KEIR RADNEDGE at WEMBLEY: England manager Gareth Southgate conceded his appointment after the 1-1 home draw against Hungary in World Cup European qualifying Group I.

England recovered through John Stones after going behind to an early penalty from Roland Sallai.

Southgate said: “Disappointing. performance. Full credit to Hungary, they caused us a tactical problem and we were not fluid. We did not play at the level we need to play, simple as that. Difficult to pin-point and we will look at the balance of the team. We made simple mistakes with the ball.

“We have to go away and reflect and should not judge things on one game and that experiment. From the start, we were not sharp with our play, gave the ball away, were over-running things and for the first time in a long time we have to hold our hands up today.

“I don’t think we should look at individuals, collectively we did not play at the level we need to.”

Midfielder Declan Rice said: “You can say it is poor because we drew the game but we dominated. Silly penalty to give away but we got back into the game and could not get that killer touch.

“You have to give credit to the opposition sometimes, Hungary were much better than when we played them away. I still think we did enough to win the game.”

Rice, asked about the penalty, said:  “When you put your foot up that high it could be but the way he went down was a bit pathetic.”

England need four points from their last two games to be certain of reaching the finals in Qatar next year.
