Where to watch the World Cup matches in England and Wales

A guide showing where England and Wales fans can watch the 2022IFA World Cup this winter.

The 2022IFA World Cup is fast approaching, with about six weeks to go until its kick-off.

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this World Cup due to human rights issues in the host country, and we can expect to see more discussions on these issues as the competition approaches.

But the tournament will kick off on November 21, with clubs halting work to make way for football’s biggest event.

England are heading into the competition in disrepair, having failed to win any of their Nations League matches, and pressure is mounting on Gareth Southgate heading to Qatar.

Robert Page’s men qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 64 years after beating Ukraine in a World Cup qualifier.

England defeated Wales the last time the two opponents met in a major competition – at Euro 2016 – but it was the latter who had the last laugh in that tournament, winning the set and reaching the semi-finals.

Better times followed England, including a fourth-place finish at the last World Cup, and a second-place finish at Euro 2020.

But there are questions heading to Qatar against the background of the poor level.

However, with kick-off approaching, we’ve rounded up the channels you need to follow England and Wales at this winter’s World Cup.

What did the page say?

Speaking about his new contract and the World Cup, the Wales boss said: “There is no greater honor than coaching your national team and I can’t wait for the challenge the next four years will bring, starting with our first World Cup in 64 years.

“This is an exciting time for Welsh football and I hope we can make the country proud in November and continue our success by qualifying for more major tournaments in the future.”

What did Southgate say?

Speaking about the World Cup, England manager Southgate said: “I know in the end I will be judged based on what happens in the World Cup.

“Contracts are not relevant in football because managers can have contracts for three, four or five years and you accept that if the results aren’t good enough, it’s time to go your separate ways.

“Why would I be different? I am not arrogant enough to think that my contract would protect me in any way.”
