World Cup 2022 fixtures and kick-off times announced as England tipped favourites to top group… – The Sun

ENGLAND’S World Cup schedule has been revealed – and it will take lift-off with a manic Monday!
The Three Lions head to Qatar later this year with the tournament due to take place in winter for the first time in history.
It all gets underway on November 21 and England will be in action on the opening day.
Gareth Southgate’s men were drawn in Group B along with Iran, USA and Wales – after they beat Ukraine in a dramatic play-off on Sunday afternoon.
Now you can start requesting those holidays at work and booking your table in the boozer after the kick-off times and dates were confirmed.
It is set to be a condensed schedule with FOUR matches played on the opening match-day of the showpiece event.
And England versus Iran will be the second one to take place with a 1pm kick off (GMT) at the Khalifa International Sports Stadium.
That comes after Senegal make history against Holland in the opening game – the first time since 1938 that neither the holders or host nation have taken part in the World Cup’s first match.
What a way to begin the week – and it only gets better for supporters of the Three Lions.
It is Friday night action next for our men, with the second group match against USA set for a 7pm start.
That one will be held at the Al Bayt Stadium on November 25.
Then England will be hoping for some Tuesday night delight in their final group clash.
The potential bumper Battle of Britain will be staged at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium on November 29 with a 7pm kick off UK time.
Then should England qualify from the group they will be back in action that weekend.
Depending on if they top it or go through in second place, the Three Lions will face a team from Group A on either Saturday 3 or Sunday 4 December.
If they finish second, then it will be a 3pm clash on the Saturday.
But if they win the group, then they will be in action on Sunday at 7pm.
