England picked up a 1-1 draw with Hungary in the World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday night.

Rolland Sallai opened the scoring for Hungary, however, just a few minutes later John Stones equalised the score, handing both sides an equal point.

In the 62nd minute of the game Jack Grealish got subbed with Bukayo Saka, and he seemingly wasn’t happy about that.

The Manchester City attacker was shaking his head and muttering under his breath, before refusing to take a bottle of water from a staff member who offered him one.

It was a surprising decision from Gareth Southgate to take Grealish, who had been playing really well, off, as it comes with the territory of being in a team filled with stars in every position.

“We wanted to change the shape to pose a different problem but also to stop the counter attacks, and you have to take one of the forwards off to do that,” Southgate explained.

 

“That made us less vulnerable but it didn’t really improve our attacking play. There were individual pieces of skill rather than fluid team movements.”

 

The Three Lions are leading the Group I standings with 20 points and are yet two games to play to get a chance for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
