Update: 23.09.2022 22:57

Prague – In the fifth round of the League of Nations, Hungarian footballers sensationally won 1:0 in Germany and are close to progressing to the Final Four before the last day of play. The second-placed Italians are two points behind the leaders of Group A3, the first place will be decided by Monday’s match in Budapest. The “Azzurri” beat England 1:0 at home today, which was relegated from the elite group.

The Hungarians followed up on an equally surprising 4-0 win in England and handed the Germans their first defeat in this year’s League of Nations. Ádám Szalai decided the visitors’ triumph in the 17th minute after a corner kick with a spectacular foot. Germany failed to beat Hungary for the third time in a row.

England lost to Italy in a replay of last year’s Euro final and did not win even in the fifth game in the group. The only scorer of the match at San Siro was striker Raspadori, who beat goalkeeper Pope in the 68th minute with a shot from the edge of the box.

The Albion selection is 1-7 and has yet to score other than a penalty kick. Only San Marino has the same negative balance in this year’s League of Nations.

Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Montenegro 1:0 at home and secured promotion from Group B3 with a round to go.
