At 21 years old, Bukayo Saka has emerged as a vital cog for Premier League leaders Arsenal. Now at his second major international tournament, he will be looking to lead the Three Lions to their first World Cup title since 1966. Saka’s performance in the previous matches for his country and club has been amazing and his athletic and dribbling ability can cause a lot of trouble for the opposition teams.
Wales predicted XI (5-3-2):
Ward; Mepham, Rodon, Davies; Roberts, Allen, Ampadu, Wilson, Williams; Bale, Moore.
England predicted XI (4-3-3):
Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Foden; Saka, Kane, Rashford.
Wales vs England: Prediction
Facing their most important game in recent memory against a British rival, a galvanized Wales should not be counted out on the mentality side of things. However, their on-pitch endeavours against Iran left a lot to be desired.
Wales have no choice, but to go all out in order to win this game, with only a heavy win giving the Dragons a chance of qualification from Group B. But still, this England squad has a lot of quality and it is very much capable of defeating Wales.
Prediction: Wales 0-1 England
