Hungary – England
Following a dramatic defeat against Italy on penalties in the UEFA EURO 2020 final at Wembley. The British will travel to Budapest for the Puskas Arena, which also hosted some exciting summer games. The Hungarians were only six minutes away from reaching the 1/8 finals of the EURO, but allowed the Germans to recoup in Munich and lost their playoff ticket.
According to England head coach Gareth Southgate:
“We know that the Hungarians are showing good results and playing very interesting football for several years now. Just remember the previous European Championship, when they played so well in France.” “At the last EURO they got into the most difficult group and still managed to achieve excellent results. Even in the match with the Portuguese, whom they lost, until the 84th minute there was a zero draw on the scoreboard. So we are expecting a very difficult match and we understand that to win, you will need to play at your highest level “
It’s important to know:
- Italy will play its first match as a UEFA EURO 2020 winner. Florence will be visited by Bulgaria, which Italy beat 2-0 in March when they won three wins in three meetings. Roberto Mancini will do everything to earn the next three points, because on Sunday the Italians will play away with Switzerland.
- The Ukrainian national team had an unsuccessful start in qualification and after the bright EURO 2020 will continue the qualifying cycle with a new coach. The Blues and Yellows will play with Kazakhstan in Nur-Sultan, where they will try to get their first victory in the qualifying tournament.
- Only group winners will receive direct tickets to Qatar, and therefore misfires in matches with direct competitors can be fatal. Denmark will face Scotland, which is four points behind the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-finalists on Wednesday, while Russia will take over Croatia, both with six points in Group H. On Thursday, special attention will be drawn to the match Sweden – Spain and the meeting of the sensationally seized leadership in Group J North Macedonia and Armenia.
