England manager Gareth Southgate took full responsibility for his team’s ‘painful’ home defeat against Hungary on what he described as a ‘chastening night’ for his side. Southgate said he ‘didn’t get the balance right’ between giving young players opportunities and having enough senior players to ‘perform at the level that they needed’. He insisted that their 4-0 home defeat by Hungary in the Nations League would not be mentally damaging for his players, despite the fact that it was the national side’s worst loss at home for 96 years. England are bottom of their group after four games and have yet to score a goal from open play.
