Road to Qatar: how England qualified for World Cup 2022


England Manager Gareth Southgate looks on during a training session at The Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground on June 13, 2022 in Burton-upon-Trent, England.

After reaching the semi-finals and then the final of their previous two major tournaments, England will be hoping to go one better at this year's World Cup in Qatar.

Gareth Southgate's side reached the last four in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, where they lost 2-1 to Croatia, and were beaten by Italy in a penalty shoot-out at last year's delayed Euro 2020.

Qualification for this year's global gathering in the Middle East was achieved comfortably as they finished top of Group I, six points clear of second-placed Poland and unbeaten over the course of 10 matches.

The Three Lions smashed in 39 goals along the way, conceding just three, with captain Harry Kane top scoring with six.

In Qatar, they have been drawn in Group B along with Iran, United States and Wales.
