England 0 United States 0

England could only pick up a point from their second World Cup match against the United States in Group B in Qatar.

Christian Pulisic went the closest to scoring for the US when he struck the bar.

Qatar 1

[Muntari 48]

Senegal 3

[Dia 41, Diedhiou 48, Dieng 84]

Host nation Qatar crashed out of the World Cup after losing their second successive Group A game against Senegal in Doha.

Senegal’s Boulaye Dia broke the deadlock after the Qatar defence failed to clear their lines before Famara Diedhiou, a former team-mate of Nahki Wells at Bristol City, headed home to double their lead.

Qatar pulled a goal back through a poweful header from Mohammed Muntari and were searching for an equaliser when Bamba Dieng extinguished any hopes of a comeback when he stroked home.

Netherlands 1

[Gakpo 6]

Ecuador 1

[Valencia 49]

Enner Valencia netted his third goal of the tournament to earn Ecuador a point against Netherlands in Group A in Qatar.

Cody Gakpo gave Netherlands the lead before Valencia, who was later stretchered off, scored an equaliser.

Wales 0

Iran 2

[Cheshmi 90+8, Rezaeian 90+11]

Ten-man Wales suffered a heartbreaking defeat after conceding twice in stoppage time against Iran in Group B in Doha.

Wales looked ragged throughout against an improved Iran side, who were beaten 6-2 by England in their opening game.

Wayne Hennessey, the Wales goalkeeper, was sent off for a reckless challenge on Mehdi Taremi in the 86th minute.

Iran opened the scoring through Rouzbah Cheshmi with 20-yard strike before Ramin Rezaeian struck on the counterattack to leave Wales on the brink of elimination.
