US ties with Wales on World Cup return


The U.S. men’s soccer team tied with Wales in its first World Cup game in eight years on Monday. Forward Tim Weah gave the U.S. a deserved half-time lead when he latched onto Christian Pulisic’s pass before calmly shooting past Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy in the 36th minute. But the U.S., which is the second-youngest team in the tournament, was unable to find a go-ahead goal. Wales tied the game in the 82nd minute when captain Gareth Bale stepped up to convert a penalty after he was fouled by Walker Zimmerman. Wales’ last World Cup appearance was in 1958.
