England vs Wales: Kick-off time, TV channel and team news for World Cup clash

England take on Wales in their final Group B game of the World Cup with both sides still in with a chance of progressing through to the last 16.

Gareth Southgate’s side sit top of the group on four points, having battered Iran 6-2 in their opener, before playing out a stodgy 0-0 draw against the US.

The Three Lions only need to avoid a defeat by four goals or more to qualify for the next round.

Meanwhile, Wales are in a more precarious position. Rob Page’s side need to win and hope that the match between the US and Iran ends with a draw to qualify for the last 16.

England vs Wales team news

Southgate will be working with a fully-fit squad for the first time since arriving in Qatar, after welcoming James Maddison back to training.


Kyle Walker’s return to fitness could see the Manchester City full-back challenge Kieran Trippier for a right-back spot.

Furthermore, the Daily Mail claim 19-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham will be replaced by Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson in the starting lineup.

There have also been plenty of calls for Phil Foden to feature after Friday’s tepid game against the US. The 22-year-old could challenge Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka for a spot on the right wing.

Meanwhile, Wales’ number one, Wayne Hennessey, is unavailable after a red card against Iran. Leicester keeper Danny Ward will almost certainly start in his place.


Elsewhere, Joe Allen is back fit after overcoming a hamstring injury. The Swansea man came off the bench in Wales’ 2-0 loss against Iran on Friday morning.
