ENGLAND were humbled by Hungary on Tuesday night as they suffered a humiliating 4-0 home defeat in the Nations League.
It was the Three Lions worst loss at home for nearly a century – stretching all the way back to 1928.
But, somehow,it could have been worse for Southgate's current crop, as a look through England's five heaviest ever shows….
Brazil 5-1 England (1964)
Just two years before their World Cup triumph, Sir Alf Ramsey's England were destroyed 5-1 by Brazil in Rio de Janeiro.
It was a Brazilian team which featured the likes of Pele, Carlos Alberto and Rinaldo, so it is no surprise the Three Lions found it tough going.
But in the following major tournament Brazil would shockingly fail to make it out of their group, while England went on to lift the trophy.

England 0-4 Hungary (2022)
Tuesday evening's dismal display was England's heaviest home defeat for 94 years.
A first half goal from Roland Sallai gave the visitors the lead at the break.
And Sallai doubled his tally 20 minutes from time, before Zsolt Nagy and Daniel Gadzag compounded Gareth Southgate's misery and left his side facing Nations Leage relegation.
England 1-5 Scotland (1928)
The only home defeat as heavy as the Hungary loss on Tuesday night came way back in 1928.
And the loss was made even worse by the fact that it was rivals Scotland who inflicted the thrashing.
Alex Jackson scored a hat-trick in front of 80,000 fans at Wembley and that Scottish team would go on to be given the tag "the Wembley Wizards".

Yugoslavia 5-0 England (1958)
Four years prior to their worst ever defeat, England were on the end of another dismal loss.
Aleksandar Petakovic scored a second half hat-trick as the Three Lions went down 5-0 against Yugoslavia.
One month later England would also be knocked out of the World Cup in the group stage.
Hungary 7-1 England (1954)
Surprisingly, Tuesday's Nations League defeat was not England's heaviest ever loss to Hungary.
That came back in 1954 when Ferenc Puskas scored twice as they thumped the Three Lions 7-1 in Budapest.
The performance was so bad that two players – Peter Harris and Jackie Sewell – were never capped by England again.
