Wales Bale is also the first World Cup scorer in 64 years
Gareth Bale stood as the main character again this time.
Wales tied the United States 1-1 in the first Group B match of the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup at Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Alaiyan, Qatar, at 4 a.m. on the 22nd (Korea Standard Time).
Wales operated a 3-5-2 formation. Bale and James formed the two-top, and Wilson, Ampadu, and Ramsey took charge of the midfield. Williams and Roberts stood on both wingbacks, while Davis, Roden and Mepperm were paired for the three backs. The goalkeeper gloves were worn by Hennessy.
It was not an easy game. Wales lost possession to 4-6 and showed a frustrating flow of attack without releasing any pressure from the U.S. with mobility. When the midfield was blocked, only meaningless long passes were attempted.
He even donated the first point. In the 36th minute of the first half, Pulisic scored a through pass to Weah, who penetrated after a fantastic dribble. Weah saw the goalkeeper come out and finished with a calm shot. The 1-0 score lasted until the end of the second half.
It was also Bale, the “solver” who saved Wales. Bale tripped over the opponent’s defender while receiving a cutback in the 40th minute of the second half. The referee declared a penalty kick (PK), and Bale came out as a kicker and pushed it accurately toward the top right. As I balanced, I was able to earn a valuable point 토토추천사이트
Welsh fans chanted only “Bale” whenever they couldn’t find a solution in the attack. And Bale responded to the call. Wales are back in the World Cup for the first time in 64 years, with Bale shining again in that historic match.
Bale said after the game, “I was confident in my ability. I’m responsible because I was the one who got the PK. “We kept fighting and found a way, and we never gave up,” he said.
