Know what you don't know

England and Wales Before Match 36 of the FIFA World Cup 2022, you should be aware of the head-to-head statistics and numbers.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is back in action with another set of matches this week as Wales take on British rivals England in an important Group B clash at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Tuesday. The two teams have experienced contrasting fortunes in the competition so far and will need to step up in this fixture.

Wales have endured a difficult World Cup campaign and slumped to a stunning 2-0 defeat at the hands of an inspired Iran side in their previous game. The likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey have flattered to deceive so far and will need to produce a performance for the ages to give their team a shot at qualification.

England are at the top of their group at the moment but will want to bounce back from a disappointing result in the USA. The Three Lions have a well-rounded squad at their disposal and will be intent on making their mark in this fixture.




Time to unite. Time to write a new chapter.
