This World Cup Bracket and Schedule is for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. The thirty-two teams were divided into eight groups of four countries each. The top two teams in each group advance to the knockout rounds. After that, the competition moves on to a round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals, and the final. The United States was minutes away from defeating Wales; however, a late penalty by Gareth Bale ensured a thrilling 11 draw (yes, they exist) Monday in Group B. Tim Weah, who scored the US goal in the first half, was active on both offense and defense.
