The United States made their return to the FIFA World Cup in men’s football when they played to a 1-1 stalemate with Wales in their Group B opening match.
If the young U.S. team wants to advance past the tournament’s group phase, they must beat Iran in their last group stage match.
The U.S. side showed heaps of character in their goalless draw with England bowing out of the contest with a well-deserved point. Ranked well below the 2018 semi-finalists, the Americans gave a good account of themselves.
The Americans reached their 12th world finals in Qatar after finishing third behind Canada and Mexico in North, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF). The former third-placed finishers failed to qualify for the last tournament in Russia in 2018, the first time they missed out on the quadrennial showpiece since 1986.
