Match preview and statistics
Wales suffered a 0-2 defeat to Iran in their last game against Iran. Wayne Hennessey was sent off in the 86th minute after he bundled into Taremi outside the box. Roozbeh Cheshmi opened the scoreline in the 98th minute with a nice finish from outside the box into the bottom corner. Ramin Rezaeian doubled their lead in the 101st minute with a one-time finish into the bottom corner.
Wales was in the game until they received a red card in the latter stages of the game. They conceded two goals late in the game as their qualification chances are now slim. Wales had 10 shots with 0.89 expected goals. They need a top performance to get a win against England. Wales is currently bottom of the group with one point. They have scored three goals while conceding a goal with a difference of -2.
Wales needs to be compact against England if they are to get all three points against them. They can copy or use similar tactics which the USA used against England by dominating the midfield thereby giving them an advantage over England. It will be difficult for Wales to get three points against England but the World Cup has shown anything is possible

England played a 0-0 draw against the USA as they failed to secure qualification in that game. The Three Lions were poor in that game as the USA dominated the game and created more chances. England had eight shots with 0.77 expected goals. The Three Lions completed 472 passes.
England started the World Cup with a big win against Iran with the fans deeming them one of the favourites to win the title, but their performance against the USA has received so much criticism. The Three Lions were terrible in their game against the USA as they were unable to move the ball and the opponent won the midfield battle.
England lacked creativity during the game with one of their most creative players on the bench. Gareth Southgate needs to start Foden against Wales as his creativity will be great against Wales's deep block. The defence has been great so far as they were the reason they didn't concede against the USA.

Predictions and betting tips
England will be looking to qualify for the knockout stages in a very crucial game against Wales. The Three Lions are the strongest team in this tie and they need just a point to qualify for the knockout stages. Wales has been poor during the World Cup as they have played one draw while suffering one defeat against Iran. I predict England to win 3-0.
Three of the last four England matches have ended in over 2.5 goals. The Three Lions have scored the most goals in their group and the joint second-most goals in the competition so far. Two of their last five games have ended in over 2.5 goals. I predict over 2.5 goals.
