Wales will compete in their first World Cup finals in 64 years when they face the United States in Al Rayyan on Monday night in Group B. After the England vs Iran match, the USA vs Wales match will be an interesting one as Wales are making their comeback into the world cup after a long gap.
USA – The USMNT has returned to the World Cup finals after failing to qualify for the 2018 edition due to a defeat in Trinidad and Tobago in their final qualifier. This time, it was still a close race in a very difficult qualifying section, with the top four nations separated by only three points, but the United States managed to claim one of the three automatic spots, just ahead of Costa Rica. The USA squad has a lot of star players who can take care of the team in this world cup.
Wales – After a long exile from this prestigious World Cup competition Wales are back in action this year. Wales qualified for the World Cup after an emotional 1-0 World Cup qualifying playoff win at home against Ukraine. Manager Robert Paige will once again look to LAFC’s Gareth Bale, a legend in his final World Cup. Wales can have a slightly weaker side, but they will make sure that the USA side will not breach their defence.

Dream 11 Top Picks and Player Stats
Christian Pulisic: Christian Pulisic, the USA’s star attacker, will be their main hope. So far, the Chelsea attacker has had little impact in his club campaign. He has, however, been a force to be reckoned with for the national team. Fans will be hoping that he maintains the same level of performance in Qatar 2022.
Gareth Bale: Playing his final World Cup, Gareth Bale remains Wales’ most important player and the best player for big games. Wales will once again look to Bale as the key to their success.
