Transcript for USA ties 1-1 with Wales in opening World Cup match
- Got to go to the World Cup. In the opening match for Team USA, fans thought the team had a big win until the final moments. Will Reeve is live in Doha with more for us. Good morning, Will.

They scored on a penalty kick and that is how the game ended, 1-1. The US is guaranteed two more games in this round robin before they can try to advance to the knockout stage. The top two teams will advance.

The captain of the team afterwards saying, "We want them to know we are with them, and by their side, and share their pain." And by the way, guys, Leo Messi and Argentina lost today. That's the World Cup.
