It’s England v Wales!


A clash between neighbouring rivals takes place at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium as Wales and England meet in their final FIFA World Cup 2022Group B encounter.

Wales, on one point after conceding two late goals to lose 2-0 to IR Iran last time out, can only finish above England, on four points, if they beat them by four goals or more. Should they fail to do so, England will qualify for the round of 16.

The 2018 semi-finalists will guarantee top spot with a victory, though there are many possible permutations as to the group’s final placings, with the combination of a Wales win and a draw between IR Iran and the USA taking both British sides through.

The two teams have met 103 times, Wales winning 14 contests and England 68, including the last six, among them the sides’ only previous major tournament encounter, 2-1 at UEFA EURO 2016.

Wales are unbeaten in their previous three World Cup matches against European teams (W1 D2).

England have only failed to qualify from their group once in their last 11 participations in a World Cup final competition.

England have lost only four of their last 25 FIFA World Cup™ group-stage matches (W11 D10).

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.

Gareth Bale has said this won’t be his last game for Wales. Gareth Southgate says England must match Welsh passion.

It’s a World Cup Battle of Britain!
