This Wales vs England puts more than local pride at stake as Group B comes to a thrilling climax at the 2022 World Cup. The Three Lions are in pole position to qualify and know a draw is enough, while a win means they reach the last 16 as group winners and potentially avoid the Netherlands. Nothing but victory is good enough for Wales, but they also need the other result in the group to go their way. Make sure you know how to watch a Wales vs England live stream from anywhere today and all games from the FIFA World Cup 2022 online for free.

The teams are in and Wales make three changes as Danny Ward, Dan James and Joe Allen come in for the suspend Wayne Hennessey, Connor Roberts and Harry Wilson. That means a 4-2-3-1 system for Robert Page, with Gareth Bale starting on the wing and Aaron Ramsey as a No.10 behind Kieffer Moore. England make four changes as Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson, Marcus Rasford and Phil Foden come in for Kieran Trippier, Mason Mount, Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling. Harry Kane starts as captain up front and Jude Bellingham continues in midfield.

After a dispiriting 2-0 defeat to Iran last time out, Wales know they must go all-out for the win against their local rivals, who they haven't beaten since 1984. Robert Page's side must also hope Iran and the USA draw. Should the US win, Wales will need to beat England by four goals to progress. If Iran win in the other game, they're out regardless of their own result. Page has hinted he may make changes after Aaron Ramsey, in particular, struggled against Iran but the Welsh showed in the Euro 2016 groups – in which they led until two England goals in the last five minutes – that they have the fire and counterattacking game to cause their neighbours problems.

Though a point is enough for England to reach the last 16, Gareth Southgate will want to erase memories of the Three Lions' bore draw against the USA last Friday. England were careless in possession and slow in transition and were it not for the much-maligned Harry Maguire's granite forehead, the US could even have taken the spoils.

Knowing Wales must play on the front foot could help England attack spaces in behind. A morale-boosting win could be the much-needed wake up for a side that seemingly thinks it can sleep walk into the knockouts. Jack Grealish shone in a late cameo against the US and could be pushing for a start, while Jordan Henderson's extra energy and physicality may also see him get the nod.

If England can isolate the Welsh back three with their own trio of forwards in Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka, then the Three Lions could get the win, but Gareth Bale will seldom have been more inspired to deliver another moment of brilliance in a Welsh shirt.

This Group B match kicks off today at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST at the 45,032-seater Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, Al Rayyan, at Qatar 2022. Make sure you know how to watch a Wales vs England live stream and see all of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
