England captain Harry Kane believes it is not time to panic after Tuesday’s 4-0 defeat at home to Hungary in the National League.
The three Lions parted ways at the Mullunux Stadium, with the late Roland Saline Bracket added by Zolt Nagy and Daniel Gazdag, with a red card for John Stones.
The defeat leaves England in Group A3.
Following the defeat, 28-year-old Gareth Southgate did something different to move the team forward and qualify for this year’s World Cup.
“It’s a very frustrating question to ask. Let’s not forget where we came from, ”he told the BBC.
“Garz is one of the key players in making this English team one of the most successful teams in the last 50 years.
“I know it’s frustrating for the fans. It has become a frustrating camp, it always creates something amazing football, we have to see the big picture. We’ve had two great races in a row. This is not the time to panic. It’s a frustrating loss but we know we have something to do calmly.

Southampton have made three appearances in four games, with Juding Bellingham and Connor Gallagher joining Calvin Phillips in midfield.
England controlled 68.6 per cent of the ball, but England had two of their best chances – Ken hitting the bar – but his goal-scoring prowess was a solid defender.
Stones’ dismissal and two more goals gave Hungary a frustrating international window of engagement as he struggled to translate ball control into goal.
Ken insisted that England create chances after the game, but realizing in front of goal is the main issue of this camp and the cause of the results.
“I thought we had enough chances in the first half, but this is the history of our league so far in this camp,” he told Channel 4.
As we did, we went down 2-0 and scored. Look, we have not had such a camp for a long time. This is not the time to panic.
“September is the time to raise our heads, wait for the break now, and come back stronger in September.
“Our defense has been the structure of our success for the last four or five years and it was definitely a night we will forget. We have to take it on its chin.
