While Iran clash with the United States of America in a winner-takes-all clash, England are hot favourites to top the section and it would be a big surprise if they were unable to overcome a Wales team who look to be among the worst sides in the tournament. Gareth Bale looks a pale imitation of his former self and Aaron Ramsey has been virtually anonymous.

It could be a one-sided affair according to the World Cup betting odds, with England likely to be a popular World Cup accumulator pick despite concerns over the fitness of Harry Kane. It will be interesting to see whether Phil Foden is given the opportunity to shine, with Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka likely to return to the form that they showed against Iran.

Rather than back England to win the game, you might want to consider England + BTTS No at odds-against. After all, they nullified the US and only conceded a couple of late consolation goals against Iran, with Wales having scored a late penalty in their opener and failing to find the net against the Iranians.

From a correct score point-of-view, you could consider a 2-0 or 3-0 win in favour of England, with the Three Lions likely to play Ecuador or Netherlands at the last sixteen stage. If Harry Kane is given the night off, then perhaps Callum Wilson can step up to the plate although Kieran Trippier is a bigger-priced option for the First Goalscorer market due to his prowess from free-kicks.
