England remain winless and are last in their Nations League group with two points from four matches, including a 1-0 loss to Hungary in the reverse game earlier this month. Hungary leads the group with seven points, ahead of Germany and Italy. The winners of the group will qualify for the Nations League finals in June, while the last team relegates.

England captain Harry Kane, who delivered some great moments for England and hit the crossbar with a header, admitted his team’s second-half surrender was “unacceptable” but urged the fans to forgive.

“It’s our first big defeat in a long time,” he said. “It’s not time to panic, it’s time to keep our heads up.”

“We have to take it on ourselves and move forward, prepare for the World Cup and we will learn a lot… Let’s not forget where we come from. It won’t be perfect every game.”

Having reached the semi-finals of the last World Cup in Russia and then narrowly lost in last year’s Euro Championship to Italy, England’s hopes are pinned on the World Cup in Qatar at the end of this year. But their poor form in the Nations League baffled fans as they watched the boos rush out of Molineux Stadium.

It was the first time England had lost a home game by four goals or more since March 1928 when Scotland beat them 5-1.
