The United States comfortably beat Australia to claim the top spot in Group C at the International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) Men’s World Cup in Salou.

Both teams had already qualified for the quarter-finals with the group reduced to three teams following Russia’s suspension over the invasion of Ukraine.

Australia started well as Connor Bunce scored inside eight minutes, but this lead was short-lived as Shea Hammond equalised for the US a minute later at the Futbol Salou Field 6.

John Sullivan put the US into the lead seven minutes before the break.

Cameron DeLillo bagged a brace and Jonah Meyer-Crothers capped off a 5-1 American victory in added time.

The US are scheduled to meet The Netherlands in the next round after they drew 1-1 with England in Group A.

Bruno Hoek put the Dutch team in front before English captain Matthew Crossen levelled the score.

England’s two wins and a draw mean they are set to play Iran.

Canada are due to face Australia following a thrilling 3-3 draw versus Venezuela.

Roberth Chacon handed Venezuela the lead from the penalty spot on the 11th minute.

Samuel Charron equalised not long after and Diego Gilbert had seemingly given Canada a half-time lead.

However, Jose Luis Felipe Quintana responded in added time to leave it 2-2 at the break.

Charron restored Canada’s advantage before Enderson Enrrique Alvarez Artahona scored minutes before the final whistle to secure Venezuela's only point of the competition.

The quarter-finals are scheduled to take place on May 9 and 10.
