WALES boss Rob Page isn't getting carried away with thoughts of taking on England at the World Cup, knowing they have a job to do in Cardiff first.

The Gareth Bale-inspired win over Austria has set a June play-off final against either Scotland or Ukraine with the winners joining Gareth Southgate's side, the USA and Iran in Group B.

Wales, bidding to reach their first World Cup since 1958, faced England in Euro 2016 when edged out by Daniel Sturridge's last-gasp winner, although they did go further in the tournament when reaching the semi-finals.

Reflecting on the prospect of facing England, Wales manager Page said: "Of course it whets the appetite.

"We have been waiting years and years for this opportunity so trust me when I say there will be no stone unturned.

"We will prepare right, have a group of lads ready, and throw everything at this opportunity that we have been given.

"Yes, it is a mouth-watering tie, potentially, Scotland will be thinking the same, but our full focus is on getting there."

Former Scotland international James McFadden believes the prospect of facing England at the biggest stage will be a major motivation ahead of the play-offs.

"We have got play-offs that we have to worry about and hopefully we can get through the first one, which sets up an unbelievable encounter against Wales," the former Motherwell and Everton forward told BBC Sport.

"And then for either side, it's a great incentive. It's a big enough incentive in itself to get to the World Cup, but knowing that you're going into a group again with England is great and I'm sure it will motivate the players going into those play-off games."

Hosts Qatar will kick off the tournament against Ecuador on November 21, whilst elsewhere Group E pitted two former world champions Spain and Germany against each other.

Belgium take on fellow 2018 World Cup semi-finalists Croatia in Group F, while reigning champions France take on Denmark, Tunisia and the winner of intercontinental play-off one, which will be one of Australia, the United Arab Emirates and Peru.

Wales would face one of hosts Qatar, Holland, Ecuador or Senegal in the last 16 if they make it to the World Cup and qualify from the group.
