World Cup 2022 Group B: Fixtures, results, standings, squads & full details

FIFA World Cup Group B
Everything you need to know about the group that includes England and the USMNT!

The draw for the 2022 World Cup paired pre-tournament favourites England with USA, Wales and Iran in Group B.

Barring the goalless draw to the USA, England justified their status as favourites by dispatching off Iran and Wales with strong, dominant, and comfortable performances, therefore topping the group.

While there was much optimism about the USA in this World Cup, there was still doubt if they could make it past the group stages. However, the Americans surprised many with their solidity, conceding only one goal in 3 games (none from open play), and remaining unbeaten.

Iran would be disappointed they didn't secure qualification. They were one Christian Pulisic goal away from finishing as runners-up in the group.

Wales didn't show up for either of their games against Iran and England, being outrun easily by both nations. They will now focus on regrouping with the younger generation and qualifying for 2026.
