USA 1 Wales 1 LIVE REACTION: Bale penalty cancels out Weah’s opener as points shared in Doha – World Cup latest updates

What could have been

While it wasn’t a poor start to the tournament for Gregg Berhalter’s side by any means, this will feel like two points dropped rather than one gained.

Defender Walker Zimmerman will be disappointed to have conceded what turned out to be the game-leveling penalty with just eight minutes left of regulation time on the clock, especially given that it was a decent performance across the board by the U.S.

From a broader perspective, the result was fair with Berhalter’s side enjoying 58 percent of the possession.

However, both sides squandered their fair share of chances in what was an end-to-end game – particularly so in the second half.

And with just one shot on target, the USMNT’s forwards may want to put in a few extra hours of shooting practice before they face England on Friday at 2 pm ET.
