Groups are officially set for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The United States is in Group B joined by England, Iran and either Wales, Scotland or Ukraine, depending on the results of a play-in.
USA has a manageable group, probably not the easiest or the hardest. They will certainly be out for redemption after failing to qualify for the World Cup in 2018.
In its last two World Cup appearances, Team USA has advanced to the Round of 16 before being eliminated. The United States did advance to the quarter-finals back in 2002 and the semi-finals way back in 1930.
There is a bit of history in this group, as back in 2010, Team USA tied with England 1-1. They defeated England 1-0 in 1950. In 1998 the United States lost 2-1 to Iran. They have never faced Wales, Scotland, or Ukraine in World Cup play.
Here is a full list of the groups:
Peru/United Arab Emirates/Australia
Costa Rica/New Zealand
Some teams will have to win a play-in still to make it into the World Cup.
The World Cup runs from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18.
