The Qatar 2022 World Cup kicked off on November 20, with the opening game seeing the hosts lose 2-0 to Ecuador. And for Qatar fans it then got even worse – a 3-1 defeat to Senegal meant they crashed out of their own tournament after just two games.

England played in the second game of the competition, Gareth Southgate's side scoring six against Iran.

However, the Three Lions' second match proved a major disappointment after they could only register a goalless draw against USA.

Next, Southgate's men play Wales knowing that they will qualify even if they lose provided Wales don't beat them by four goals.

Here is the confirmed fixture list in full, right the way up to the final on December 18.
