Although Sancho picked up a knock in training on Wednesday, he will still remain with the squad.

Southgate said:

"We've got a small knock with Jadon this morning, so we are going to assess him. Everybody else I think is fine for the game.”

Southgate believes this game could be “pivotal” to their World Cup qualifying chances.

The Three Lions top the group ahead of Hungary and after Thursday’s game, they are going to face Andorra at Wembley on Sunday and then travel to play Poland on Wednesday.

He said:

"I think the two away games this week are both going to be hugely challenging. They're good teams. They're obviously pivotal games in terms of qualification.

"You can't predict what your hardest games are going to be, but we know that Hungary are a very good side and sit second in the group.

"The team has gained confidence from what they achieved and the progress they've made, not only this summer but over the last four years.

"But equally we have to start again. The journey to having the chance of another run like that in a tournament is underway. We have got to be at our very best.

"Mentally it's a good test for us. Away from home, 60,000 fans and a very good team we're playing against."
