England vs USA preview
England fans had the perfect start to the World Cup by thrashing Iran 6-2 after a disappointing winless UEFA Nations League campaign.
Gareth Southgate’s men will probably go into the match against the USMNT with a boost of confidence after their stellar performance and will try to win their opening two group matches at the World Cup for a fourth time.
The Three Lions have a favorable head-to-head with the USA, as they have defeated the Americans in eight of their 11 meetings across all competitions.
The USMNT, who missed the World Cup four years ago, will be aiming to get a positive result against Harry Kane and co., especially after their 1-1 draw against Wales.
The USA managed to progress from the group stage at their previous two World Cup appearances in 2014 and 2010.
Harry Kane will be able to play against the USA after it has been revealed he has not suffered a serious injury to his ankle following a scan on Wednesday.
Harry Maguire seems fit and recovered from illness so he is also expected to be in the starting XI, while Kyle Walker won’t probably feature from the start, although he has admitted he’s ready to play after his groin surgery.
James Maddison remains on a personal training programme and won’t play against Berhalter’s squad. He could also miss the final group match against Wales.
Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah seem recovered from their respective groin and toe issues and should be fit to feature from the start alongside Tyler Adams.
Christian Pulisic will keep his spot up front probably alongside Timothy Weah and Joshua Sargent, although it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Giovanni Reyna in the starting XI.
England vs. USA prediction
England will face a USA squad that wants to prove to everybody they can do big things in the World Cup.
Gregg Berhalter’s men are aware that a positive result vs. the English nation would get them closer to one of the tickets to the round of 16 and after having witnessed such shocking upsets over the last few days, the USA will have one more reason to believe.
However, England have proved to be a top-level squad and certainly one of the favorites to go all the way in the tournament.
If they manage to keep euphoria in check after their first game and their key players are fully focused, the Three Lions should be too fierce for Berhalter’s team.
Prediction: England 3-1 USA
