England and Hungary are set to kick off their UEFA Nations League opener this weekend, as Gareth Southgate begins to prepare the Three Lions for the World Cup held later this year.

England will face Hungary at least twice in the competition, as well as compete against fellow group A3 teams Germany and Italy, who defeated England in the Euro 2020 final.

Since their crushing loss to Italy in 2021, England remain unbeaten, and the team are widely predicted to win against Hungary – who last beat England in the 1962 World Cup.

Regardless if you are backing England or Hungary, here’s how you can catch the game at home.

How can I watch England vs Hungary?

The match will be broadcast live on Channel 4, following the channel’s deal with Sky Sports which sees all Three Lions matches screened on the free-to-air station until 2024.

The Hungary vs England match is the first game of this deal.

You can also live-stream the game on All4 on any of your digital devices.

The match takes place at Puskas Arena in Budapest, and the atmosphere at the venue will be a bit of a weird one.

Hungary supporters have been slapped with a two-game ban as a penalty for racist behaviour at the Euros 2020, and so up to 30,000 children will watch the game live instead.
