England choke on Hungary again

Grealish se lamenta


Hungary was again a hostile land for Englandwhich started the group stage of the Nations League with a 1-0 loss at the Puskas Arena. A stadium that should have been closed by UEFA but was filled with minors who booed the English when they knelt before the start of the game in memory of george floyd.

An episode that was reminiscent of the one lived just nine months ago in the same stadium, where the black players of England were victims of racist shouting and that forced UEFA to sanction Hungary with five games behind the scenes. But the Hungarian federation dodged the punishment and brought together more than 36,000 children under 14 and 3,600 adult companions, who in addition to reproducing the previous racist behavior, played thousands of vuvuzelas that disoriented the English.

That’s the way it is, Southgate’s selection lost after 22 matches unbeatenor what is the same, since November 15, 2020. The end of a great streak for England, which was cornered by rotations: Coady, Justin and Bowen were the novelties in an eleven that did not know how to overcome Hungarymuch more ambitious from the start.

It was difficult for the ‘Three Lions’ to continue their attacks and the one that came out with the most danger was the local team, which after half an hour had already appeared twice in the area of Pickford. The Everton goalkeeper got rid of a shot from Nasty dangerously and let England breathe a littlewho changed plans after the break.

Saka came out in the second half to revolutionize the gamebut the one who did it was Szoboszlai from the penalty spot with a low cross shot to give Hungary 1-0. After the goal against England held on to the set piece to turn the result around, but neither Coady nor Kane managed to focus their shots well and England choked on Hungary. One more time.
