England will face Wales in the FIFA World Cup on November 30th at the Al Rayyan Stadium. This is the final game for both teams in the tournament group stages. England has been termed the favourite to win the group. The three lions haven’t had a better group of players in a long time and will look to make full use of that at the World Cup. Wales will play the World Cup for the first time in 64 years, led by their star man Gareth Bale.
England and Wales have played each other twice before in recent times, with the three lions winning both matches. This fixture has been deemed as the ‘Battle of Britain’. This match will play a pivotal role in deciding which teams will make it into the next phase of the competition.

The following are the fixtures of both teams. They meet each other in the last game of their group. England needs to be in better form leading up to the World Cup. They recently got relegated from the Nations League, which is a significant blow. Wales defeated Ukraine in a thriller, which qualified them for the World Cup. The win was inspirational, and the team will rely on inspiration to do well in the upcoming World Cup.
Things to watch out for
- Most English players play top tier club level leagues like the Premier League and Champions League, the schedule of which is very demanding. They play at least two full fledge games a week until a week before the World Cup. This rigorous level of football means the players will be tired and drained out, which may affect their World Cup performance.
- All eyes will be on national treasure and easily their most important player, Harry Kane, won the golden boot at the previous World Cup. His goal-scoring ability is second to none, and team England relies heavily on him to score goals and lead England to World Cup glory.
