England will face off against Wales at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium this Tuesday as they look to return to winning ways in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Three Lions were held to a scoreless by the United States of America recently, so they will be eager to secure maximum points from this clash versus Wales.
Gareth Southgate will stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name an unchanged first XI for this game. Hence, Mason Mount could once again get a chance to shine as England’s primary attacking midfielder in midweek.
4-2-3-1 England Predicted Lineup To Face Wales
Jordan Pickford will function in between the sticks for the Three Lions after securing a clean sheet in his last World Cup outing. Harry Maguire will once again function alongside John Stones at the centre of Southgate’s defence as they look to keep the opposition at bay during the game.
Kieran Trippier will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Luke Shaw hopes to catch the eye as the left-back. Both of them will be eager to impress going forward after a lacklustre showing from them offensively in the last game.
Kyle Walker, Eric Dier and Conor Coady will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham will anchor the midfield for the England national side as they focus on dominating the 50-50 battles at the centre of the park and create enough decent chances for the Three Lions to win this game.
The talented trio of Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Bukayo Saka will operate just ahead of them as part of England’s attack. Both Sterling and Saka would try to put their pace to good use out on the flanks while Mount acts as the chief playmaker for Southgate’s side from the number ten position.
Jordan Henderson, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Conor Gallagher will have to be content with a spot on the bench but might come on to make an impact in the second half if required.
Harry Kane will lead the line for the Three Lions on his own up top. The English striker has failed to score in this World Cup, so he would be desperate to find the back of the net versus Wales in midweek.
Callum Wilson and Marcus Rashford will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the latter stages if England are in need of a goal by then.
