Gareth Southgate can secure England’s place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with a point on Monday evening.

In truth, it is almost impossible to imagine a scenario in which England do not win comfortably tonight and join the likes of Serbia and Spain in having booked their place at the tournament, though perhaps we shouldn’t expect a completely rotated team.

Indeed, Harry Kane could start following his hat-trick against Albania on Friday evening as he closes in on Wayne Rooney’s all-time international goalscoring record.

Elsewhere, Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe could get his first start at international level in what looks like the most favourable of tasks for England to guarantee their entry to the World Cup.

Arriving in good form, England could once again rack up the goals and sign off from international duty this year in style.

Prediction

The only question is how many goals England will score.

Hungary scored four against San Marino on Friday and the minnows have conceded 47 times in their 11 matches so far in 2021.

After scoring a hat-trick against Albania to draw level with Jimmy Greaves on 44 England goals, Harry Kane will be eyeing another hatful.

Early team news: Gallagher and Smith-Rowe could be involved

The midfielder has been drafted in by Gareth Southgate after Jordan Henderson, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw withdrew from the squad.

Henderson and Grealish have returned to Liverpool and Manchester City for further assessment on injuries.

Sterling will miss the game due to a personal matter.

Mount and Shaw will not join up with the squad. Mount will stay with Chelsea after having wisdom teeth out and Shaw is still recovering from concussion.

Emile Smith Rowe will be hoping for more action after making his England debut against Albania.
