ENGLAND’S World Cup schedule has been revealed – and it’s set to take off with an insane Monday!
The Three Lions travel to Qatar later this year, with the tournament set to take place in winter for the first time in history.
It all starts on November 21st and England will be in action on opening day.
Gareth Southgate’s men have been drawn into Group B alongside Iran, USA and the Uefa play-off winners – who will be either Wales or Ukraine.
Now you can apply for these holidays at work and reserve your table at the boozer after kick-off times and dates have been confirmed.
It’s a condensed schedule of FOUR matches played on the opening day of the flagship event.
And England v Iran will be the second to be played at 13:00 (GMT) at the Khalifa International Sports Stadium.
That comes after Senegal made history in their opening game against Holland – the first time since 1938 that neither the defending champions nor the hosts have played in the first game of the World Cup.
What a start to the week – and it only gets better for Three Lions supporters.
Our men continue on Friday evening. The second group game against the USA starts at 19:00.

This will take place on November 25th at Al Bayt Stadium.
Then England hopes for a joy on Tuesday night in their last group fight.
The potential Battle of Britain will be played at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium on November 29 with kick-off at 19:00 UK time.
Should England then qualify from the group, they will be back in action this weekend.
The Three Lions will face a team from Group A on either Saturday 3rd or Sunday 4th December depending on whether they finish or progress in second place.
If they finish second there will be a duel on Saturday at 3pm.
But if they win the group, they will be in action at 7pm on Sunday.
