The opening week of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is coming to a close and we have already witnessed some unforgettable performances and results.

The first finals to be held in the Middle East saw one of the biggest shocks in the tournament's history when Saudi Arabia sealed a remarkable win over one of the tournament favourites in Argentina.

Four-time winners Germany, meanwhile, fell to a surprise defeat against Japanwhile Spain smashed seven goals past the hapless Costa Rica.

England hit the ground running as they hit a beleaguered Iranian side for six to get their World Cup campaign off to a flier.

The Three Lions return to the field on Friday as they look to make it two wins from two games.

Players to watch

England captain Harry Kane has been given the all clear to face the USA on Friday after shaking off an ankle knock, manager Gareth Southgate confirmed.

Kane took a blow to his ankle just before half-time in England's opening 6-2 win over Iran and was substituted late in the second half.

Gareth Bale, who struggled with injuries and fitness for most of the year, converted on a penalty kick in the 82nd minute to earn Wales a 1-1 draw with the United States in their opener. Kieffer Moore could make his first World Cup start after coming on as a second-half sub against the US and made an immediate impact.

Meanwhile, the contest between Ecuador striker Enner Valencia and Netherlands forward Memphis Depay could help decide who wins their match.
