Sport Arena makes its prediction for the match of the second round of the group stage England – USA
Matches of the first round in group B at the World Cup in Qatar showed an approximate alignment of forces: the England team confirmed the status of the quartet favorite, the teams of the USA and Wales will play the second ticket to the playoffs of the tournament, but Iran will be the supplier of points for their rivals. Therefore, the match of the second round between the British and the Americans will be central in this group and a positive result will definitely help the winner of the game in the tournament plan.
The England team scored six goals against Iran in the first round of the World Cup, but at the end of the game they still conceded two goals into their own net. Gareth Southgate’s team have shown excellent performance and a good game in attack, despite the level of their opponents, but still the quality of football played by the Three Lions is still far from ideal. In addition, the British clearly need to improve the game in defense.
In the first leg, Southgate gave many players the chance to shine, including goals from Marcus Rushford and Jack Grealish, who came on from the bench. In the second round match, the England coach is unlikely to experiment with the squad, which means he must trust the proven performers who played from the first minutes in the match with Iran.
The American team came close to starting the World Cup in Qatar with a winning record but still conceded at the end of the match against Wales. In general, the US team showed a decent level of play and outperformed their opponent for most of the match, but managed to take only one point.
In the match against England, Gregg Berhalter’s wards will need to cling to some points, despite the fact that they will be the underdog of the confrontation. The US team will probably bet on the game with the second number, but such a strategy may well bring them a positive result.
- the rivals have met twice in their history at the world championships: in 1950, the United States beat America with a score of 1: 0, and in 2010 the teams tied – 1: 1
- the teams last met in a friendly match in 2018: England defeated the United States 3-0
- England ended their six-game streak without a win against Iran.
- The US team has not won four games in a row at various levels.
