Welsh football fans have headed to boozers as they celebrate Wales’s first World Cup match in more than 60 years.

Supporters gathered at Elevens, the bar owned by Gareth Bale, in Cardiff and at the Vale Sports Arena in Penarth wearing sports regalia and proudly flying the Welsh Dragon.

They are facing off against the USA in their first Group B match, with the Americans hoping to make up for failing to qualify for the last tournament in Russia in 2018.

The vociferous Welsh fans will be hoping their team can perform a repeat of their Euro 2016 heroics, where they surprised many to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament.

They face stiff competition to make it out of Group B, which as well as containing the US, holds England and Iran. England saw off the Iranians with a comfortable 6-2 victory earlier today.
