On the third and final day of group B of the World Cup in Qatar

, England beat Wales 3-0

and qualified for the round of 16 where they will face Senegal.

The United States also did well,

beating Iran 1-0

in a balanced match without great emotions on the pitch: the Stars and Stripes team will face the Netherlands.  

Pulisic gives eighths to the USA, Iran is out.

In the stands messages in favor of Iranian women and fair play


A goal by Pulisic in the 38th minute of the first half gives the USA qualification for the second round of the World Cup in Qatar and leaves Iran in despair.

The Americans, who finished group B in second place behind England, continue their journey in Qatar 2022: next Saturday, in the first eighth-final, they will face the Netherlands, who won group A. On the eve of one of the most awaited matches of the first phase of the World Cup, however, there was more than just talk of football.

And it could not be otherwise given the bad relations between Iran and the US.

A few hours earlier, CNN had released the news that the families of the players of the Iranian national soccer team "were threatened with arrest and torture if the players did not behave well before the match against the United States".



Thus, as happened in the match against Wales and unlike the debut against England, the Iranian players sang, or rather, whispered their anthem.

Mouth closed, however, for the star Azmoun.

In the stands of the Al Thumama stadium in Doha, several T-shirts in support of the struggle of Iranian women but also Persian and American fans sitting close to support their teams, under the banner of fair play.

On the other side of the world, on the other hand, on the lawn of the White House, in those same moments, a sign popped up with the inscription: "Force USA! We are all with you!".

And a photo of the sign was reposted on Twitter by President Joe Biden and the First Lady with the caption: "We are confident we can win!".

Trust well placed.

The importance of the stake,

After the excellent performance against Wales, Iran seemed blocked from the possibility of being able to pass the round.

Too lonely Azmoun and the other star Taremi, never dangerous.

The USA was better as they started to grind the game from the middle of the first half, also thanks to the initiatives of McKennie, in midfield, and of Dest on the right wing.

The opening goal was created precisely on the Juventus-Milan axis: McKennie launched for Dest who headed in and offered a golden ball to Pulisic, who easily bagged the 1-0.

A goal that cost him dearly: the 24-year-old Chelsea striker collided with goalkeeper Beiranvand and was forced to remain in the dressing room at half-time.

Weah performed well in the first 45 minutes too:

the son of the legendary George had a goal disallowed for a millimeter of offside in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Upon returning to the field, the Iranian coach Queiroz tried to shake him off, not allowing the dull Azmoun to return, replaced by Ghoddos.

And it was the attacker who tried on a couple of occasions to worry the Americans, first with a header in the 7th minute and then with a foot, almost equalizing 12 minutes later.

Then almost nothing, if it weren't for a protest in the ninth minute of added time for an alleged penalty foul on Taremi.

In the end, the party is American, the tears (never so bitter) Iranian.

In the 24th minute Rashford tries again, his shot from the edge hits Williams in full force who is forced to leave the field about ten minutes later.

England attack while Wales struggle to even get past the half.

The first half is a monologue by the Three Lions national team who however fail to score despite repeated attempts especially by Rushford and Foden.

In the first half, Wales tries in the 50th minute but Allen's shot is too big.

The first half of the game ends 0-0 but the difference in values ​​on the field is evident with England mistress of the field and the game even if imprecise and Wales defending and showing up near Pickford only in the final .



Opaque the performance of captain Gareth Bale so much so that Page replaces him with Johnson in the second half.

At the start of the second half England took the lead: Rashford beat Ward directly from a free kick.

Ball in the center and not even two minutes later the doubling arrives, this time by Foden.

The one-two awakens Wales and in the 10th minute Moore's shot from distance was deflected by Maguire towards his own goal, with Pickford forced into overtime by deflecting for a corner.

England's trio arrives in the 23rd minute and is again signed by Marcus Rashford but Ward is not without fault once again.

At 30' Bellingham goes close to 4-0 but this time the goalkeeper of the Dragons is not wrong.

Wales reacted with pride and tried to threaten on a couple of late occasions but without success.
