England vs USA Preview

After a dismal UEFA Nations League campaign, Gareth Southgate’s squad’s confidence had fallen traveling to Qatar. However, the Three Lions’ 6-2 success over Iran in their initial group encounter raised the nation’s aspirations.

In a strong first half, Bukayo Saka scored between Jude Bellingham and Raheem Sterling, while Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish scored after halftime. Southgate was “fed up” when Porto’s Mehdi Taremi scored two consolation goals for Iran, but he was pleased with his team’s performance in a match with nearly 30 minutes of stoppage time. Indeed, the England manager has urged his players to focus against a “full-throttle” USA team on Friday.

After beating Iran, England will face USA to win their first two World Cup group matches for the fourth time, following 1982, 2006, and 2018. Southgate’s team defeated Panama 6-1 in their second World Cup match, who missed out on a spot in Qatar after placing below USA in CONCACAF qualifying. England has won eight of their 11 meetings with USA in all competitions, scoring 39 goals, and they will want to add to this on Friday to go closer to the last 16.

USA started their campaign in Qatar with a 1-1 tie against Wales on Monday, leading until a Los Angeles FC star equalized. Timothy Weah gave the Stars and Stripes a deserved lead nine minutes before halftime, but as Gregg Berhalter’s side lost their spark in the second half, Wales stepped up and had their talisman Gareth Bale to thank for netting a crucial 82nd-minute equalizer from the penalty spot after Walker Zimmerman clumsily scythed down the LAFC forward inside the area.

The 49-year-old, who briefly played for Crystal Palace, believes his club “left everything out there” and hopes to reach the final rounds. USA advanced from the group stage at the last two World Cups, finishing second behind Portugal in 2014 and first ahead of England in 2010. Indeed, a dramatic 1-1 tie in their penultimate meeting against the Three Lions, in which Robert Green fumbled a Clint Dempsey effort, helped the Americans finish above Fabio Capello’s men on goal difference.

The Stars and Stripes enter Friday’s match at the Al Bayt Stadium unbeaten in their last two World Cup matches against England, including a shock 1-0 group-stage win in 1950.

England vs USA Team News

England’s captain Harry Kane has trained with the first team after a scan on Wednesday showed no significant ankle damage. Harry Maguire, who has recovered from sickness, might start with Kieran Trippier, John Stones, and Luke Shaw.

After recuperating from groin surgery, Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has proclaimed himself fit to play against USA and has trained, although he is set to come off the bench to develop match fitness. Due to a knee injury, James Maddison is doubtful for Friday’s match, with Bellingham, Declan Rice, and Mason Mount likely to start in center-midfield.

USA midfielders Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah left the match with Wales with groin and toe injuries, but they should be fine to play alongside captain Tyler Adams. Indeed, Adams is one of eight British-based club players in Berhalter’s roster, and he will start in front of a back four that includes Fulham’s Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson and Arsenal’s Matt Turner.

Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic, Timothy Weah, and Norwich City’s Joshua Sargent are anticipated to start, but Borussia Dortmund’s Giovanni Reyna will try to get a start after being an unused replacement last time. Brendan Aaronson of Leeds and Cameron Carter-Vickers of Celtic both started as replacements against Wales, with the former going on in the second half.

England vs USA Prediction

Southgate and co. are heavy favorites to win Friday’s match against the United States, despite the fact that England and the United States played to a scoreless tie the last time they met (12 years ago). While there have been some unexpected outcomes so far in Qatar, the Three Lions should have little trouble beating the United States in a very easy matchup at Al Khor.
