NEW TO PADDY POWER?
A year and a bit on from the painful penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final, the Three Lions head into the 2022 World Cup near the top of Paddy Power’s betting for the World Cup.
Gareth Southgate’s boys have been pitched into Group B, but who are England set to face and when are their fixtures?
England v Iran
Monday, November 21 (13:00)
England kick off their World Cup campaign against Iran in the opening game on the second day of the tournament. They are 22nd in the FIFA world rankings but have never progressed beyond the group stage. A nice opener for the Three Lions?
England v USA
Friday, November 25 (19:00)
A repeat of the 2010 World Cup group-stage clash made famous by Rob Green’s blunder between the sticks. The Stars and Stripes sit 14th in the FIFA world rankings and boast a number of players familiar to English football fans including Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Turner, Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson and Chelsea forward Christian Pulisic.
Wales v England
Tuesday, November 29 (19:00)
The Battle of Britain! A match that could prove pivotal for both teams in their respective bids to reach the last 16. Gareth Bale and co. progressed through UEFA’s play-off round to reach Qatar and the last meeting between the two teams in a major tournament – at the 2016 Euros – was a thriller as England won thanks to a last-minute Daniel Sturridge strike.
