Wales and England will face off in a World Cup 2022 Group B matchup on Tuesday night at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.
Iran defeated Wales 2-0 on Friday. Wales now sits in last place in their group with just one point; in order to move on to the knockout stages, they must overcome England and hope that Iran's match against the United States ends in a draw.
The Three Lions will proceed to the round of 16 if they earn all three points. The finest chance of the match, an effort by Christian Pulisic that struck the crossbar, came as England lost the attacking flair that had allowed them to demolish Iran for six goals on the opening day and wasted the opportunity to clinch a top-two finish with one game left.
Expect Southgate's team to lace up their shooting shoes and secure a spot in the round of 16. A five-man Wales backline will be difficult for England to breach, as they were not exactly operating at full strength against the USA.
Pick: England -1
