By Rubén Morales Iglesias: England gained three points on Monday in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in their 6-2 rout of Iran putting them at the top of Group B.

Wales and the United States have a point each after their one draw, but Wales are ranked second based on fair play points. According to the World Cup regulations, fair play points will be tiebreakers in case the overall and head-to-head records of teams are tied. The fair play points are calculated based on the yellow and red cards the teams receive in their group matches. A first yellow card merits a −1 point, an indirect red card (second yellow card) is −3 points, a direct red card is −4 points, while a yellow card and direct red card will cost the team −5 points. The regulations say only one of the penalties can be applied to a player in a single match.

Today, the United States received 4 yellow cards while Wales only got two. That’s why Wales is 2nd and the United States third.

By those rules, England came out unscathed today as they didn’t receive any cards. Iran got two, so they lost two fair play points.
Iran is in last place without a point.

The second set of Group B games is scheduled for Friday. Wales face Iran at 4:00 am, while the United States battle England at 1:00 pm.
