The Three Lions had back-to-back friendly wins over Ivory Coast and Switzerland in March and these latest fixtures will serve as further preparations for the World Cup finals in Qatar later this year.

The match is scheduled for a 5pm (BST) kick off on Saturday, June 5, 2022.

Budapest’s Puskás Aréna Park will host the match which is officially being played behind closed doors after the Hungarian FA were punished for racist abuse directed towards England players from their fans during the World Cup qualifier in Budapest on September 2.

However, there are expected to be around 3000 Hungarian supporters in attendance due to a loophole which allows children to attend along with one accompanying adult.

However, Hungary put up much more of a fight at Wembley in October and were able to secure a 1-1 draw as they took the lead through a Roland Sallai penalty before John Stones equalised for the Three Lions.

The two nations have faced each other 24 times in their history, with England winning 16, Hungary winning just five and there being three draws.

Hungary have not beaten England since the 1962 World Cup finals.
