England and Wales face off in Qatar tonight for the 104th time – however it will be the first time the two nations have met in a World Cup.
Following the Three Lions’ draw with the USA, it remains all to play for in Group B with elimination and qualification yet to be decided heading into the final day of games.
England will seal their place in the round of 16 if they can avoid a 4-0 to Rob Page’s Welshmen, while a draw will also see them through – but as runners up if Iran are victorious in the other game of the evening.
Wales need to take all three points at the Al Rayyan Stadium to have any chance of extending their stay in Qatar.
It is rumoured Gareth Southgate will make several changes to his line-up tonight, with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Phil Foden, and Marcus Rashford set to make their first starts of the tournament.
