Hungary's new coach says he expects to face a different England from the one that disappointed at the World Cup when the sides meet at Wembley on Wednesday.
"The big teams that failed in South Africa, like England, had played too many league games and their players weren't fresh," said Sandor Egervari.
"After a holiday and a pre-season, they will be fresher," he told BBC Sport.
"Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard are still world-class, playing in the best league in the world."
England's poor showing in South Africa, culminating in a 4-1 defeat by Germany in the last 16, angered many fans and prompted the Football Association to cut ticket prices for Wednesday's match in an attempt to win back disgruntled spectators.
