As much as we've known for a while this controversial 'winter' World Cup was happening, probably due to the lack of separation from the European football seasons it's only now, with the last Premier League and Championship fixtures for a few weeks having been played, that it actually feels that the build up is really beginning.
For this World Cup the home nations will be represented by England and Wales, and by coincidence they have been drawn in the same group, Group B. Their first games are on day two of the tournament.

The top two teams qualify for the knock out stages, so let's hope in Group B that's both England 🏴 and Wales 🏴.
