BOSTON — The 2022 FIFA World Cup Tournament kicks off Monday from Qatar and the United States will be in action.
The U.S. men’s national team will be playing in Group B alongside England, Iran and Wales. It gets the Welsh first in a game that kicks off Monday, Nov. 21, at 2 p.m. They will follow that tilt up with a showdown against England on Black Friday and a game against Iran on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
Boston is not often thought of as a soccer town, but those who think that haven’t visited the bars and restaurants that Yelp has deemed the best places in the city to watch the World Cup.
These are the best spots in the area to enjoy all of the World Cup action, according to Yelp’s Reggie Williams:
