England eased through their 2022 World Cup group – and now fans are well and truly dreaming of glory in Qatar.
The Three Lions took top spot in Group B, as they claimed seven points from their three games.
After a brilliant display in their opening match to thrash Iran 6-2, England were less impressive in a 0-0 draw with USA, setting up an all-British showdown against Wales on Tuesday to seal qualification.
They duly secured their progression to the knockouts in style by beating Wales 3-0 – making it a record nine goals in the group stage of a tournament for England.
Gareth Southgate’s men will face Senegal in the last 16 on Sunday 4 December, kick-off 7pm (UK time).
If the Three Lions progress, a quarter-final against either the Group D winner – France – or Group C runner-up – Poland – would come next on Saturday, December 10.

If England were to win that and progress beyond the quarter-finals, they would next play on Wednesday, December 14.
Then it could be one of Croatia, Japan, Portugal, Germany or Switzerland in the semi-finals.
And then, finally, if England were to win again, a World Cup final against Brazil, the Netherlands or Spain may well await on Sunday, December 18.
All in all, it’s a pretty straightforward route to football coming home… we hope!
Here are details of the fixtures (and potential fixtures) in full…
- England 6-2 Iran
- England 0-0 USA
- Wales 0-3 England
