FIFA WC 2022: Late Gareth Bale penalty earns Wales 1-1 draw with US

To avoid a losing return to the World Cup after 64 years in a fascinating Group B encounter at a raucous Ahmad Bin Aali stadium, a late penalty by senior striker Gareth Bale earned Wales a 1-1 draw with the United States on Monday. 

Wales’ all-rounder stepped up to the penalty spot, dragged down by U.S defender Tim Ream in the box, in the 82nd minute and made no mistake throwing the ball into the top corner in front of the Red Wall of fans. 

The United States began on a speedy note and took a well deserved 1-0 lead with a 36th minute goal from Timothy Weah, with one of the youngest teams at the tournament and returning themselves after 8 years. They were unlucky no to go into the break with a huge advantage against the flat Welsh. 

The son of Liberian president , Weah timed his run to perfection after a perfectly-weighted pass from Christian Pulisic and slipped the ball past Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hannessey.
