London (Times Of Ocean)- Scotland or Wales may be England’s opponents at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, after the draw for the tournament’s final was made on Friday.
After the remaining European play-off path is completed, one of Wales, Scotland, or Ukraine will go into Group B.
England’s group also includes Iran and the United States.
The World Cup runs from 21 November to 18 December in Qatar, with Senegal playing the Netherlands in the opening match.
On the same day, England will play Iran in their first match. Both sides have never faced each other in a senior men’s competitive international.
The match will be played eight days after the England Premier League resumes after a six-week break.
In Group D, the reigning champions France are seated while Brazil, the new number one in the FIFA world rankings, are in Group G.
To reach the World Cup for the first time since 1958, Wales must defeat the winners of Scotland and Ukraine in the play-off final in June.
That semi-final – which had been scheduled to take place on 24 March at Hampden – has been postponed due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
