    Time:90'
    • England
    • Hungary
    • 90+3 Hungary have bodies forward but the flag is up for offside. There's the whistle, England win and it has to be said that it was a good performance.
    • 90+2 For once Zamora with a poor touch, trying to lay it off to Young but getting it wrong. Jagielka now gives it away but Young is back to win a tackle.
    • 90+1 WONDERFUL SAVE FROM KIRALY! From Zamora, who put in a brilliant header from the corner.
    • 90' JOHNSON FIRES JUST OVER! A long-range shot after a nice touch in from Wilshere, Kiraly getting a touch so a corner.
    • 89' Corner to Hungary as they put in some late pressure but Komlosi's header is well wide.
    • 88' GREAT SAVE HART! Priskin and Gera with a give and go embarassed England's centre-halves but Hart raced out Schmeichel-style to bat out Gera's finish.
    • 86' Young shows some tricky feet on the left as Gibbs gets hold of it and does really well again but the cross veers just out.
    • 85' Gerrard is announced as a man-of-the-match and the crowd cheer.
    • 83' The Johnsons combine and it's put in for ZAMORA but Kiraly gets a hand on it first. Wilshere's first touch is a naughty tackle. No card though.
    • 83' ENGLAND SUB: Gerrard is NOT booed as he comes off to applause, and Jack Wilshere is on in his place.
    • 82' The corner is sent far post AND ZAMORA WITH THE HEADER but Kiraly tips over.
    • 81' Corner to England as Gibbs again races forward down the left. Zamora again involved. Having a hold-up striker who can control the ball is nice.
    • 80' Zamora with a backheel that is just behind Gerrard after some good build up. Zamora gets another bite at it, he feeds Gerrard who finds Young but a throw is all they get from that.
    • 79' Barry gives away a free-kick just inside his own half. Hart in control claims easily.
    • 78' Johnson on the right finds Glen but his cross is poor and easy for Kiraly.
    • 77' Zamora with another great first touch killing a long ball dead. Now Johnson inside to Gerrard but his cutback is behind Zamora.
    • 75' Johnson gives away a free-kick 25 yards out... Hajnal into the wall.
    • 74' ZAMORA JUST OVER! He takes a long ball on the shoulder 30 yards out and spins off the defender before smashing an outrageous volley that Kiraly somehow tipped over! The ref misses the touch though and doesn't give a corner.
    • 73' Zamora holds it up for Young, who feeds Gerrard, who beats one man with a killer first touch, and another, and another and he pokes it past Kiraly for 2-1! What a goal!
    • 72' Young's corner is cleared but England still have it. They'll press and press until they get a second now.
    • 71' Well Gibbs is making some really good runs into the box from left-back, winning a corner after a one-two with Young.
    • 70' Gerrard with an emotional celebration towards the fans, begging them to rally behind England.
    • 69' GERRARD! WHAT A GOAL! 1-1! He got hold of the ball 30 yards out, cut inside and smashed a brilliant right-footer dipping past Kiraly into the back of the net. A deserved equaliser.
    • 68' Young on the left cuts in and has a shot but spoons it over.
    • 67' Decent play by Gibbs on the left but his cross is too close to Kiraly.
    • 66' Rooney comes off to boos and gives a little wave to the fans. Milner on.
    • 65' Gerrarrd crosses in but Laczko heads away from Rooney. Young finds Gibbs on the left now and he fizzes a good cross in but away from everyone and out for a throw.
    • 64' Johnson wins a free-kick on the edge of the box after a superb run. Laczko booked.
    • 63' MORE goal-line controversy for England. Dawson stopped that crossing the line, but the linesman flagged for a goal. The irony.
    • 62' GOAL HUNGARY! Dawson made a bad mistake to let Gera in, he thought he'd got back in time to clear the ball off the line as Hajnal's ball I think took a deflection off Jagielka.
    • 61' Rooney wins a free-kick which he takes too quickly but Johnson manages to head it back to his namesake Glen.
    • 59' Looks like another change for Hungary... Toth on for Elek.
