Gareth Southgate’s side secured their spot in the knockout stages with a victory over Wales, here are all the last 16 details we know so far. England have secured their place in the round of 16 of the World Cup after a 3-0 win over Wales on November 29.
The Three Lions got off to an unbelievable start to the tournament as they beat Iran 6-2, before drawing an unconvincing draw with the USMNT. However, victory over Wales ensured they finished at the top of Group B.
Below’s everything you need to know about the Three Lions’ first knockout and their potential opponents.
Who will England take on in the round of 16?
The Three Lions needed just one point against Wales in their final group stage game to secure top spot in Group B, and they ended up getting the job done against Rob Page’s side. A Marcus Rashford double and a Phil Foden goal secured victory and first place, while the United States were two points behind them. After winning the top of the group, the Three Lions will face the runner-up of Group A, Senegal. If England finish second, they will pair up with the top team of Group A, the Netherlands.
What will be the date and venue for England’s round of 16 match?
After winning Group B, the final match of the round of 16 will take place on December 4. The match will be played at Al Bayt Stadium, the same venue where their disappointing 0-0 draw with USMNT on November 25 took place.
Where can I watch England’s round of 16 match in the UK?
It has yet to be decided who will broadcast the final match of the round of 16 for England, although the match will be shown on ITV or the BBC. Both channels also offer streaming access, via BBC iPlayer and ITVX.
