Football Scores: Hungary 1-0 England

Hungary beat England for the first time in six decades as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the Nations League. Dominik Szoboszlai scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 66th minute. James Justin and Jarrod Bowen were both handed their debuts for England. Justin was forced off due to an injury at half-time while Bowen provided the few bright sparks on the day.

Managers Reaction

England manager Gareth Southgate: “We have to accept we didn’t do enough to win the game. A draw would’ve been fair, we had enough possession, we weren’t incisive around the box, and we didn’t create too many clear-cut chances. It’s been a long season, but I haven’t seen that in training. The heat was a factor, that took a lot out of the players and we tried to refresh the team a bit earlier than we would do normally.”

“That balance of finding out about new things, and the consistent more regular team, I’ve got to look at whether I got that balance quite right. I don’t want to be too harsh on the players, these are games we need to learn from. They’re bitterly disappointed, they want to win matches and if we want to be a team right at the top tier of world football, we have to come here and win. We need to look at this performance and learn from it very quickly.”
