After 3,065 days, it’s finally here.
The United States men’s national team kicks off the World Cup with a massive game in the group stage against Wales. After missing the 2018 edition of the tournament, the quest for redemption starts with a game in which the U.S. must get a result to make it out of a group that also includes England and Iran.
It will be the World Cup debut for nearly the entire squad — right back DeAndre Yedlin is the only holdover from 2014 in Brazil and may not feature in this game — but the young American team is brimming with potential.
Now, it’s time to see if they can put results to all the hype.