    • 58' Gibbs inside to Rooney, now Johnson on the right but he opts to stroke a shot in instead of looking for Zamora who was free. Saved by Kiraly.
    • 57' Zamora is caught by Julahsz on the right to win a free-kick. It's launched into the box, Kiraly flaps but just gets it clear.
    • 56' Gerrard to take this I think, right centre and more like 30 yards out... No Johnson takes it but his attempt to roll it in to Gerrard with the dummy run hits the wall. D'oh. It falls to Johnson again, who hammers it over.
    • 55' HUNGARY SUB: Liptak comes off for Komlosi
    • 55' Hart claims a long ball as the home fans panic a bit. England start an attack as Rooney wins a free-kick 25 yards out.
    • 54' Zamora holds it up for Rooney, who slides in Johnson but great defending by Laczko again to get ahead of him to clear last-gasp.
    • 53' Zamora on the ball as he moves forward, Johnson moves outside him but Zamora's ball in is a touch poor.
    • 53' Lovely skill from Johnson on the right, Adam that is, but Laczko - who seems to foul him - brings the ball away.
    • 52' Gerrard lobs it over! Great play as Rooney slid Zamora in on the right, he holds it up for Rooney who lays it off for Gerrard but his finish is just over the bar. More like it.
    • 51' Rooney with a super through ball to Young on the left, he races away and crosses low but too far ahead of Zamora as the defenders hold the line and the ball spins away.
    • 50' Barry is caught in possession but wins it back, only for the ball to spin into his arm. England win it back though...
    • 49' Lovely scooped ball by Koman to Rudolf, sending him in but he handballs it and is booked. Harsh to book him as it came off his chest before hitting his arm.
    • 48' Zamora wins a loose ball and Young can free him but tries to take on the defenders and loses the ball.
    • 48' A short corner sees Johnson and Young exchange passes and Young knocks a wicked cross far post but just beyond the arriving white shirts.
    • 47' Gibbs to Rooney but he's crowded out. Young picks it up on the left now and wins a corner off Liptak.
    • 46' The second half is underway. Young is on the left now, with Johnson on the right allowing him to cut inside.
    • - Ha! So it's 4-4-2 again. Who'd have thunk it.
    • - ENGLAND SUBS: Three debuts! Gibbs on for Cole, Dawson on for Terry and Zamora is on for Lampard. Walcott takes a bow as Young comes on.
    • - Looks like we might be seeing Bobby Zamora... there are definitely going to be changes.
    • - Did you think that was a half worth booing? I would have understood boos before the game kicked off but there were none and it was a decent 45 by England, albeit with no goals.
    • 45+1 Eight seconds of stoppage time but no more, half-time and goalless. And now the fans boo.
    • 45' Lampard threads it through to Rooney but the United striker is muscled out and almost has a dig in frustration at Juhasz.
    • 44' A long ball aimed for G. Johnson is too long and flies out. Less of that please.
    • 43' A bit of nonsense as Rooney tries a lob but the whistle had gone anyway.
    • 42' Rooney has a shot from a very long way out which hits Juhasz and flies away for a corner. Gerrard puts it on Jagielka's head but the whistle has gone for some grappling by Rooney on Vanczak.
    • 41' Adam Johnson puts it far post but Rooney gets under it to head over.
    • 41' Jagielka wins the ball high up the pitch. England get a free-kick, Lampard has it, up in the air and knocked behind for a corner.
    • 40' Johnson weaves in and out of Szelesi before digging out a cross but the visiting defence clear easily enough.
    • 39' Rooney and Adam Johnson combine really well but Liptak slides in on Rooney who was almost in down the left.
    • 38' Glen Johnson with a nice run inside and the pass frees Lampard just inside the box but it comes off his heel and Hungary clear.
    • 37' Lampard almost sets Gerrard free but just behind him. Rooney can't get his foot on the ball and Lampard slides in to put it out for a throw.
    • 36' England get a free-kick on the left, by halfway, after a handball. Rooney a touch isolated now.
    • 35' Gerrard tries a through ball but straight at Vadocz. Gerrard wins it back with a slide tackle but after an exchange with Adam Johnson he can't find Rooney.
