USA 1-1 Wales: World Cup 2022 – as it happened | World Cup 2022

Peep peep! A game of two distinct 45-minutes segments, and an honourable draw. The USA were too dynamic for Wales in the first half and scored a lovely goal through Timothy Weah. Wales’ second-half performance was much better, and they were rewarded when Gareth Bale – who had barely had a kick – won and converted a penalty in 82nd minute. I say ‘converted’: he walloped it in.

Yep, it’s time for Wales’ first World Cup game since 19 June 1958, when a future Viagra salesman named Edson scored the only goal in their quarter-final against Brazil. Wales have had a number of near misses since, none more painful or poignant than 17 November 1993, but it feels almost cheesily appropriate that this golden age of Welsh football should end with them finally reaching a World Cup. As someone who is neither Welsh nor patriotic, I won’t pretend to understand how this feels, or what it says about national identity. But I’d have to be the king of all dullards not to appreciate just how important tonight is to approximately 3.19 million people.

If Qatar 2022 feels like a last hurrah for Wales, certainly Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, then it’s the beginning of something for the USA. They are the second youngest squad at the tournament behind Ghana, with an average age of 25. And at 23, Leeds midfielder Tyler Adams is their youngest captain at a World Cup since Walter Bahr in 1950.

All connected with the USMNT already have half an eye on 2026, when they will co-host the tournament and can dream about going beyond the quarter-finals for the first time. The World Cup is also a new experience for their squad. It’s only eight years since the last appearance, but after qualifying for seven tournaments in a row, missing out in 2018 was an unwelcome shock. DeAndre Yedlin is the only player who was in Brazil in 2014.

Both teams had to work pretty hard to qualify. Wales beat Austria and then Ukraine in the play-offs; the US finished third in the Concacaf standings, behind Canada and Mexico, thanks almost entirely to their excellent home form. They’ve won none of their last eight games outside America, but they are traditionally awkward opponents for anyone at a World Cup. It feels close to a 50/50 game.

If you’re into the whole rankings thing, this game is 16th v 19th. (Surprisingly, given events earlier today, this is the only group in the tournament with all four teams in the top 20.) If the other results go as expected – which they won’t, they never do, so I’m not sure what my point is – this will be the most important game in Group B, the one that decides who plays the Netherlands, Senegal or Ecuador in the last 16.

As such this feels like a classic musn’t-lose game, although for some it’s a who-gives-a-flying-one-about-the-result game: Wales are playing at a World Cup for the first time in 64 years, and the rest is just detail.

That’s it from me. I’ll leave you Ben Fisher’s match report and Tom Jenkins’ gallery. Thanks for your company and emails – goodnight.

The post-match thoughts of Tim Weahwho scored a delightful opening goal

[On the goal] Christian gave me a beautiful ball and it was up to me to finish it. [On a game of two halves] It felt like in the first half we had a lot of energy, a lot of momentum … and then coming into the second-half we dialed down and Wales turned it up a notch. They started pressing us, they had most of the ball and I think at the end that’s what really hurt us.

[On what changes are needed before the England game] In a World Cup, the most important thing is that we didn’t lose. We need to continue to do what we do best and keep working.

“With the USA’s wonderful first half wiped outthis has to be considered a victory for Wales,” says Mary Waltz. “The USA advanced in 2014 with a W1 D1 L1 record but they wilted under the Wales pressure. Disappointing.”

It’s stupid to look too far ahead, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. If England win all three games, and both Wales and the USA beat Iran, one of them will go through with four points. Also, if England beat the US on Friday, chances are they will rest players in their final match against Wales.

Then again, the USA have never lost to England at a World Cup.

I’ve just realized that Gio Reyna didn’t get on the field. Unless he was injured, that’s pretty hard to fathom.

Gregg Berhalter’s verdict

I think we lost a little bit of power [in the second half], but in the same sense Wales stepped up the pressure and we had some good counter-attacking opportunities but I thought the guys dealt with it well. We kept going until the end, we left everything out there.

“The view from the USA on Fox,” begins Eric Garcia. “Landon Donovan, Alexi Lalas and Clint Dempsey all disappointed and feel like this was a win thrown away.”

They were i know good in the first half. They did sit on their lead a bit too much after the break, though part of that was down to Wales’ improvement.

And here’s Gareth Bale

Not a good first half – they played really well and we were poor. But it was a great talk from the gaffer at half-time, we changed a few things – nothing I wanna share too much – and came out battling. We looked like we were gonna win the game from the second half. It’s a great point, we showed character… and we go again.

Yeah, I was always gonna take the penalty. No doubts in my head. I feel like I have to step up, and I’m happy to do so. It’s incredible to have a World Cup goal but I’d rather have the three points. Our second-half performance was fantastic so we’ll take a lot of confidence. I felt a little bit tired towards the end – I can’t believe there were nine minutes added on – but we have to dig deep for our country. We always do.

