A proud moment for James Justin as he was handed his debut for England by Gareth Southgate. Playing out left in a midfield position, might not be the ideal, but still getting on the field and from start was probably more than expected.

Justin was pulled off after first half to try probably to get a more attacking and offense willing team as well as struggling a bit with his given role.

Jarrod Bowen from West Ham was also handed his debut in the game, given a full outing. Looking at the stats from the game Bowen was by BBC votes the best England player on the field. James Justin did not get too many points and hopefully he will be able to add more experience to his international first challenge.

When Justin withdraw it was still 0-0 and no goals. 2nd half did see Hungary as winners scoring from a Szoboszlai penalty, who also looked to be man of the match according to BBC votes.

England will play Germany and Italy next on the 7th and 11th of June. The last game in this Nations League campaign will take place at Wembley vs. Hungary on the 14th of June.

Despite a bit of struggling debut for James Justin, we certainly hope Gareth Southgate will give our Leicester favorite new opportunities and not make him a one cap wonder.

Leicester fans took to social media after the snub of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, and as we all know still are one cap wonders, but still after a 1-0 defeat vs. a team ranked 40 in the FIFA list of nations you will certainly see the Maddison for England brigade shouting out again.

This was the first time England lost to Hungary since the 1962 World Cup and it must be said to be a bit of surprise that at least a draw was achieved.
