Team England Background
England is ranked fifth in the world according to the most recent FIFA rankings, and they are the overwhelming favorite to win their group. They will play games against Wales, the United States and Iran during group play, and it’s thought that Wales will be the toughest opponent that England will face out of that trio.
However, all three teams are tightly bunched in the world rankings with the United States coming in at 16, Wales at 19 and Iran at 20. If the English side does win the group, it would play the runner-up of Group A, which would probably be Senegal or Ecuador.
The English team qualified for the World Cup after finishing first in its group during the UEFA regional tournament. The team finished with eight wins in 10 games and had a +36 goal differential during qualifying. England will be seeking its second World Cup title and first since 1966.
However, the team is currently dealing with a myriad of injuries to key players such as Bukayo Saka and Ben Chilwell. Saka was hurt during a game on Oct. 30 while Chilwell was injured during a game on Nov. 2, and it’s unclear whether either will be ready for England’s first game on Nov. 21.
