Nations League: England's struggles continue as Wales holds Belgium

England winless streak in the UEFA Nations League continued on Saturday after fighting to a goalless draw against Italy in Wolves.

The result leaves the Gareth Southgate side placed bottom of their group after failing to win their first three games.

On a day that saw ten games played, Germany was the other nation to be shocked following their 1-1 draw against Hungary with the latter keeping alive their chances of making the Nations League finals next year. The home side took the lead through Zsolt Nagy just after six minutes but the Hansi Flick's visitors equalized through Jonas Hofmann three minutes later.

The Netherlands rallied from two goals down against Poland to hold them to a 2-2 draw as they maintained a three-point lead at the top of Group A4.

Aston Villa's Matty Cash got the game's opening goal - and it was a fine strike. Piotr Zieliński then doubled Poland's advantage just two minutes into the second period. The home side would level things up with a three-minute double salvo. Davy Klassen netted the first and Denzel Dumfries continued the theme of full-backs scoring by completing the comeback seconds later.

Wales put in another mature performance as they secured a valuable point against Belgium at the Cardiff City stadium.

Youri Tielemans took just six-minute after the break to put the Red Devils but wonder kid Brennan Johnson popped up to secure a draw for Wales with four minutes remaining on the clock.
