Iran looked to use a defensive strategy to hold off England in their tournament opener on Monday. However, they ended up surrendering three goals in the opening half, and never recovered. They did try and give themselves some help in the goal differential with a pair of goals from Mehdi Taremi, but they still ended up on the wrong end of a 6-2 contest.

In their first match in the World Cup in over 60 years, the Welsh side looked in trouble as they were trailing the United States heading into the final 10 minutes on Monday. However, Gareth Bale’s penalty in the 82nd minute helped level the score, giving Wales a hard-earned point.

These two met in an international friendly back in 1978, although they have never faced off in a competitive match.

It was a missed opportunity for the Yankees against Wales on Monday. Tim Weah’s tally in the first half gave the Americans hope that they could come away with three points. However, the late penalty awarded to Wales forced the US to settle for a draw. If the Americans want any chance of getting out of the group stage, they will need to use the first 45 minutes against the Welsh on Monday, and turn it into a full 90 against England.

The Three Lions stormed out of the gates in their first match against Iran. They wore down their opponents before breaking through in the 35th minute with a goal from teenager Jude Bellingham. After Bukayo Saka scored in the 43rd minute, Raheem Sterling capped off an impressive opening half with an own goal to make it 3-0. Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish piled it on in the second, with England pulling away with a 6-2 win.

Although England has three wins over the Americans, all of them have come during friendlies. In their two World Cup encounters in 1950 and 2010, the US won and infamously drew with the English side, respectively.

Qatar made an embarrassing statement in the tournament’s opening match last Sunday, becoming the first host nation to lose an opening match at the World Cup, falling 2-0 to Ecuador. They hope to grab points against Senegal, with the Dutch looming in their group stage finale next week.

Senegal showed some might early on against the Netherlands, keeping the Dutchmen at bay for well over 80 minutes, even getting some chances of their own. Yet, a couple of goals against late in the match put Senegal in a rough spot, falling 2-0. A win on Friday is a necessity if Senegal wants any chance of advancing.

  • Thus: 11 am ET
  • Where: Khalifa International Stadium (Ar-Rayyan, Qatar)

As stated previously, the Netherlands might be counting their stars after how things went against a lesser Senegal side on Monday. The Dutch took their opponent lightly and it almost cost them. Thankfully, Cody Gapko and Davy Klaassen found the back of the net to give the Oranje a 2-0 win.

Ecuador made a statement in their first match of the World Cup against Qatar, putting pressure on the host nation in the first half, with a pair of goals from Enner Valencia in the opening 45 minutes, including a penalty, helping send the nation to a 2-0 win.

This will be the first time the Dutch and Ecuador sides have met in a competitive contest.
