'Hey how's it going,' said McIlhenny, known for his role as Ronald 'Mac' McDonald on the American comedy series, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. 'I just wanted to say good luck. Not too much luck.

Wales will mark their return against the United States at 7pm, with around 3,000 fans having made the trip to Doha to support them at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. More than half of the travelling fans have taken over the four and a half star InterContinental Doha in Qatar as they wait for the match to kick off. Dozens of fans were pictured inside the hotel's La Parisienne bar this afternoon ahead of the match. Read the full story on MailOnline: Wales fans take over Qatar ahead of USA World Cup 2022 opener! More than 1,600 of the 3,000 Wales fans who have made the trip to Qatar packed into the InterContinental Doha in Qatar today as they prepared for their side's match against the US. Mail Online 16:56 Jack Grealish honours celebration promise to disabled fan after World Cup goal England's Jack Grealish kept his promise to a young fan after he marked his first World Cup goal with a special celebration. Grealish tapped home the Three Lions' final goal from close-range as they despatched Iran 6-2, marking the moment with a broad smile as he stretched his arms out to the side and rolled them in in waves. Far from being a flippant or spontaneous reaction, the Manchester City forward was keeping a pledge he made to 11-year-old Finlay, who has cerebral palsy. Finlay wrote to his favourite player earlier this year, referencing Grealish's close bond with sister Holly, who also has the condition. 'I wish there were more people in the world just like you who treat people with disabilities the same as anyone else,' Finlay wrote. Grealish followed up with a letter of his own and also made a surprise visit to meet Finlay in person at a football session run by the City In the Community programme. It was there that he pledged to dedicate his next goal to Finlay, who initially suggested the more challenging dance move 'the worm' before settling on the arm gesture Grealish recreated in Qatar. 'First of all I've got to try and score, then I'll do it for you, but I've only scored once this season,' Grealish said, in a video captured by the Premier League. 'I'll do it for you, I promise, next time I score.' 16:52 Wales fans look forward to first World Cup match since 1958 Welsh fans are looking forward to their first World Cup game in 64 years. Wales last played in a World Cup match against Brazil in 1958, where a single goal from Pele knocked them out of the Quarter-finals. The Welsh fans previously went 58 years without an appearance at any major tournament until they qualified for the Euros in 2016. Now captain Gareth Bale says he is ready to lead Wales to a 'massive piece of history' as they look to beat the US - who are three places above them in the world rankings.

Bellingham opened the scoring with his first England goal in the 35th minute and turned in a commanding display in midfield at just 19 years of age. Former England striker Alan Shearer hailed a 'really, really impressive' display from Gareth Southgate's side and singled out Bellingham for special recognition. 'The young boy, can we call him that? He's not really now, he's a man isn't he? Bellingham. Oh my word what a performance, incredible,' Shearer said on BBC One. 'It was a complete performance from a really exciting player. It was a special day for him and for England.' Fellow pundit Rio Ferdinand added: 'The authority he plays with out on the pitch goes well beyond his years. 'He's a fabulous footballer but delivering at a World Cup like that at that age... we talk about the great midfielders we've played with and we've seen in our generation, none of them were doing what he's doing at his age on this stage.' 16:16 England fans go wild celebrating Three Lions’ SIX goals against Iran in pubs across the country Breathless England supporters in pubs, fan parks and homes across the country went wild after the Three Lions romped to a stunning 6-2 victory in their opening World Cup clash against Iran.   Millions of fans have packed out pubs and fan parks across the country after booking the day off work or calling in sick - as the nation is grinding to a halt to watch the Gareth Southgate's men in action this afternoon. The 1pm kick-off left many England fans facing the prospect of not being able to watch the highly-anticipated game today, but much of the country's workforce is away from the office and instead glued to TV screens.  Some schools 'rearranged' or halted lessons altogether to allow pupils to watch the match, while traffic levels were down in several cities including London and Birmingham as employees still working chose to work from home. Up to 11 million people were expected to pull a sick day in order to watch the match, according to a YouGov poll, and fans have been pictured packing out pubs with a pint of beer in hand up and down the country.

'I'm a bit fed up with the end of it really,' Southgate said. 'To win by that margin, to play as we did for the majority of the game, I've got to be really happy. 'But we shouldn't be conceding two goals at that stage and we'll have to be right on our game against the (United) States. It's a great start but we're going to have to be better. 'It's a consequence of the scoreline a bit, we had 24 minutes of added time which is a long time to focus but we just lost concentration and when we play at a slower tempo we're not anywhere near as effective. 'I'm a miserable so and so, I should be more excited but I've got to keep the team on the right track and we will have to be better.' 15:47 Prince William wishes good luck to both Wales and England for World Cup Prince William wished England and Wales 'the very best of luck' ahead of their matches this afternoon after facing controversy over his support for the Three Lions team given his title.
