Bales trains with his Wales team-mates as World Cup preparations continue

Wales kick off their first World Cup campaign in 64 years when they take on the United States in the two nations’ first Group B game. Both teams will have their sights set on the Round of 16 and tonight’s victory would boost their chances of progressing from a group that also includes England and Iran.

Wales will rely on the talents of captain Gareth Bale and experienced midfielder Aaron Ramsey as they hope to impress in Qatar. Both players are coming to the later stages of their careers but still shine when playing for their country with Bale in particular a provider of magic moments for the Dragons.

It will be their biggest test yet as the United look to make their mark on football’s biggest stage. They have already enjoyed encouraging World Cup campaigns, reaching the round of 16 in 2010 and 2014, but they failed to qualify for the 2018 edition in Russia and as such they will be particularly keen to stay in Qatar.

Gregg Berhalter’s squad is full of young attacking talent with Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic their main attraction. He is complemented by Leeds’ Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams as well as a host of talent from Europe’s top five leagues. This is a tough American team with high hopes for their campaign.
