A tough game for the U.S. Men's National Team ended in a draw against Wales Monday afternoon.
It's not over, though. And North Texans are proving they will continue to show their support.
A number of bars and restaurants opened early on Monday for fans looking to watch England take on Iran.
"I'm happy to see everybody win. I'm more excited about the matches, seeing exciting games and how it all ends up," said Saul Castaneda who woke up early to watch the match at the Dubliner in Dallas.
"It's entertainment, it's fun. I love the World Cup. It's great to see everyone get together, support their teams no matter what team it is. We enjoy it and it brings extra business for sure," said Dubliner owner Peter Kenny.
After a strong start from the U.S., Gareth Bale converted a penalty kick in the 82nd minute to offset Tim Weah’s first-half goal and give Wales a 1-1 draw Monday in the return to the World Cup for both nations.
Weah scored after a pass from Christian Pulisic in the 36th minute.
Next up for the United States is a high-profile matchup against England on Friday, the same day Wales faces Iran. England opened with a 6-2 rout of the Iranians earlier Monday.
Dallas has shown its support for its local players.
Notes from Apple's 'Ted Lasso' have popped up on local billboards showing their support for local players Jesus Ferreira, Kellyn Acosta and Weston McKennie.
Local artists have also painted murals of Ferreira and McKennie.
In 2026, the World Cup party will be in the U.S., and some matches will be in Arlington.
