After England’s score, Hungary fans booed him and showered him with objects.
After scoring England’s first goal, the crowd booed Raheem Sterling.
After scoring England’s first goal in the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Raheem Sterling was showered with objects from the crowd. The England winger rushed off in triumph to a chorus of boos as he displayed what appeared to be a dedication on his undershirt in genuinely unsavoury scenes.
With no Three Lions fans allowed to go to Budapest to oppose the 60,000 in attendance, England was always going to be in for a rowdy atmosphere.
Following Euro 2020, UEFA ordered Hungary to play two games behind closed doors due to homophobic chants from the spectators.
The order did not apply to the England match because FIFA sanctioned the World Cup qualifier on Thursday.
It was an unsportsmanlike reaction to an opposing team gaining the lead, with Sterling scoring from close range.
Following that, the Manchester City winger turned provider after taking advantage of some sloppy Hungary defending.
Sterling sent up a cross for Harry Kane, who scored with a diving header to put England up 2-0.
After that, Harry Maguire scored from a corner to make it 3-0, and the visitors cruised to victory.
Manager Gareth Southgate had already spoken about how he expected a boisterous atmosphere in Budapest, but claimed that England had the experience to handle it.
“I believe we are aware of our previous experience, but we are traveling to Hungary to prepare for a game in front of a crowd that will rally behind their team, and we are looking forward to the match’s challenge,” he said.
“Everything else is conjecture.
“Of course, we talked to the players about a different climate because we were at home the entire summer save for one game in Rome, but that is the test as a great player,” says the coach.
With England cruising to victory in Hungary, they are on track to maintain their spotless record in World Cup qualifiers this season, with Sterling’s contribution pointing to four wins from four games.
They will host Andorra at Wembley before embarking on a perilous trip to Poland before returning to domestic action.
The match was the Three Lions’ first appearance on the pitch since their heartbreaking loss to Italy in the final of the “Brinkwire Summary News”.
