EEngland is more at risk of relegation in the Nations League than ever. In German Group 3, the English suffered a 0:4 (0:1) debacle against Hungary on Tuesday evening. Freiburg’s Roland Sallai (16th minute/70th), Zsolt Nagy (80th) and Dániel Gazdag (89th) scored the goals for the guests in Wolverhampton.
In addition, England defender John Stones (82nd) saw yellow-red for repeated foul play. Coach Gareth Southgate’s side, who were still without a win, remain last, which would ultimately mean relegation to the B-League. The surprisingly strong Hungarians, on the other hand, lead the group ahead of Germany after four matchdays.
Netherlands defeats Wales
The Dutch, coached by former Bayern coach Louis van Gaal, are also on course for the final tournament. Van Gaal’s side are still unbeaten in Group 4, beating Wales 3-2 (2-1) on Tuesday.
Noa Lang (17th) and Cody Gakpo (23rd) scored the goals for the league leaders in Rotterdam. Brennan Johnson (26th) scored for the Welsh – and then things got turbulent. In the second minute of added time, Gareth Bale scored the equalizer with a penalty kick. A few seconds later, Memphis Depay scored the Dutchman’s acclaimed winner.
Things are also going well for Stefan Kuntz and Turkey. The Turks also won their fourth C-League game on Tuesday, beating Lithuania 2-0 (1-0).
Former Bundesliga pros Kaan Ayhan (37′) and Hakan Çalhanoğlu (54′) scored the goals. Turkey remains first, which would ultimately mean the targeted promotion to the B league.
