Surprised no one has started this thread - is there no interest?

There are 32 teams. The United States is in Group B along with England, Iran, and Wales. England will face Iran today, while the US will open against Wales. Top 2 teams in each group advance after playing all group members. Today's game is a big one, because the US will likely beat Iran, but will have a very tough time beating England, one of the Cup favorites. Wales is in the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Look forward to your posts. I am totally unfamiliar with this current USMNT. I kind of tuned out when the men's team was unable to qualify in 2018 so I will be learning this team as they go.

Sad that some folks need to learn geography by watching the World Cup. SMDH

LOL - gotcha.

And no, I didn't notice the spelling. Honestly, I have gotten a bit numb to the ignorance displayed by our fellow countrymen and satire is now almost indistinguishable from that ignorance.

The USA is crushing it. I'm a little stunned if I'm honest.

Wales has the players to be trouble and the USA has not looked great leading up to this tournament but today we are dominating everything.

I don't think I've ever seen this many yellow cards in a match - ever. Need to dial it down on both sides of the ball.

That was a really stupid penalty. The one thing you absolutely can't do.

Now we have to go find the winner we should have found already by this point.

1-0 is not a lead - it is a draw just waiting to happen.

They are playing with fire right now and Bale might just burn them.

Geez. This match should have been put to bed by 60 minute mark and here we are now in a dogfight just to hang on to a draw.

Not a lot of urgency from the US in the waning minutes.

Acosta just saved a goal and likely preserved the draw right there.
