 and have only two more Nations ties before flying to the World Cup finals in Qatar in November.

Roland Sallai put the visitors in front with a well-taken finish at the back post, then doubled Hungary’s lead with his second on the break 20 minutes from time.

There was more to come from a rampant Hungary, as Zsolt Nagy fired in from range and – after John Stones was sent off to compound a woeful evening for the hosts – Daniel Gazdag finished smartly to wrap up a second historic win over England in 10 days.

For England, Jarrod Bowen missed a chance from a Reece James cross and Harry Kane headed against the bar.

Hungary – who top a group that also includes Germany and Italy – were well organised and clinical to earn only their second win on English soil and first since the historic 6-3 success at Wembley in 1953.

Southgate must have wished the tie, like Saturday’s goalless clash with Italy, had been played behind closed doors. Instead those fans who had walked out early jeered England’s players and demanded Southgate’s sacking at the final whistle.
