Germany hit five to humiliate European champions Italy; England humbled by Hungary – Nations League round-up

European champions Italy endured a humiliating night in Monchengladbach, as they were thrashed 5-2 by Germany in the UEFA National League.

Joshua Kimmich began the rout after 10 minutes before an Ilkay Gundogan penalty, a Thomas Muller effort and a quickfire double from Chelsea’s Timo Werner. Italy’s consolations came from Wilfried Gnonto and Alessandro Bastoni.

England slumped to a dismal 4-0 defeat at the hands of Hungary at Molineux.

A double from Roland Sallai and late efforts from Zsolt Nagy and Daniel Gazdag condemned Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions to a hefty loss and their fourth game without a win in Group A3 of the competition.

To compound the hosts’ misery, defender John Stones was sent off for a second bookable offence eight minutes from time.

The results put Hungary top of the group, a point ahead of Germany and two above Italy, with England three points adrift at the bottom.
