Wales take on the USA in their first match at a World Cup in 64 years.

Qatar 2022 is set to be Gareth Bale’s last outing for the Dragons and the former Real Madrid superstar will be eager to get the show on the road with a bang in this Group B match.


Wales booked their place at the first ever winter World Cup with a dramatic play-off victory over Ukraine in June but are winless in their previous five fixtures.

The USA’s form is also questionable as they have collected just two wins from their last seven, but Premier League watchers will recognise plenty of players in Gregg Berhalter’s team with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Brenden Aaronson and Tim Ream representing the Stars and Stripes.

USA v Wales prediction

Phil Thompson: I’m expecting England to top this group and I’m expecting Wales to come second. This is one of those games that Wales will look at and they’ll think, ‘USA have got a decent side’. But looking at Wales, they’ll have great backing, they will be up for it.

I do expect Both Teams To Score in this, I really do. I don’t think either of them are great defensively but I think Wales will just about win this 2-1.
