(WXYZ) — The stage is set for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after the final draw was held on Friday afternoon.

The United States was drawn into "Group B" along with England, Iran, and the winner of the Euro Playoff – either Wales, Scotland or Ukraine.

The U.S. earned its spot in the World Cup this year after missing out on 2018's World Cup.

They'll face England on Monday, Nov. 21, the winner of the Euro Cup on Nov. 25 and Iran on Nov. 29.
