England will look to bring their 2022 Nations League campaign to life on Tuesday night, while Wales face an in-form Netherlands and Scotland take on Armenia.
Ahead of the final round of Nations League summer fixtures, we preview the key action below.
England v Hungary
The togetherness and confidence of Euro 2020 seems to have all but disappeared for an England side that have failed to register a win so far from their three games in 2022’s Nations League.
Perhaps symptoms of an incredibly long domestic season – which saw most of the squad reaching the final stages of major competitions and some starting almost 50 fixtures – England look burnt out.
They have struggled to find any real rhythm or flow but still go into Tuesday’s fixture at Molineaux as clear favourites with odds of 1/4 and are likely to be driven by their recent 1-0 loss to Hungary – a team considered by many to be relatively easy opposition. Hungary are 11/1 for victory on Tuesday.
Harry Kane, as usual, is the most likely to score first in the tie at 7/2 – odds boosted from 23/10 – having saved England with an equaliser in the away fixture against Germany.
James Ward-Prowse has looked relatively comfortable since his addition to the squad and is 10/1 to unleash one of his rockets and score from outside of the box – odds boosted from 6/1.

Armenia v Scotland
Winning 2-0 against Armenia in their first Nations League fixture, Scotland will be confident they can get a repeat result on Tuesday against an Armenia side that also lost 3-0 to Ukraine last week.
However, a disheartening 3-0 loss to local rivals Republic of Ireland for Scotland last time out may dampen the mood in the dressing room, which is surely still suffering from the loss to Ukraine which saw the Scots fail to qualify for the World Cup for a sixth time in a row.
Scotland are, nonetheless, still strong favourites at 8/15 to claim their second win of the campaign and a victory here would reignite their Nations League chances. Armenia, meanwhile, are 11/2 to claim the three points.
Odds for Ryan Christie to score and Scotland to win are enhanced to 5/2 from 15/8, while John McGinn, who is always a key player for the side, to have over one shot on target is priced at 5/1 – enhanced from 3/1.
Netherlands v Wales
Wales have suffered a mixed start to their Nations League campaign. Even though they have suffered two losses out of three and drawn the other, they have played well against the top-level opposition they have faced.
Narrowly losing 2-1 to Netherlands in the 94th minute of the game, after a 92nd minute equaliser from Rhys Norrington-Davies appeared to have salvaged a point, Wales had 43 percent possession and managed to match the Dutch’s eight shots.
They were just as good in their 1-1 fixture with Belgium while a 2-1 loss against Poland was another game that saw late drama. Wales had gone ahead through Jonny Williams early in the second half but conceded in the 72nd minute and then again in the 85th minute.
Heading into Tuesday’s game, Wales are heavy underdogs at 17/2 to claim a first ever victory against the Dutch, though Gareth Bale could be likely to score in the game at odds of 3/1. Netherlands are the 3/10 favourites for victory.
Wales’s inability to keep a clean sheet in this campaign, combined with the quality of Netherlands, sees a 2-0 Netherlands win at 5/1 as the most likely correct score.
