FC Dallas lost their hard-fought MLS Cup Conference Semi-Final match 2-1 to Austin FC this past weekend.
Dallas soccer fans will now turn their attention to the 2022 FIFA World Cup that begins in Qatar on November 20th.
Team USA will return to the World Cup after a disappointing qualifying campaign saw them miss the 2018 World Cup for the first time since 1986.
Team USA drew group B, which includes England, Iran, and Wales. It’s a difficult group, but the second place should be up for grabs.

World Cup Winner
Team USA +10000 to Win World Cup
The United States are 100-1 to win the 2022 World Cup. These odds imply a probability of 1% Team USA wins the World Cup.
Brazil is the favorite with odds of 4-1, while France (+600), Argentina (+650), England (+700), Spain (+800), Netherlands (+1400), Portugal (+1400), and Belgium (+1400) are the other nations who are considered to have a legitimate shot at winning the tournament.
Group B Winner
Team USA +550 to Win Group B
The United States have odds of +550 to win Group B. Those odds imply a probability of 15.4% that the USA finishes atop the group.
England is the favorite to win Group B with odds of -300 (75% probability), while Wales has a similar chance to the USA with odds of +600, and Iran has an outside chance of topping the group with odds of +1600.
To Qualify From Group B
Team USA +100 to Qualify; Team USA -138 to not Qualify
The United States qualifying from Group B to the knockout stage of the tournament is close to a coin flip, according to the oddsmakers, with a slight lean towards the United States failing to qualify.
The United States plays Wales in their opening game of the tournament on November 21st. This is a massive match between two teams expected to be battling for the second position in Group B.
The USA then plays England on November 25th and finishes their group schedule facing Iran on November 29th.
I think United States fans would be happy to have a win-and-you’re-in situation heading into the final group game vs. Iran.
