Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the third and final matchday in Group B of the FIFA World Cup. Group B consists of England, Wales, Iran and the United States of America, and all four teams can go through to the round of 16, but only two teams will eventually make it. Both matches in Qatar kick off at the same time (10 pm local time, 12.30 am IST). Here's the matchday three schedule of Group B: 

Wales vs England at Al Rayyan Stadium 

Iran vs USA at Al Thumama Stadium

Preview: England face Wales in a blockbuster FIFA World Cup Group B clash in Qatar’s Al Rayyan on Tuesday, knowing a win will all but secure themselves a place in the round of 16 phase.

England began the tournament in astounding fashion, thumping Iran 6-2, after which they played out a goalless draw against USA.

For Wales, however, things have not quite gone as per their plan. They endured a 1-1 draw against USA, in which Gareth Bale scored a penalty, and followed it up with a shock 0-2 defeat to Iran.

England (Four points) and Iran (three) occupy the top two spots in Group B after two games but all that could change during the course of 90 minutes. Iran, meanwhile, takes third placed USA (two points) in a winner-takes-all contest. Wales are currently fourth in the standings, with just one point, and their goal difference of -2 does not help their case either.
