It will be interesting to see what the teams will prepare for us in the second round. The United States and Wales claim to leave the group only if they defeat Iran. Therefore, for the Welsh it will be a fateful match. Garett Bale should be included, he did not just come to Qatar.
Group B: how was the first round
The England team in the first round quietly beat the oldest team in the Fifa World Cup, Iran, with a score of 6-2. And Wales and the United States, in turn, played a strong-willed draw in the first match, not without the help of the “star” of the Wales national team - Garett Bale. He played a great match and despite the end of his career in top clubs, he still shows a decent result at the international level. He needs to help his team in the fight for the playoffs.
As for Iran, this is the most defensive and age team. At the World Cup 2022 matches are often unexpected and unpredictable, but not in the confrontation between England and Iran. The British calmly dismantled the Iranians and now there is no doubt - this team came to pick up the World Cup Cup.
Expectations from the match Wales - Iran
How will the teams approach their confrontation? The Iranian national team can no longer count on getting out of the group. Only if they do not perform a miracle, of course, and can fight the strong teams of the USA and Wales. It’s too early to write them off, but the standings look disappointing for them - a terrible difference between goals scored and missed and 0 in the points column.
Wales, on the other hand, played a draw “on character” with the USA, which gives them an additional charge and motivation for further matches. They know that their competitors for reaching the playoffs, the next match against England. The Welsh understand that they need a victory and they are unlikely to let her go, for them this is not just a championship. After all, Garett Bale may end his career in the national team after the 2022 World Cup. We expect excellent football from Wales.
