Wales vs England preview

Wales are staring down the barrel of World Cup elimination at the group stage. There was much anticipation ahead of the Dragon's first World Cup campaign in more than 35 years, but things haven’t panned out as expected. A limp draw with the USA was followed by a seriously damaging defeat against Iran, and now a tricky test against England. 

The big disappointment for Wales hasn’t just been the results — which leave them bottom of Group B with just a single point — but also that the squad’s big players haven’t turned up in Qatar. Aaron Ramsey has been mostly anonymous, and captain Gareth Bale has rarely shown his quality, although he did duly dispatch a clutch penalty when call upon against the USA.  

Meanwhile, England enjoyed a flying start to the World Cup when the Three Lions mauled Iran in a comprehensive 6-2 win. However, as so often happens with England, the national negativity has returned in full force following a lackluster goalless draw with the USA. England looked the more likely to lose for much of the game, and the attacking prowess displayed against Iran was nowhere to be seen. 

Gareth Southgate has proved over the past five years that he is tournament smart, and there is an argument to be made that the performance against the USA was intentionally pragmatic. Nevertheless, the English public will demand an improved performance against old rivals. And even if a draw will be enough to secure qualification to the next round, England would surely enjoy being the ones to confirm Wales' flight home. 

The Wales vs England live stream is a high-stakes match between two geographical neighbors and historic sporting rivals. It's a match you won't want to miss even if you don't support either team. 

Wales vs England team news

Wales’ first-choice goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey, is suspended for this one after picking up a red card for a dangerously high tackle against Iran. While the side’s star players have underperformed in this tournament so far, Rob Page opts to once again rely on the likes of Bale, Ramsey and Dan James against England. It'll almost certainly be Bale's last major international tournament, can be deliver magic one more time for his beloved Wales? 

After sticking with the same starting XI for both the Iran and USA games, Southgate has made several bold calls today. Kieran Trippier, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka are out and in their place come Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson, Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden. Southgate will be hoping these big changes pay off with an improved display that sees England top the group. 

Wales: Ward, Williams, Mepham, Rodon, Davies, Allen, Ampadu ,Bale, Ramsey, James ,Moore.

England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Henderson, Rice, Bellingham, Rashford, Kane, Foden.
