ITV Wales Sports Reporter Matt Southcombe explains who Wales will face in the group stages and the possible outcomes.
All eyes are on Qatar as Wales play at a World Cup tournament for the first time since 1958.
The men's national team ended a 64-year World Cup drought after beating Ukraine 1-0 in June to qualify for the tournament.
Rob Page's side have begun the tournament in mixed-fashion. They earned a point against USA after managing to turn it around following a disappointing first-half.
Bale scored a penalty to level the game and Page will be hoping his side carry the second-half momentum into their next two group games.
Wales are left to face Iran and England in Group B.
If they make it through the group stages, they will then face either the runner-up or the winner of Group A - which could be one of Qatar, the Netherlands, Senegal or Ecuador.
Wales' fixture schedule:
Wales v USA , 1-1 (Weah 36', Bale 82' (P), Monday 21 November 2022
Wales v Iran, Friday 25 November, 2022, 10:00 (UK time) on BBC One - Ahmed bin Ali Stadium