    • 34' Gerrard to swing it in with his right... and he sends it under the crossbar for Kiraly to tip over for a corner!
    • 33' Gerrard with a shimmy and a low cross but cleared from Rooney. Lampard frees Walcott, whose touch is heavy but he manages to draw a foul from Szelesi. On the left edge of the box...
    • 32' Walcott almost beats the entire Hungary back four before winning a corner. Adam Johnson with an inswinger but Juhasz heads to touch.
    • 31' After a very promising start some of the fizz has gone out of England as Walcott fouls Vanczak after trying to head it around him.
    • 30' Rudolf gives Jagielka the runaround and feeds Gera but Hart holds on to the low shot with ease.
    • 29' Hustzi delivers but Rooney clears. Back to Hustzi but cleared again. Now Dzsudzsak but Hart claims. Lampard puts a ball through that releases Gerrard, he's in behind but Kiraly reads it and races out to hoof away. Good keeping from Hart to see the opportunity and release the throw.
    • 28' Hustzi goes down very easily after coming face to face with Johnson, who did put a hand on his shoulder. Free-kick Hungary on the left by the corner spot...
    • 27' Dzsudzsak gets inside Cole a bit too easily and has a shot that is heavily deflected over for a corner. Gera commits a foul when winning the header though.
    • 26' Walcott again gets the better of the left-back before clipping in a low, searching cross that beats one man and is cleared by the next. Some better movement from England could have seen someone attack that. Vanczak is down after colliding with Lampard.
    • 25' Walcott cleverly nods a highish ball away from the full-back before crossing. Now Rooney has it before being crowded out and pushing over Juhasz.
    • 24' Barry takes the free-kick from a left-central position but a poor, poor ball, low and int the wall.
    • 23' Walcott againn knocks it around Vanczak but again he is taken out. In a competitive match you'd have seen him booked bynow.
    • 22' Midway through the first half and it is still goalless but England look a completely different team to the one at the World Cup.
    • 21' Super first touch by Cole on the left but his cross is poor, with Rooney in the box.
    • 20' Gerrard catches Dzsudzsak as they challenge for an aerial ball. Taken quickly but Hart claims the long pass.
    • 19' Rudolf is just offside. England counter, Gerrard finds Cole but Liptak nods his cross clear.
    • 18' Lovely first touch by Glen Johnson on the right to find Adam, inside to Rooney, now Gerrard with an audacious backheel but it doesn't quite come off and Hungary get it clear. The crowd roar in approval.
    • 17' Elek has a pop from the right corner of the box but Terry sticks a toe out. Corner, which Hart punches almost to halfway.
    • 16' England are playing the ball around cutely and with a variety of angles to the passes, but Adam Johnson loses control of it before giving away a free-kick. Gera now finds Hustzi but Gera can't get around Barry. Oh dear, Glen Johnson mis-kicks out for a throw. The groans start.
    • 15' Rooney tries a clever pass to Gerrard running through but he gets the angled flick just wrong.
    • 14' Lampard gives away a free-kick on halfway. It comes to nothing though as England get a throw in a similar position.
    • 13' ADAM JOHNSON BLASTS IT OVER! Should have scored, great move as Gerrard found Glen Johnson who slid Walcott in, he got around the full back and cut it back perfectly but the finish wasn't there.
    • 12' Walcott taken out as he knocked it past Vanczak. Free-kick on the right wing, Adam Johnson puts it in but headed away by Gera for a throw.
    • 11' Hustzi takes but the ball swings out for a goal kick first.
    • 10' Almost a thrilling passing move as Rooney nearly sets Cole in with a backheel. Now Walcott runs at pace but is closed out by the defence. A counter is on for Hungary but Jagielka intercepts from Hustzi for a corner.
    • 9' England with some more pressure on Hungary but the visitors are able to clear. Gerrard tries a raking through ball but too close to Kiraly.
    • 8' Short corner routine sees Johnson cross deep but again headed behind for a corner. Kiraly manages to punch this one clear.
