    Match Report by Norman Giller

Tottenham team-mates Ian Walker and Sol Campbell came on as substitutes for their first international appearances in England's last home game before the European championships. Another Tottenham player, Darren Anderton, scored two on his return to the team and skipper David Platt maintained his remarkable goal scoring record with the third goal against a Hungarian side that was never allowed to get into its stride.
