On Tuesday, Wales will face the United Kingdom in the 2022 World Cup. The confirmed match authorities for the Group B fixtures are listed below.

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions will be hoping to bounce back from a disappointing performance against the United States on Friday.

Britain gave little in the approach to goal-scoring danger, and were fortunate not to concede through Christian Pulisic’s effort, which crashed off the crossbar.

Even if they lose to Ridges, they are virtually guaranteed to qualify from Gathering B. If that happens, Britain will miss out on a huge opportunity if the US defeats Iran and the Ribs beat them by four goals or more.

Rob Page’s side recognizes that the main following their 2-0 loss to Iran, success will give them a chance to meet all requirements for the knockout stages.

In any case, with the exception of the aforementioned situation, success would require the other outcome to go their way as well, with an Iran victory over the US almost certainly taking them out.

Here are the authorities who will be in charge of the crucial Group B clash.

England vs. Wales: Who is the referee, and who are the other match officials?
Slavko Vincic, a Slovenian official, will oversee the ribs’ match against Britain.

He has been a FIFA-registered referee since around 2010, and he frequently directs high-profile European matches.

Vincic was named last among Frankfurt and Rangers to lead the 2022 Europa League final between Frankfurt and Rangers, as well as Bayern Munich and Villarreal met in the quarter-finals of the Champions League second leg tie last season.

He is Slovenia’s sole refereeing representative at this year’s World Cup, and he officiated Argentina’s shocking 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia in Group C.

He has taken charge of 12 recorded matches this season, including four Champions League ties, according to WhoScored. He issued 47 yellow cards and two red cards.

The following are the other affirmed match authorities (according to Law 5 – The Referee):

Tomaz Klancnik and Andraz Kovacic are colleagues (both Slovenia)
Yoshimi Yamashita is the fourth authority (Japan)
Official Video Partner: Marco Fritz (Germany)
Paolo Valeri (Italy), Pawel Sokolnicki (Poland), Bastian Dankert (Germany), Vasile Marinescu (Romania) (Romania)
