England For Knockouts if They Avoid a 4-Goal Defeat by Wales

Published

With the final round of matches in Group B to come, it is still mathematically possible for all teams to qualify for the last 16.

England will reach the knockout stage if they avoid a four-goal defeat by Wales on Tuesday.

England sit top of the group with four points, followed by Iran on three, USA on two, and Wales on one.

Last night, England faced a stronger USA that exhausted the three lions leading to a 0-0 draw. England was booed by fans for failing to secure even a single goal.

This winter World Cup has proven a bumpy take-off for other countries with much better tournament track-records and so this was England’s turn.

The booing at full-time was a reminder that the tension of a support that is beleaguered and angry in equal measure. Even so at times it was hard to believe this was the same side that demolished Iran on the second day of the tournament.

This time England viewed life through the other end of the telescope, a team unable to pick up the tempo or risk the kind of passes that might overwhelm an admirably stubborn USA team.
