What channel is England v Hungary World Cup qualifier on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news

Check out how to watch England v Hungary in a World Cup 2022 qualifier this week, including TV and live stream details, team news, predictions and odds.

Hungary England

England take on Hungary as their World Cup qualifiers on TV begin to approach the final straight.


The Three Lions boast an iron grip over Group I with Albania and Poland trailing in their wake. Just three rounds of fixtures remain, including this one.

The best case for Gareth Southgate’s men this week would be a victory over Hungary and a draw between Albania and Poland. That series of results would put England six points clear at the top with a massive goal difference superiority and just two games to play.

England hammered Andorra in typical style at the weekend. Jadon Sancho enjoyed a strong night, Phil Foden lit up the stadium on numerous occasions and Jack Grealish scored his first goal for the national team on the counter attack following a monstrous throw from goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

All in all, it was a flawless evening for England on the continent, but Hungary represent a level up in terms of opposition quality.

Our prediction: England v Hungary

Victory effectively clinches the inevitable for England – automatic qualification for Qatar 2022.

To be able to progress without defeat and with a couple of games to spare would be ideal for Southgate, offering him a little extra breathing room to experiment, albeit against weaker opponents than they’ll face in major finals.

Giving the likes of Sancho, Foden, Grealish and Bukayo Saka the chance to mature on the international stage is crucial for England’s future success. Expect a professional performance, expect total comfort, expect a win-to-nil.

Our prediction: England 2-0 Hungary (4/1 at bet365).
