England will be looking to bounce back from their lacklustre draw against the United States as they seek the win that would send them into the World Cup last 16 as group winners.
Three points against Wales will be enough for them to claim top spot in Group B, while a point will be enough to progress, but they also need to improve on their showing in Friday’s stalemate with the USA – where Gareth Southgate‘s side were heavily criticised following a poor performance.
Wales, meanwhile, are on the brink of elimination following a 2-0 defeat by Iran. They must now defeat England, and if it isn’t by more than four goals Rob Page’s side must also hope that Iran and USA play out a draw.
England were poor in their 0-0 draw against the United States and will look to bounce back
But even if their progression hopes now look slim, they would love nothing more than to at the very least dent old rivals England and their chances going forward in Qatar.

Wales vs England: Team news
Wales will be without first choice keeper Wayne Hennessey through suspension following his red card against Iran and that will likely see Danny Ward replace him in goal.
Joe Allen overcame injury to feature against Iran and he does not look to have suffered any reoccurrence heading into the crunch clash.
England didn’t appear to suffer any knocks following their match with the United States but Gareth Southgate could be tempted to freshen up his side given the poor performance put in after their second group game.
That could see starts for either Jack Grealish and Phil Foden to add creativity in their attack in place of Mason Mount as the Three Lions chase down not just a last-16 place but a chance to go through as group winners.
