Day 6: England are back in action against USA, Wales take on Iran

Ready to do it all over again?

Day SIX of the competition sees the second round of fixtures begin, and it’s Group A and Group B that take centre-stage.

Having shared the spoils with the USA, Wales know they’ll require maximum points against Iran to keep their qualification hopes on track.

Hosts Qatar will look to bounce back from their lacklustre defeat to Ecuador when they meet pointless Senegal Al Thumama Stadium.

The Netherlands and Ecuador, who both boast three points in Group A, then clash in what could decide who finishes top.

Then it’s time for the transatlantic rivalry between England and USA at 7pm.

England vs USA

After their emphatic 6-2 victory over Iran in Monday’s opening group game, England are back in action.

The Three Lions showed they mean business against their 20th-ranked opponents, and could make another statement with Harry Kane fit and available for selection after a fitness scare.

England will qualify for the last 16 if they beat the United States and should capitalise on the buoyant mood they’ve built in camp.

Things aren’t so buoyant for the US, who fell apart in the second half against Wales.

Gregg Berhalter’s side flew out the traps but subsided before eventually being pegged back by a late Gareth Bale penalty.

Wales vs Iran

The stakes are rising at the 2022 World Cup… didn’t take long.

Wales drew their opener with the USA thanks to a cracking second-half performance, but will need victory against Iran to bolster their qualification chances.

Rob Page’s side still have their toughest test in England left to play, and so find themselves in the uncomfortable position of having to cheer their rivals against the United States.

Iran completely lost their way when Plan A failed, so scoring early against Carlos Queiroz’s side will be a priority for Wales.

But they proved there’s goals in the side with Mehdi Taremi and will be buoyed by the fact Wales are now winless in their last six in all competitions.

  • Our pick: It’s going to be tight, and chances are this won’t be a classic. So we’re tipping a slender 1-0 Wales win at odds of 19/4. New Ladbrokes customers can claim £20 in free bets when they stake a fiver! Claim HERE*
  • Price change: Get England and Wales both to win at 11/4 after Betfair boost. CLAIM HERE

Netherlands vs Ecuador

This could be a very interesting tie indeed.

The Netherlands were a touch fortunate to escape with three points over a resilient Senegal, and the 2-0 scoreline arguably flattered them.

But the introduction of forward Memphis Depay, who was previously a fitness concern, completely changed the game for Louis van Gaal’s side.

The 28-year-old almost certainly starts on Friday, and he’ll be needed against the impressive Ecuador.

Ecuador dealt with the pressure of the competition’s opening game against the hosts, who’d never lost the opening game of a World Cup.

Enter Valencia was sharp when bagging a brace, and Brighton duo Moises Caicedo and Pervis Estupinan added a touch of class to the XI.

  • Our pick: We think Ecuador will throw a spanner in the works by claiming three points at odds of 4/1 with Betfair. New Betfair customers will receive £30 in free bets when they stake £10 on football. CLAIM HERE*
  • Big boost: Get Wales, Senegal, Netherlands and England all to win at 10/1 with Betfair. CLAIM HERE

Qatar vs Senegal

Oh boy… can’t say we’re looking forward to this one particularly.

Qatar showed almost nothing in the opening defeat to Ecuador, while Senegal simply couldn’t put the ball in the net against the Dutch.

The two sides have never met in any competition before, so previous form isn’t very helpful on this occasion.

Senegal WERE, however, the more positive and attacking side against Holland and the Africa Cup of Nations champions must be respected.

  • Our pick: We think Senegal will throw everything at this Qatar side and grab a valuable three points. The tip is Ismaila Sarr to score anytime, Senegal to win and both teams to score at 7/1 with Coral. New Coral customers who stake a fiver will receive £20 in free bets. CLAIM HERE*.
