Tick tock. Just over 10 minutes to go. Can the U. hold on!? Brenden Aaronson on for McKennie. The Leeds midfielder needs to help them get on the ball and stop Wales surging forward. CLOSE! Somehow Kieffer Moore heads over from close range. What a chance for Wales. SAVE! Matt Turner pushes a diving header from Ben Davies over the bar. It is all Wales now. #USA 1-0 #WAL — Joe Prince-Wright (@JPW_NBCSports) November 21, 2022Wales have started the second half well and the USMNT are having to spend a lot of time defending. TIM WEAH GOAL! 💥#USMNT take a 1-0 lead over Wales.
Leckie and Mooy both started against France four years ago. But coach Australia coach Graham Arnold’s plans for this match were hit when winger Martin Boyle pulled out on Sunday with a knee injury. Boyle has a decent scoring record with five goals from 19 appearances for Australia. “We all feel for Martin and it is a cruel blow for him, ” Arnold said.
USA have to make the most of being on top here. Josh Sargent almost got his first World Cup goal. #USMNT 🎥: @TelemundoSports pic. com/Of7sujQ46g — NBC Sports Soccer (@NBCSportsSoccer) November 21, 2022A decent start from the USA. Wales haven’t been able to keep the ball and the Americans are knocking it about nicely.
Mathew Leckie was Australia’s best player at the 2014 World Cup and poses a threat from the wing. The 31-year-old Leckie is also the national team’s top scorer with 13 international goals.

France vs Australia live: How to watch, stream link, team newsThe USA and Wales battled it out to a tight, tense draw in their World Cup opener as both teams will be fairly happy with that outcome in Group B. [ MORE: Player ratings | What we learned]But the U. S. will feel like this was one that got away as Gareth Bale equalized with eight minutes to go for Wales (playing in their first World Cup game since 1958) as the young Americans couldn’t hold on for all three points. After eight years away from the World Cup for the U. S., this was as tense as you would expect as Bale grabbed a point for the Welsh late on as a draw was a fair result. WATCH FULL MATCH REPLAYAfter a dominant start the U. took the lead in the first half as Christian Pulisic surged forward and played a perfect through ball to the onrushing Tim Weah who poked home confidently to send American fans everywhere wild.
France coach Didier Deschamps is missing the injured N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba — his dynamic engine room from 2018. Pogba has played 91 times for France and one of his 11 goals came in the 4-2 win over Croatia in the 2018 final. While Pogba’s form has been up and down since then, Kante’s consistency rarely ever dropped and he’s arguably an even bigger loss. So Deschamps faces Australia with a revamped midfield where the most experienced player is Adrien Rabiot — Pogba’s teammate at Italian club Juventus — with 29 appearances. Now Rabiot will likely line up on the left of a midfield three at Al Janoub Stadium with 22-year-old Aurelien Tchouameni in the center, and either Eduardo Camavainga or 23-year-old Matteo Guendouzi on the right. But Australia has a solid midfield, too, led by the experienced Aaron Mooy — a tough tackler and able passer who played two seasons in the Premier League with Brighton and has made 53 appearances.

The USMNT get the goal their dominant display deserves. Tim Ream has been the best player on the pitch so far. My word. Superb on the ball and dominant defensively.
What a comeback story! #USMNT — Joe Prince-Wright (@JPW_NBCSports) November 21, 2022Sergino Dest and Weston McKennie both booked within a few minutes. Not ideal. Both have been battling for fitness and only just made this game. Changes at half time? Save! Wayne Hennessey saves as Rodon heads towards his own goal after good work from Tim Weah. Sargent then powers a header wide from close range.

Gregg Berhalter also says that they did a "last-minute check" on Reyna and think he'll be able to play.

Most teams would love to have either Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann or Olivier Giroud in their forward line, let alone all three.

Also ReadBut France does not have the same assurances in midfield, and that is where Australia could trouble Les Bleus on Tuesday in their opening Group D match. France struggled to beat Australia 2-1 when the teams met in their World Cup opener four years ago, and that was with a full-strength midfield.

That sets things up for a very tense Group B. GOALLL! No, is the answer. Walker Zimmerman goes through the back of Gareth Bale and gives away a penalty kick. Bale then picks himself up and slams home. 1-1.

Here we go! The teams are out, the anthems have been sung and the fireworks are flying. It is go time for the USA at the World Cup.

CWPAN Y BYD! #ArBenYByd | #FIFAWorldCup | #TogetherStronger pic. com/IGtOt7HJsL — Wales 🏴 (@Cymru) November 21, 2022Key storylines, players to watch closelyFor the USMNT their midfield core is going to be their strength but there are still plenty of question marks around the defense. Veteran Tim Ream could start at center back to provide experience, while the midfield trio of Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams and Yunus Musah are locked in as the main men in midfield.
But at the perfect time everything fell together, at least for the first 45 minutes, for Gregg Berhalter and his side. Dest and McKennie were fit enough to start, Tim Ream has hit the form of his life to bolster the defensive unit. Christian Pulisic and Tim Weah are fit and firing on all cylinders and this is pretty close to the USMNT’s first choice lineup. The high-pressing game dominated Wales in the first half and the energy of this young team blew their opponents away. When they were on top they got the goal they deserved and everything was slotting into place for the U. when they needed it to.