Next up in Group B

Wales play Iran on Friday (10am GMT), then England meet the USA later in the day (7pm GMT, 2pm EST).

Rob Page’s verdict

It’s important not to lose the first game. It was similar to the Switzerland game in the Euros – we showed character and determination to come back and get a point. [On the half-time change] It was nothing against Daniel James, it just suited the game to have Kieffer [Moore] hon. We couldn’t play through their press so we tried to play over it.

“It’s all about Bale-o, rightly so. He’s never let us down. We had some players who cramped up in the last few minutes – they haven’t played much football this season – so the medical team have got some work to do to get us ready for Friday. To see the Red Wall, it’s been incredible.”

Full-time: USA 1-1 Wales

Peep peep! A game of two distinct 45-minutes segments, and an honorable draw. The USA were too dynamic for Wales in the first half and scored a lovely goal through Timothy Weah. Wales’ second-half performance was much better, and they were rewarded when Gareth Bale – who had barely had a kick – won and converted a penalty in the 82nd minute. I say ‘converted’: he walloped it in.

90+10 mins Acosta is booked for a very cynical foul on Bale. Turner had come miles out of his area to head a long ball back towards the halfway line. It fell to Bale, who was lining up a shot from 55 yards when Acosta showed him over.

90+8 mins Wales play on even though Pulisic is down. Thomas’s cross is controlled well by Moore, who tries to rumble through three defenders and almost manages it. Wales come again but Bale is tackled superbly on the edge of the D by Adams.

90+7 mins Yedlin’s deep cross is punched away a little nervously, but ultimately safely by Hennessey.

90+5 mins Ampadu is down again. I think it’s cramp rather than anything more serious, but he is going to be replaced by Joe Morrell. Ampadu had a fine game and has arguably been Wales’ best player, though not their chief headline-grabber.

90+4 mins Roberts’ dangerous cross is headed away well by Zimmerman, this time forcing his way legitimately in front of Bale.

90+3 mins: Wales substitution Ampadu wins a thrilling block tackle with Zimmerman, but injures himself in the process. While he is beating treated, Sorba Thomas replaces the weary Harry Wilson.

90+1 min There will be, gulp, nine minutes of added time.

89 mins Johnson almost wins it for Wales! He collected a loose ball in the inside-right channel, surged into the area and struck a shot straight at Turner from a tight angle. He didn’t really have any support – Bale was wheezing towards the area – so it was fair enough to go for goal.

88 mins Ah, mea culpa: apparently it was Walker Zimmerman who fouled Bale, not Tim Ream. A shocking bit of manbunism from me, for which I apologise.

88 mins Robinson is lucky not to be booked for a cynical foul on Johnson.

87 mins Some people claim Gareth Bale is a big-game player, and frankly that is absolute nonsense: he is and always has been a huge-game player.

86 mins Looks like that email about the Cubs just before half-time wasn’t too far off the mark. Wales have been very good in the second half, but the USA will wonder if they were a bit too content to sit on their 1-0 lead. You do that at your peril when Gareth Bale’s scriptwriter is in the mood.

84 mins “Felt like I didn’t breathe for a long time there!” says Matt Dony. “I love Bale so much. He has a Stokes-esque ability to make things happen. Unbelievable force of will.”

83 mins I’m not sure realm Zimmerman did get the ball, on reflection. Either way it was a foul, and a pretty stupid one, because he went through Bale.

He smashed it in! Turner went the right way, to his left, but Bale bulleted it into the corner. He has done bugger all tonight, the square root of bugger all, and it matters not one jot. This is spine-tingling stuff!

GOAL! USA 1-1 Wales (Bale 82 pen)

Take that peg off the nose, inhale the sweet fragrance: Gareth Bale has scored Wales’ first World Cup goals in 64 years!

PENALTY TO WALES!

80 mins Ramsey’s cutback from the byline bobbles towards Bale, back to goal in the area. realm Zimmerman goes straight through him and the referee gives a penalty! realm Zimmerman did get the ball, but he took an absurd shortcut through the back of Bale to get there. It’s a clear penalty.

80 mins “Bale’s having a peg-on-the-nose stinker tonight,” says Tony Hughes.

How many times have I told you about the word yet.

79 mins: Wales substitution Weah goes down and the referee stops play. Wales aren’t happy, and Wilson gives him a mouthful. The break in play allows Brennan Johnson to come on in place of Neco Williams; that should mean a switch to 4-3-3.

77 mins Pulisic’s very deep corner is headed wide by the off balance Aaronson. A half chance at best.

77 mins Wales had a really good spell at the start of the second half, but the USA seem to have weathered the storm. I’m surprised we haven’t seen Brennan Johnson yet.

76 mins Wright involved gets straight away, flicking a header wide from about 15 yards. It wasn’t much of a chance – he was running away from goal when he met Weah’s cross.
