The United States and Wales opened the World Cup in Qatar with a close tie

Within the framework of the first date of the Group B of the World Cup in Qatar 2022, The United States and Wales staged a close 1-1 draw at the Al Rayyan Stadium that left both teams sharing second place in an area led by England.

The United States dominated the first half, largely thanks to the very good level shown by Christian Pulisic, who helped his team to generate the first scoring chances.

After a couple of good chances, the opening of the scoring was going to come in minute 35, thanks to an excellent assist from Pulisic for Timothy Weah (son of the historic George Weah), who defined three fingers to do justice to the score.

The European team entered with a different disposition in the second half and the United States allowed it to grow with the passing of the minutes.

At 63′ Ben Davies equalized with a header, but the goalkeeper Matt Turner reacted in an incredible way to send the ball to the corner kick.

Equality for the Welsh would definitely reach 80′, after Walker Zimmerman brought down Gareth Bale in the area, a foul that the referee did not hesitate to collect.

The Los Angeles FC player, with a crossed left foot, beat the goalkeeper and sealed the match with the final 1-1.

With this result, both teams remain in second and third place with a unit, escorting England that has three points and four goals in favor after the 6-2 defeat of Iran.
