Tie breakers: If two or more teams are still level based on points, goal difference, goals scored and head-to-head results, then the fair play system will be used.
The Three Lions will qualify if they are to beat the United States on Friday night.
If they were to draw tonight, a win or a draw against Wales would send them through. They could still go through with a draw against the USA and a defeat to Wales, thanks to their superior goal advantage as the group stands.
A shock defeat on Friday though could see them crash out with a draw against Wales – if Iran beat the USA and the Americans are somehow able to miraculously pull back the large goal difference currently in England’s favour.
A defeat in both their remaining games would see Gareth Southgate’s side crash out.
