2022 World Cup Draw Results: Full Groups, Schedule


The United States beat England and Iran in the men’s World Cup draw on Friday, as organizers unveiled the full list of group stage fixtures for the 2022 tournament.

At a glittering, utterly bizarre ceremony in Doha, the USA, seeded in Pot 2 after Wednesday’s qualification, drew England from Pot 1, then Iran from Pot 3. Their fourth group opponents will be the winners of a European playoff in June — either Wales, Scotland or Ukraine.

The USMNT plays England in their second game on Friday November 25, Black Friday. The opener will be played against the European playoff winners on the opening day of the tournament, November 21st. The group final against Iran is on November 29th.

All three games will kick off at 10:00 p.m. local time, which is 2:00 p.m. ET. FIFA released the final schedule, including venues and game times, late Friday.

Below is the full draw followed by the full schedule.

Two teams from each group advance to the knockout rounds. The winner of Group A plays the runners-up from Group B in the round of 16. The winner of Group B plays the runner-up from Group A. Groups C and D have the same matchup structure; Groups E and F; and groups G and H.

The USMNT failed to qualify for the 2018 World Championship. In 2014, when pots were seeded more geographically than by FIFA rankings, the Americans played Germany, Portugal and Ghana. They advanced to second place from the group and lost to Belgium in the round of 16.

They opened the 2010 World Cup against England and drew 1-1. Both teams are better today than they were then.
