Following the results of the 2022 World Cup draw drawn on Friday in Doha, the capital of Qatar, it is possible that England will play the first All-British match in the history of the World Cup final.
England were also drawn in Group B with Iran and the United States, and won European play-offs from Wales, Scotland and Ukraine. This seat decision from the European Union was postponed to next June due to the crisis of the Russia-Ukraine crisis.
The England team, coached by coach Gareth Southgate, begins their World Cup campaign against Iran on the first day of the tournament, the first meeting to unite them at the first team level in official matches.
The England team will face its American opponent, who met him twice at the World Cup in the 1950s and 2010 editions, but he never won.
England have never faced Scottish and Welsh in a World Cup final, but they have each faced each other in the European Cup.
Scottish and England drew 0-0 at Wembley Stadium in Group Stadium of the European Nations Cup (Euro 2020) in June last year, and England beat Welsh in Euro 2016, with England winning. Time 1-2, but Wales continued his career in the tournament until they reached the semi-finals.
Following the start of the World Cup campaign against Algeria, the England team will face its American opponent before playing its third match in the group against the European play-off qualifiers.
Southgate dismissed rumors that not knowing the other opponent on the team could affect the team’s preparations for the match.
Due to the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine, FIFA has not yet set a date for the clash between Ukraine and Scotland, so the date of the winner’s match with Wales has not been set.
“In this situation, we all sympathize with the people of Ukraine, no matter how or when this conflict takes place,” Southgate told the BBC.
Commenting on the Iran match on the first day, Southgate said: “We will play on the first day, so the picture of our plan from the end of the English Premier League season to the World Cup is clear.”
He added in a statement issued by the British news agency PA Media: “The first two teams (Iran and the United States) have not faced them for a long time. The third team is unknown, but we may be totally at war with the British.
England captain and striker Harry Kane said on Twitter: “It’s always exciting to see who’s playing in the group! It’s amazing to play on the first day.
Wales interim coach Robert Page said of the clash with England on 29 November: “It’s a thrilling match. Scotland looks like that, but our focus now is on qualifying.”
