World Cup results: Celtic and Rangers fans got to bed happy with today’s outcomes

Former Celtic player Timothy Weah and e-Ranger Aron  Ramsay made their mark on Day Two of the World Cup being played controversially in Qatar tonight.
Weah scored a brilliant goal for the USA, who drew 1-1 with Wales and Ramsay acquitted himself well in that match grew into a 100-minutes-long thriller.
Wales were unbelievably bad – ITV Sport pundit Roy Keane said they were “shocking” – in the first half, but their veteran talisman Gareth Bale inspired them to a creditable draw.
Bale was not only pulled down by a tackle from behind inside the USA penalty box, but rose to his feet to smash the award high into the net, giving the USA goalkeeper no chance.
This brought roars of delight from the Welsh fans in their red and yellow tops and bucket hats and they filled the night sky with their songs of praise for their boys from Valleys.
Earlier in the day, favourites England gave us what should be one of the highest-scoring games of the competition with a 6-2 hammering of dreadful Iran.
The tournament got officially underway after the opening ceremony and inaugural match on Sunday. Ecuador spoiled Qatar’s party by handing them a 2-0 loss, and the result was never in question.The Netherlands, with another ex-Celtic star, Virgil Van Dyke at the heart of their defence, landed three points against Senegal.
* After today’s action the World Cup appeared to cast off the cloak of controversy and misery that has shrouded it so far. But there was more political angst for the Wales fans at the turnstiles getting into the stadium when the pro LGBT designs and slogans on their colourful bucket hats were confiscated by the security officials. There will be four matches per day for the rest of the group stage. Only the top two teams in each group advance to the knockout rounds.

FIFA World Cup results on Sunday

Qatar 0-2 Ecuador

Qatar disappointed in its World Cup bow on home soil and the match was over by halftime as Enner Valencia’s brace was enough to see Ecuador roll.

It’s the first time that a host nation has been defeated in its opening match and Qatar manager Felix Sanchez has his work cut out for him to lift the spirits of his team after the deflating loss which saw fans streaming out of the Al Bayt Stadium well before the final whistle.

2022 World Cup matches tomorrow

Groups C and D will be at the center of attention on Tuesday morning on TV at 9am, although there is no truth in the rumour that it will be sponsored by Kellogs and Scotts Porage Oats.

Super star Lionel Messi’s Argentina will take on the Saudis. Saudi Arabia isn’t expected to give the Albiceleste much of a fight in their first contest. Mexico and Poland are realistically competing for second place behind Argentina.

Denmark vs Tunisia and France vs. Australia are two mismatches on paper, but the World Cup has always offered up a surprise or two during the group stage, which could through Group D into chaos.
