The third round of the group stage of the Qatar Cup will start this Tuesday (28) with decisive games. One of the most interesting is the one that puts England and Wales face to face, starting at 4 pm (Brasília time) this Tuesday (29), at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, in Al Rayyan.

Occupying the leadership of Group B with four points, after a goalless draw with the United States in the last round, the English are guaranteed in the round of 16 even with a draw. For Wales, winning is a necessity, and with an elastic score that improves their goal tally.
In the same bracket, and at the same time, but at Al Thumama Stadium, Iran and the United States measure forces. If there is a winner in this match, whoever wins the three points will be in the round of 16. In case of a draw, Iran will only not advance if Wales beat England. That is, all four teams reach the last round with chances of qualifying.

Tuesday will also be the day to define the future of Group A, with departures at 12h. Who seems to have the simplest mission is the Netherlands, who face disqualified Qatar at Al Bayt Stadium. The Dutch are at the top of the group with four points. Thus, for the Europeans a draw is enough to reach the round of 16.
In the other match, Ecuador and Senegal face off for a spot at the Khalifa International Stadium, in Doha. The Ecuadorians appear in second place in the group with four points, while the Senegalese are third with three.
