QATAR vs NETHERLANDS
Qatar became the first-ever host nation to be eliminated after just two games.The Middle East team lost 2-0 to Ecuador in their opener before also losing 3-1 to Senegal.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands look set to make it through and could well do so as group winners.Louis van Gaal’s team are level on everything with Ecuador who face Senegal in their final game.The Dutch side just need to better their scoreline to claim top spot in Group A.
Netherlands to win.
WALES vs ENGLAND
England go into their final group game knowing a win will put them in a better position in the knockout rounds after a disappointing draw to USA. They face rivals Wales who suffered defeat at the hands of Iran and will be looking at a famous win at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.

Considering the opposition and their recent displays, the Three Lions have to be enormous favorites for the win.England won ten and drew one of the previous eleven meetings against the Dragons
