Wales vs England: Predicted lineup, Injury news, head-to-head

The Three Lions can seal qualification with a victory.

Wales and England will face off at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Tuesday in their final group game, with both sides keen to end the group stages on the strongest note possible. The Dragons got their big moment on matchday one, holding the USA to a 1-1 draw, courtesy a late penalty from Gareth Bale.

Even with 11 men on the pitch against Iran, Wales never really looked like scoring – with Page describing his side’s pre-red card performance as “not acceptable.” Their winless streak in all competitions now stands at an abysmal seven matches. If the three lions get all three points against wales they will top the group. Here’s all you need to know about this clash.

Kick-Off: 12:30 AM (IST), 7 PM (GMT)

Wales Form (All Comps):  L-L-L-D-L

England Form (All Comps): L-L-D-W-D

Injury & Team News

Wales will be without first-choice goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey after the 35-year-old picked up a straight red in his side’s defeat against Iran. Danny Ward, who started all four matches at Euro 2020, will be in goal for this one.

England captain, Harry Kane, was photographed with his ankle bandaged up following the draw against the USA, having previously picked up a knock against Iran. There are no fresh injury concerns for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Players To Watch

Gareth Bale

Bale’s pace and ability to pick out the pockets within the defence are unmatched. Even though he is playing in the MLS, he is still capable of troubling the best defenders in the world. His performance will be very important for Wales if they want to go into the knockout stages. He will play a very crucial role in the attacking department.

Bukayo Saka

At 21 years old, Bukayo Saka has emerged as a vital cog for Premier League leaders Arsenal. Now at his second major international tournament, he will be looking to lead the Three Lions to their first World Cup title since 1966. Saka’s performance in the previous matches for his country and club has been amazing and his athletic and dribbling ability can cause a lot of trouble for the opposition teams.

Wales vs England: Prediction

Facing their most important game in recent memory against a British rival, a galvanized Wales should not be counted out on the mentality side of things. However, their on-pitch endeavours against Iran left a lot to be desired. Wales have no choice, but to go all out in order to win this game, with only a heavy win giving the Dragons a chance of qualification from Group B. But still, this England squad has a lot of quality and it is very much capable of defeating Wales.

Prediction: Wales 0-1 England
