NATIONS LEAGUE REVIEW

ENGLAND VS HUNGARY

It hasn’t been a good month for England. Their woes continued at the Molineux stadium as they slipped to a humbling home defeat against the brave Hungary side, who are the new leaders of the group.

The full-time whistle ended with the score line of 0-4 in favour of Hungary as they thrashed the English side away from home. Hungary led with their first shot on goal as Sallai sneaks behind Phillips and smashes a volley past Ramsdale. Just after the halftime, in the 70th minute of the game, Sallai scored again to make it 2-0.

As the chorus of boos breaks the shocking home Fans, Zsolt Nagy scored once again to extend the lead to 3-0. Just when the home fans thought they had seen everything, Daniel Gazdag scored one more and made it 4-0 and a humiliating home defeat for the English players.

Hungary sits on top of group A3 as a massive and lethal defeat saw the tree lions occupy the last spot. So-called the group of death has once more created a shocking result, as we have seen in the past quite a few times.  

GERMANY VS ITALY

An enthralling encounter between the two European giants was a goal fiesta, as we saw Germany bag their first win in the nations league as they trashed Italy 5-2 at the Borussia Park. The German side ends their four consecutive 1-1 draws with their stupendous win. Italy’s unbeaten start to the league came to an end with this defeat.

The home side led the 1st half 2-0 at the break, through their talisman Joshua Kimmich scoring early and then Gundogan converting immaculately from the spot at the end of halftime. The German side didn’t let up in the second half as we saw muller scoring a half-volley and two goals in two minutes from Timo Werner put Germany out of sight. Italy scored twice late in the second half through Gnonto and Bastoni, but it was too late for the European champions.

Germany surpasses Italy to claim the 2nd spot, and Italy slips to the 3rd spot in the table. With both teams left to play England, the encounters could turn up engrossing as the group of death has all its drama left for the end.

POLAND VS BELGIUM

As the competition went ahead, we saw a humble Belgium team beat Poland 1-0 at the Stadion Naradowy. As both the team lacked quality in the final third, a single goal was enough to separate both sides.

Belgium took an early lead in the game as a beautiful cross by Youri Tielemans was headed home by Michy Batshuayi. A header from the centre of the box to the far bottom-right corner to beat the polish goalkeeper. Both the teams later on in the match tried to up the tempo of the game but fell flat every time they tried to build an attack from the back or in a transition.

This win saw the Belgium team strengthening their position in the 2nd spot after their humiliating defeat against the Netherlands, while Poland sat in the 3rd spot with 3 points shy of the Belgium team.  

More shocking results in the nations league await us as the competition and all the groups get stiff and resilient as we move ahead. Stay tuned with the Sportsway for more news and updates!!