    • 7' Walcott skins the full-back and races away down the right but his cross is deflected out for a corner. Gerrard plays it near post and Jagielka attacks the ball but wins another corner.
    • 6' Cole wins a corner on the left after super one-touch combination passing between Lampard, Barry and Johnson. Lampard puts the corner in, half cleared and it drops to JAGIELKA but side netting! Oooh, that was close, the Hungary defence hesitated and he could have scored.
    • 5' Elek flicks the ball towards goal but Hart is placed to gather. Should have done better, was a free-header! England break and Rooney with a tidy turn but Elek is back defending to slide in with an excellent tackle.
    • 4' Barry forced into a foul after a promising run from Johnson is held up.
    • 3' Rooney has the ball in the back of the net from Gerrard's excellent through ball, but he was just offside. Gerrard looking much happier running in to the hole.
    • 3' Lampard swings the ball in from the corner AND JAGIELKA FLICKS IT ON GOAL but just over and the whistle has gone for a foul.
    • 2' Gerrard lofts the ball into the box, Rooney attacks but Liptak heads away for a corner.
    • 2' England keep possession from the kick-off as Glen Johnson's through ball is intercepted. Barry retrieves it and wins a free-kick.
    • 1' England get their first match after the World Cup underway. Wearing all white, from left to right - and 4-2-3-1.
    • 19:55 Well then. There has been no booing from the England fans, just applause and cheers as the teams walk out. Wembley is half-full right now to be fair.
    • 19:50 The teams are lining up in the tunnels at Wembley... they weren't exactly booed while warming up, but it's a different matter now.
    • 19:45 The fans aren't happy with the selection. "So much for the new changes. Use the friendlies to blood younger and inexperienced players and those who actually want to representtheir country," says Pies or Pastieman. "Why are John Terry, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Gareth Barry, Steven Gerrard even in the squad? They should NEVER play for ENGLAND again!" says Stu.
    • 19:40 Hungary have managed to coax Zoltan Gera out of retirement after he fell out with the former coach. That's nice for them. England, meanwhile, lose the likes of Emile Heskey, Paul Robinson and Wes Brown to the dreaded "I don't want to play any more". Massive.
    • 19:35 HUNGARY TEAM: Kiraly, Liptak, Vanczak, Juhasz, Szelesi, Vadocz, Dzsudzsak, Rudolf, Elek, Gera, Huszti; Subs: Fulop, Laczko, Toth, Hajnal, Komlosi, Czvitkovics, Priskin, Vermes, Koman
    • 19:30 What do you think about the decision to keep faith with the core of the World Cup flop team? Should there have been a wholesale revolution? Is Capello merely using this as a chance to show them, with a host of changes at half-time, that the youngsters in reserve are just as good? Does he want them to feel the rough-end of a booing? Or is he simply too conservative to risk blooding a young team?
    • 19:25 A German PhD student has revealed the secrets that helped Germany humiliate England 4-1 at the World Cup. More on that here!
    • 19:20 Before this game, England captain Gerrard said he would probably boo the team as many fans are expected to tonight.
    • 19:15 It appears that Fabio Capello has kept faith with his core players - the real change is the formation. Rooney is a lone striker, with Gerrard playing off him and Johnson and Walcott out wide. 4-2-3-1 it is then.
    • 19:10 No England revolution then - Terry, Johnson, Cole, Lampard, Barry, Gerrard and Rooney all played in the 4-1 defeat to Germany in the World Cup and they start. That is seven from 11, with only David James, Matthew Upson, James Milner and Jermain Defoe dropped. There are no debuts in the first half, with Joe Hart, Adam Johnson and Phil Jagielka having played before. Walcott returns though.
    • 19:05 ENGLAND TEAM: Joe Hart; Phil Jagielka, John Terry, Glen Johnson, Ashley Cole; Frank Lampard, Gareth Barry, Theo Walcott, Steven Gerrard, Adam Johnson; Wayne Rooney; Subs: Scott Loach, Michael Dawson, Gary Cahill, Kieran Gibbs, James Milner, Ashley Young, Jack Wilshere, Carlton Cole, Bobby Zamora, Frank Fielding
