Live Scorecard: USA vs. Wales, Group B, FIFA World Cup 2022:

Ridges commander Gareth Parcel changed over a punishment in the 82nd moment as the Welsh Mythical serpents left with a point against a light USA side. Timothy Weah’s lone goal earlier in the game separated the Welsh team after the first half. As Gareth Bale’s team struggled to establish a foothold in the match, a youthful and buoyant USA team outclassed and ran Wales out of the game. Weah was sent on his way by a skillful pass from Christian Pulisic, and he slid the ball past an approaching goalkeeper to give his team something to cheer about.
In the most recent match, rising star Cody Gakpo spared Senegal’s blushes by scoring the Netherlands’ lone goal in the 85th minute to help them defeat a very competitive Senegal. De Jong had unchallenged control of the ball at the edge of the final third as Senegal pushed deeper and deeper. He then saw Gakpo’s run before anyone else on the field and played in a brilliantly weighted, curling, and teasing cross that led to the headed goal. When Davy Klaassen scored just before the final whistle, Senegal had already won the game.
In their first World Cup group match against Iran, England started strong and led 3-0 at halftime. England took the lead early on thanks to goals from Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, and Raheem Sterling, while Iran suffered a setback when their primary goalkeeper was stretchered off after colliding with an England forward.Saka completed his brace in the second half, and Manchester United players Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish put the final two screws in Iran’s coffin when they came off the bench.
