England Vs Wales – England remain favorites despite shaky form while Wales prepare for finals after 64 years

Group B promises to be one of the most mysterious of the eight at this year’s Football World Cup. Much remains to be learned about each of the four teams that will face each other in less than a month. Naturally, England are the clear favorites to make it out of the group stage despite a rather pathetic performance ahead of Qatar World Cup.

Iran returns to the Football World Cup for the third consecutive tournament after a strong performance in Russia in 2018. Meanwhile, Wales is returning to the world stage for the first time since 1958 with mascot Gareth Bale poised to be the catalyst to write further history. . The US, by contrast, is facing enormous pressure, especially with coach Gregg Berhalter, as adequate play is required ahead of the 2026 home FIFA World Cup.

England

Who’s the manager? 

Like all English managers, Gareth Southgate enters the Football World Cup under a weight of expectations. Simply put, he feels like a trophy or overkill for the longtime England manager. Much has been made of Southgate’s tenure, including reaching the semi-finals of the previous FIFA World Cup and the Euro 2020 final.

On both occasions, England were outplayed and reconsidered after relatively easy draws. Southgate’s current contract with the FA expires at the end of 2024, so there is no need to sign a new contract just yet. How reliable he is in his position will become known only after the tournament.

Who’s the star man?  

Harry Kane is not only the talisman of England, but also its leader and best player. In all likelihood, the Three Lions will go as far as Kane can score. Although the 29-year-old is able to immerse himself deeply in the affairs of others, Kane has always been at the forefront of England’s success.

The Tottenham striker took home the golden boot in Russia and hopes to be among them again. Perhaps the striker’s firepower won’t be as critical in the group stage, but after that it could be invaluable if they want to go further than in Russia.

How did they qualify?

England qualified easily, as is often the case these days. Southgate’s side have won eight of their 10 qualifiers, with two draws against Hungary and Poland. A 10-0 victory over San Marino in November marked the first time England had reached double figures since 1964.

Fixtures

England have, on paper at least, their easiest group game against Iran on 21 November and this should allow the Southgate team to pick up the pace. From there they face a decisive second game against the US on 25 November and having met in 2010 where they drew 1-1, England will be well aware of the pitfalls against their cross-Atlantic rival.

Depending on how the result unfolds, the final group game against Wales on 29 November could be a decider or a draw.

Tournament history

England won the Football World Cup once, in 1966, but have lacked success ever since. At the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, they finished fourth after losing 2-0 to Belgium for third place in the playoffs. Russia was closest to England after the 1990 World Cup in Italy. Steps back in Qatar may well sound the alarm around Southgate.

United States 

Who’s the manager? 

Gregg Berhalter has been hit by a wave of outside pressure as USMNT pundits and fans have grown weary of their defensive tactics and lackluster performances ahead of the Football World Cup. He became a USMNT coach back in 2018, arriving from the MLS Columbus Crew franchise after the US lost humiliatingly 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago, robbing them of their chance of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The 49-year-old represented the United States at the 2002 and 2008 World Cups Football.

Who’s the star man?   

Christian Pulisic is undeniably the face of American football and his creative presence will be needed if the US has a chance to make it past the group stage. Although the 24-year-old has not had the most productive Premier League campaign for Chelsea, he will need to wipe off all the rust before the first game, a huge opportunity for the Stars and Stripes.

How did they qualify? 

At times, the US hasn’t been the most convincing team during Football World Cup qualifiers, especially away. Although they were able to finish in last place in the CONCACAF qualifiers behind Canada and Mexico, Berhalter’s men only broke their ticket to Qatar Football World Cup during the penultimate game against Panama.

Fixtures 

With England expected to emerge as group winners, the USMNT opener on November 21 against Wales looks absolutely huge in who will come in second. From there, Berhalter’s team will play England on November 25th before finishing the group against Iran on Tuesday November 29th.

Tournament history 

The US has not competed in a Football World Cup since 2010 in South Africa, where they drew 1-1 against England. Their best result remains third in Uruguay in 1930 – that was a long time ago! Berhalter was part of the 2002 team that reached the quarter-finals – their best finish since then – but a repeat would require a monumental group performance to beat England and Wales.

Wales 

Who’s the manager? 

Rob Page got the job full-time in June after Ryan Giggs stepped down. It was well deserved for Page after leading Wales to their first Football World Cup in 64 years, earning him a four-year contract. Page was previously an assistant to Giggs and, before that, coach of his country’s under-21 team. The 48-year-old has represented the Dragons 41 times over a 10-year period.

Who’s the star man?    

Definitely Gareth Bale. The former Real Madrid star and current LAFC star has long been a star in Wales. Although the prime of his career is fading into the past, Bale is often more than capable of creating magical moments to elevate his nation to a level beyond all expectations. The 33-year-old scored twice in a 2-1 Football World Cup qualifier semi-final win over Austria and provided the decisive assist against Ukraine to secure their place in Qatar World Cup.

How did they qualify? 

Wales made their way to the Football World Cup at the last moment and became the last European team to qualify thanks to a 1-0 play-off win over Ukraine. The Dragons only lost once in the qualifying period, a heavy 3-1 loss to Belgium , and so they had to settle for reaching the playoffs.

Fixtures

Similarly for the USMNT, the newcomer for Wales is absolutely massive in terms of progress. This match on 21 November is followed by a second group match against Iran on 25 November before the Battle of Britain with England on 29 November. For more know about Football World Cup Tickets.

Tournament history 

Wales doesn’t have the rich history of playing in the most famous tournament in the world as their British neighbors. This will be only their second appearance at the World Championships. On their debut, Wales reached the quarter-finals of Sweden 1958. Anything close to that and the nation will explode.

Iran 

Who’s the manager? 

Carlos Queiroz will be on Iran’s touchline, but he was not present during the Football World Cup qualifiers. This will be his third FIFA World Cup with a Middle Eastern country. Iran fired his predecessor, Dragan Skocic, in July after reports surfaced of indiscipline at a training camp in Qatar.

Queiroz, Iran’s longest-serving coach, returned in September to a position he first held in 2011. The Mexican is known to have been Sir Alex Ferguson’s number two at Manchester United in 2002-03 and 2004-08.

Who’s the star man?    

It is expected that the Iranian campaign will rest on the broad shoulders of Sardar Azmoun. Before Newcastle signed Alexander Isak, Azmoun was reportedly Toon’s target in January. The 27-year-old has only made eight appearances for Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen this season and has yet to score. Although he hasn’t shown it this season, he is an impressive finisher and as the chances are likely to be small, it’s important that he take them.

How did they qualify? 

Iran topped Group A ahead of South Korea and finished in one of the four automatic qualifying spots available to Asian nations. Iran entered Qatar World Cup after eight wins, one draw and a loss in 10 games. Despite opposition including Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, Iran has had impressive spells – conceding just four goals and scoring 14.

Fixtures

Largely unclaimed in the group – and with 500/1 to win it all – Iran would make a real statement of intent if they could upset England at their November 21st opening. From there they will play Wales four days later before finishing Group B against the United States on 29 November.

Tournament history 

Iran has made it to the Football World Cup more often than you might think. The country has played five matches before Qatar World Cup, that is, three matches in 12 years. Despite willing performance, in particular, in Russia, Iran did not pass the group stage of the tournament.
