We've never lost to England in WC play.
Let's not start today! Praying for a win...hoping for a draw.

Wow. Surprised to wake up to this. Was this headed to a 0-0 draw before the welsh keeper was sent off?

Eh

I would rather total control over our destiny which we now do regardless of what happens against england
If we get rocked by England today and Wales manages to beat them, then Wales advances.

Yes, though Iran was already outplaying them

Iran could have had 2 or 3 before the goalie was sent off

I watched the game. Wales was lucky to be in the game at all. Iran was dangerous for most of the game. The second half was basically a fast break for Iran. Wales did nothing.

Is the 3 points for Iran a Texags bit that I missed? There are only two points available in WC match. Winner gets two points. A tie splits them. You don't earn three points for a victory.

Better tell FIFA the point system changed to 2 pts for a win

No, a win really is 3 points and if you edit your post, I'll edit mine.

Well, a draw would have best, but the Wales loss is not terrible. Instead of worrying about pressure for USA to whip Iran by X goals on the third match day, there might be pressure to just win.

I like it. If we can't beat Iran we have no business moving on.

I forgot they changed the scoring. Leave my silly post up there unedited. It won't bother me too much.

No pressure

To move on:

Need to lose by one goal today and beat iran

Or

Tie today and beat Iran

Or

Win today and tie/beat Iran, or lose by no less than one goal


Or the most likely scenario is lose today, but simply beat Iran and we advance (assuming Wales doesn't get good all of a sudden and beat England, which seems unlikely)

When did the change it cause I've watched a lot of soccer and it's always been 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw?

You forgot they changed this in 1994?

Only a win against England really matters today.

If we can't beat Iran we don't deserve to advance. Not a bad result.

If you're just getting out of one of those nuclear fallout shelters and are catching up just go ahead and skip the early 2000s nothing good happens

If we can't we don't deserve to progress to KOs anyways so it's a good litmus test

I know we all want to beat England today for the online content and vibes but we should realistically be rotating heavily and not playing any of our players sitting on a yellow (Dest, Ream, McKennie, and Acosta). I'm ok with still starting Pulisic, Adams, and co. but we need to have subs ready for them in the 60th.

Whales win was the only bad outcome. Tie was also a good outcome but debatable if it was better since we don't have to get a result against England now.

Yellow cards seem like a bigger deal now.

Also, 2 total yellow card=suspended is bull****

I think a tie would've been much more preferable, because now USA could get left out with no losses. (If they tie 3 times.)

Anything besides a win today gets USA nothing since they'll need to beat Iran to advance. I just don't like the pressure in those situations.

But we need to keep the GD down if we lose to England in the event Wales beats England and ends up with better GD than us even if we beat Iran.

England is basically through with a tie, due to their GD, but I'm sure they'd want to finish top of the group to avoid Netherlands in the knockout round.

Why don't we just win the group?
