Tottenham’s Ben Davies says Wales know the blueprint for stopping England as they eye World Cup shock

BEN DAVIES says Wales can copy USA’s blueprint to stun England in the Battle of Britain.

The Dragons were left floored by their 2-0 defeat to Iran on Friday.

But they watched the Three Lions in their stalemate with the Americans later that evening.

Davies said Wales, who need to beat their arch- rivals to have any chance of a Last-16 spot, spotted weaknesses which they believe they can exploit.

The Tottenham defender said: “We have to maybe look at what the USA did well to try and gain some sort of advantage.

“America played a very good game against England, and it’s not exactly like they’re a bad team.

“They caused England problems just like England caused America problems.

“It was quite an even game and it was probably one where no team gave too much away.”

Wales must beat England by four goals to guarantee their place in the knockout stages.

But any win will be enough for Rob Page’s men if the other Group B fixture between Iran and USA ends in a draw.

And Davies, 29, is convinced the Dragons can win.

He said: “They are a good team and have shown that in recent years.  But we have to hope we can do something special against them.”

“We’ve performed well when we’ve had our backs against the wall in the past.

“We really have got nothing to lose now, we have to go out there and give the best side of ourselves.”

England captain Harry Kane has a foot injury and the absence of his Spurs club-mate would be a  boost to Wales.

Davies said: “Harry’s a world-class player and one of the best in the world so he’s going to make any team better. 

“Whoever we’re up against, we’re facing a team of world-class players.”
