WALES have their first World Cup game in 64 years when they take on USA tonight!

England await later on in the group stage, but first the Dragons have to battle a tricky test in Christian Pulisic and the USA team – a country over 100 times the population of Wales.

But a match-up with the United States – who host the next World Cup – should also get fans buzzing with excitement.

Rob Page’s men will be desperate to repeat their Euro 2016 performance when Chris Coleman’s side reached the semi-finals.

And Welsh fans will be buzzing at the thought of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau being sang at a World Cup for the first time since 1958.

USA missed out on the 2018 World Cup four years ago and Gregg Berhalter – a former Crystal Palace defender – is keen to leave his mark on a major tournament.
