The group's cellar dwellers, Wales, need a win over England and a draw between Iran and the United States to go to the quarterfinals, as a victory for either Team Melli or the Stars and Stripes would eliminate them unless they thrashed Gareth Southgate's squad by four goals. Wales lost to Iran in extra time after Wayne Hennessey was sent off for a dangerously high tackle on Mehdi Taremi. The loss left fans heartbroken, and only a miracle would see Rob Page's side advance to the next round. Page called his team's play before the red card "not acceptable," and with 11 players on the field, Wales still couldn't muster much offensive threat against Iran. This loss extended Wales' winless skid to seven games across all competitions. If Wales loses Tuesday, it will be the first time in their history that they have gone winless in a major event. However, they may find some solace in England's similarly poor performance against the United States.

While many supporters of the Three Lions were undoubtedly ecstatic with Wales's defeat on Friday lunchtime, a few hours later, after an uninteresting draw with the United States, some English fans appeared to boo their players off the field. The greatest opportunity of the game was a shot by Christian Pulisic that smacked off the crossbar for the United States, as England failed to regain the attacking verve that allowed them to score six goals against Iran on an opening day therefore failed to clinch a spot in the playoffs. While Southgate questioned whether or not his team was booed off the field, the Three Lions manager knows that his team must improve if they hope to advance out of Group B as winners on Tuesday. With England's dismal record of only one win in their last eight across all competitions, a draw would likewise be enough for the 1966 winners to advance, leading to a typical sense of pessimism for the rest of the tournament.
Wales vs England Prediction
A re-energized Wales team, playing in their biggest game in recent memory against a British foe, is not to be underestimated in terms of mental fortitude, even if their efforts against Iran were disappointing. We do not anticipate Southgate's squad to find their shooting boots and confirm a last-16 berth, but we do expect them to inflict World Cup sorrow on their neighbors Wales by beating them even though England was not exactly blazing on all cylinders against the USA either.
Prediction: Wales woes performance will definitely continue in this match. Wales do not seem to be in their good performance as they have now failed to get a win in their last five matches. The Three Lions on the other side is expected to take advantage of the poor Wales side, and get a win.
