Wales’ opening fixture at the Qatar World Cup will be against the USA following England’s opener against Iran. How to watch on UK TV and squad news

Wales are currently making their final preparations ahead of their grand return to the World Cup. This will mark the first time since 1958 that Wales have reached the tournament proper of the World Cup and following two strong performances in the recent Euros championships, they will hope to progress just as far, if not further than they managed over 60 years ago.

The Red Dragons narrowly missed out on World Cup play-off in 2018 but this year Rob Page’s squad defied many expectations by reaching the finals while the USA struggled through the qualification rounds and their manager, Gregg Berhalter, is now under increasing pressure to get his rising stars to deliver. Notably, Berhalter is the first man to represent the USA at a World Cup as both a player and coach after he featured for the USMNT at the 2002 and 2006 tournaments.

Star players Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie will be crucial if the USA are to progress into the next stage - which they are tipped to do - while Wales’ talisman Gareth Bale will have the hopes of his nation resting heavily on his shoulders and indeed his left foot.

Here is all you need to know ahead of their World Cup fixture next week...
