England to face Hungary in Nations League behind closed doors… but will have 30,000 fans still due to Uefa loophole

A UEFA loophole means England’s behind closed doors clash against Hungary on Saturday will have at least 30,000 fans in attendance.

Hungary were ordered to play three games behind closed doors – with the final one suspended – by Uefa after discriminatory behaviour by their fans at Euro 2020.

Fifa meanwhile imposed two Hungary games to be behind closed doors after vile racist abuse towards England players in a World Cup qualifier last September.

Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham were both subjected to disgusting taunts by shameful Hungarian supporters.

There were also loud boos from the stands when England took the knee before the game, and Gareth Southgate’s stars were pelted with cups.

But the BBC claim at least 30,000 fans are expected to be in the stands at the Puskas Arena when the Three Lions return to Budapest this weekend for their Nations League clash this weekend.

Article 73 of Uefa’s regulations allow children up to 14-years-old from schools and football academies to be invited to the match for free, if they are accompanied by an adult.

Every 10 children are allowed to be accompanied by one adult.

And the Hungarian FA have had 30,000 children sign up to attend Saturday’s game.

England are also expected to make use of the loophole later this month.

The Three Lions were ordered to play two games behind closed doors after the disorder at Wembley before the Euro 2020 final against Italy.

One of those is suspended for 24 months.

The behind closed doors fixture will be at Molineux, home of Wolverhampton Wanderers, on June 11, incidentally against the same opponents.

The FA will reportedly invite a number of U14s clubs within 50-miles of the stadium to apply for free tickets.

But a much lower number will be invited in comparison to the Hungary clash, with only around 2,000 fans are expected to attend.

England travel to Germany on Tuesday after Saturday’s clash against Hungary, before that home fixture against Italy four days later.

Southgate and Co then host Hungary on June 14 in their final fixture of the month.
