Why is England vs Hungary at Molineux and not Wembley? | The Sun

ENGLAND are set to take on Hungary as they look for revenge for defeat in Budapest last week.

The Three Lions were beaten 1-0 in front of 40,000 children in their away Uefa Nations League match.

But they'll have to get used to different surroundings as they take on the Hungarians in the West Midlands, rather than at Wembley.

Why is England vs Hungary at Molineux instead of Wembley?

England played Italy at Molineux after the weekend after Uefa ordered the game to be held behind closed doors.

The Three Lions were handed a stadium ban for crowd trouble in the Euro 2020 final against the Italians.

However, thanks to a change in Uefa rules, three thousand children were invited to watch the match.

And following Uefa's decision, the FA decided to lease Wembley out for the Capital Radio's Summertime Ball on Sunday.

England will also play at Molineux against Hungary at home on Tuesday night.

This match will be played in front of a full crowd with tickets sold as normal.

With the team already playing Italy at Wolves' ground, it was decided to use the same venue for the Hungary fixture.

What has been said?

England boss Gareth Southgate told the FA website in February: “While Wembley is our home, we very much enjoy taking the squad on the road where possible, particularly in the run up to a major tournament.

“2022 promises to be an exciting adventure for England fans and it is great that one of English football’s famous stadiums will be a part of that.

“I know from my time in charge of the U21s how much a Molineux crowd embraces the experience of international football, so we look forward to returning to Wolverhampton in June.”
