England secured their place in the Round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup by beating Wales 3-0 in the last round of the group stage. With the first part of the championship over, it’s time for coach Gareth Southgates’ team to start thinking about the round of 16.
The Three Lions team beat Iran in the opener, played the United States without much inspiration in the second round and made a good 3-0 victory after a very weak first half to defeat the eliminated Welsh.
The English team secured first place with seven points – the USA took second place after an emotional duel against Iran.
