USA World Cup 2022 Schedule: Complete Dates and Times for FIFA Men’s Soccer Tournament in Qatar

The United States men’s national team will embark on their journey to the 2022 World Cup and have high hopes for significant progress in Qatar after missing the 2018 tournament.

The 2022 event is something of a chance to make amends after the disappointment of four years ago. The USMNT finished fifth in the final group stage of CONCACAF qualifiers and lost. Now head coach Gregg Berhalter will bring his best 26 players to the Middle East to seize the moment.

Led by Chelsea striker and national team talisman Christian Pulisic, the USMNT will hope to progress through the group stage and put on a show in the knockout rounds but a draw against European clubs England and Wales and the Asian nation Iran in Group B presents a significant challenge.

The Sporting News brings you all the information on when and where the United States is playing and how to follow the action at the 2022 World Cup.

USA 2022 World Cup schedule

The United States begin their World Cup journey with what may be the most important game of the group stage when the Stars & Stripes take on Wales.

Next up is a massive game against England on Black Friday, November 25th, which will have the Americans buzzing with hopes of an enormous upset.

USA World Cup Group: Group B

The USMNT was drawn into Group B alongside England, Wales and Iran. As a pot-2 team, the United States were offered a reasonable draw that offers an opportunity to advance to the knockout rounds, but could also pose challenges and pitfalls along the way.

England, one of the best teams in the world, offers the United States a chance to prove they are among the global footballing powers. Aside from that difficult clash, Wales are formidable opponents led by a world-class player in Bale. Finally, the draw was friendly for Iran as Pot 3 opponents, but as a nation that ranks just outside the top 20 teams in the world, it is not to be taken lightly.
