  • Ten-man Wales couldn’t hold on against Iran, conceded two goals deep into second-half injury time to leave their qualification hopes hanging by a thread going into this final group match.
  • Their only hope of finishing in the top two of Group B is to win here and hope that Iran and United States draw in the other group game, unless they beat England but such an amount that they overtake the Three Lions on goal difference.


  • In a sharp contrast to their opening group victory against Iran, England were lacklustre and short of all creative spark against United States, the match petering out into a 0-0 draw which leaves Gareth Southgate’s side all but through to the knockout stage, but with many questions still to be answered.
  • After being left on the bench last time out, the calls for Man City star Phil Foden to start here will be deafening, whilst striker Harry Kane could be rested, not that he would want to be as he chases Wayne Rooney’s record as England’s highest goalscorer.



PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Roberts, Allen, Ampadu, Ramsey, Williams; Bale, Moore

UNAVAILABLE: Hennessey (Suspended)



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Tripper, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Henderson, Rice; Foden, Mount, Sterling; Kane




  • Wales are unbeaten in their previous three World Cup matches against European nations (W1 D2)
  • Wales are without a win in their last seven international matches (D2 L5)
  • Wales have won only one of their previous seven FIFA World Cup matches (D4 L2)
  • Wales have kept one clean sheet in their previous seven FIFA World Cup matches
  • England have won each of the last six international matches between these two nations; all since the last Welsh victory in 1984
  • England have lost five of their last six World Cup matches against European opposition
  • England have won only two of their last 12 World Cup group stage matches against European opposition (D6 L4)
  • England have only failed to qualify from their group in one of their last 11 participations in a first round group stage in a World Cup final competition
  • England have lost only four of their last 25 FIFA World Cup group stage matches (W11 D10)
  • England have been involved in more goalless draws (12) than any other team in FIFA World Cup history. Brazil have drawn the next most on nine
  • England are three goals away from reaching the landmark of 100 goals scored at FIFA World Cup final competitions
  • Harry Kane is two goals away from equalling Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England
  • This is Gareth’s Southgate’s 10th match as the England coach in a World Cup match. Moving him level with Sven Goran Eriksson and Alf Ramsey, but still behind Walter Winterbottom (14) and Bobby Robson (12)


To underline the size of Wales’ task here, England have beaten them in each of their last six games against each other, conceding just one goal in the process. Although Southgate’s men have all but secured knockout qualification, fans will demand a response to the drab draw against United States and so the England players are expected to put in a much-improved performance. Wales have plenty of fight and won’t be easy to break down, as they showed against Iran despite having goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey sent off. However, England’s extra quality across the pitch should prove decisive, so back the Three Lions to edge victory.
