Wales' Gareth Bale (centre) stands hands on hips as England's Chris Smalling (left) and Wayne Rooney look on during the UEFA Euro 2016, Group B match at the Stade Felix Bollaert-Delelis, Lens.

There are plenty of World Cup qualifiers taking place this week, with the Home Nations all in action

Wales were brilliant at Euro 2016 and they head to Austria on Thursday night hoping to continue the good work against a side who were massively underwhelming at the same tournament.

Meanwhile, Republic of Ireland are in the same group and they entertain a Georgia side in Dublin, with the boys in green strong favourites to claim a win.

Italy clash with Spain in Turin for what is the highlight match of the international fortnight, with France and Netherlands in action on Friday when they entertain Bulgaria and Belarus respectively.

On Saturday, an England side now caretaker managed by Gareth Southgate go up against Malta at Wembley and it should be walk in the park for the Three Lions, with Scotland hosting Lithuania and hoping to build on their 5-1 win against the Maltese.

Northern Ireland have a winnable clash against San Marino on the same evening, with Germany hosting Czech Republic in the same group.
