Wales draw 1-1 with United States at World Cup after late Gareth Bale penalty
22 November, 2022, 9:31 am
Gareth Bale converted a penalty kick in the 84th minute to offset Tim Weah’s first-half goal and give Wales a 1-1 draw in the return to the World Cup for both nations.
Weah, a son of former Fifa Player of the Year and current Liberian President George Weah, scored after a pass from Christian Pulisic in the 36th minute.
Back in the World Cup after missing the 2018 tournament, the United States appeared headed to victory. But Walker Zimmerman ploughed down Bale from behind with the Welsh star’s back to the goal, and referee Abdulrahman Al-Jassim of host Qatar pointed to the penalty spot.
Next up for the United States is a high-profile matchup against England on Saturday, the same day Wales faces Iran. England opened with a 6-2 rout of the Iranians.
