    Most significant for us with the Wales win is that it tells us who the US’s first opponent is (Wales) and that group has to be considered the group of death since the lowest ranked team in the group (Iran) is the 18th ranked team in the tournament and although Wales was drawn from pot 4, they would have been in pot 3 if the games were played in March as originally scheduled (and in pot 2 if a country ranked higher than Qatar was hosting).

    • A group of death has 3 or rarely 4 strong teams in it, these teams all expect to advance but obviously only 2 will do so. The only such group I see is G (Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland). Group B has 1 strong team. Most significant for us with the Wales win is that UKRAINE BOSSED THEM ALL OVER THE FIELD but gave up a fluke goal and lost. I think team USA! USA! will have an easier time against Wales than they would have had against Ukraine and has at least a decent chance of making it to the next round.

      • Andy Muenz says:

        Since they’ve switched from geographic based groups to ranking based, I think this is as close as we’re going to see to a group of death, especially since Iran can’t be slept on.
