By Rubén Morales Iglesias: England took the early lead in Group B with their 6-1 bombing of Iran and even though they were slowed down by the 0-0 draw with the United States, they are still leading the group with their four points.

That’s one point more than Iran, two more than the United States, and three more than Wales, who mathematically still have an extremely small possibility of qualifying.

For all intents and purposes, England has already booked a ticket for the Round of 16. The only way they would be out is if they lose by four goals or more to Wales. That would overturn their +4 goal difference.

With their three points, Iran will qualify with a win over the United States on Tuesday, but a draw might be enough to get them over the hump into the next round. A draw would give them four points and leave the United States at three, and unless Wales beat England, Iran would qualify.

The United States, with only two points, must win over Iran if they want to make it to the next round. There are no two ways around it.

Wales would qualify if they beat England by four regardless of what Iran and the United States do. They would also qualify if they defeat England by any score and Iran draw with the United States. Defeating England would put the Welsh at four points and would improve their -2-goal difference, and even though Iran would have four points as well, their goal difference would remain at -2 giving Wales the edge. In this scenario, England would also have four points, but their +4 present goal difference would put them through along with Wales. That is as long as Wales doesn’t blow them out.

The final group matches will be played on Tuesday at the same time at 1:00 pm so that no team has an edge over the other. Wales plays England at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Ar-Rayyan while Iran faces the United States at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha.
