USA this time. Tim Weah scored in the 36th minute on a feed from Christian Pulisic. USA 1`, Wales 0

Wound up 1-1. USA defended very well until Walker Zimmerman took a bad penalty and Gareth Bale slammed home the PK.

Next up, England on Friday. England blasted Iran 6-2 today. Goal difference may well decide who advances out of this group.

The Zimmerman foul was baffling. Bale’s back was to goal. And it’s not like it was an iffy foul (especially with that ref). Make him earn it.

Exactly. It was a clear, obvious, completely unnecessary penalty.

I’m of Welsh ancestry. I’ll take the point.
