Ben Davies sends England warning to teammates Harry Kane and Eric Dier

Ben Davies has claimed that Wales will head into their final group game against England believing they can get all three points.

After the first round of games in Group B, which saw England demolish Iran, and Wales play out a 1-1 draw with the United States, most people would have expected the Three Lions to seal the top spot, and for the Dragons and Americans to battle it out for second place.

However, England were held to a draw by the USA in their second game while Wales fell to a shock 2-0 defeat to Iran, thus leaving the group wide open.

Going into the final game against England, Robert Page’s men need to get three points to have any chance of qualifying, and Davies believes that Wales can take confidence from the performance the United States produced against Garth Southgate’s side on Friday.

The defender told The Sun ahead of Tuesday’s clash: “We have to maybe look at what the USA did well to try and gain some sort of advantage. America played a very good game against England, and it’s not exactly like they’re a bad team.

“They caused England problems just like England caused America problems. It was quite an even game and it was probably one where no team gave too much away.”

Davies pointed out that Wales have nothing to lose going into the clash against England and insisted he and his teammates are more than capable of an upset.

He added: “They are a good team and have shown that in recent years. But we have to hope we can do something special against them.”

“We’ve performed well when we’ve had our backs against the wall in the past. We really have got nothing to lose now, we have to go out there and give the best side of ourselves.”

When asked about going up against his Spurs teammate Harry Kane, the 29-year-old responded: “Harry’s a world-class player and one of the best in the world so he’s going to make any team better. Whoever we’re up against, we’re facing a team of world-class players.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Group B is fascinatingly poised ahead of the final round of matches, with all four teams having a realistic shot of qualifying for the knockout stages. While England have a lot more quality than Wales, the pressure that the Three Lions are under could work in the favour of Robert Page’s men, particularly if the Dragons score first.
