USA vs England storylines
USA: Everything U.S. supporters dreamed of came to fruition in the first half against Wales. Berhalter Ball was on show with the team moving the ball around with precision and purpose, resulting in a 1-0 halftime advantage. There was a sharp drop-off in the second as Wales came out to play, the U.S. started failing across the board and the Dragons got a deserved equalizer.
Berhalter now must solve for a number of things. Does Josh Sargent again lead the line after failing to find much joy against Wales? How will the midfield be setup after Weston McKennie failed to show his best in the opener and with England posing an entirely different threat? When will Gio Reyna emerge from his protective bubble?
England: England was so dominate against Iran that Raheem Sterling, Bukayo Saka, Mason Mount and Harry Kane were all withdrawn with 20 minutes still to play (although their replacements are nothing to scoff at). Although Iran scored twice, the second was a nonsense penalty deep in garbage time and the team got great performances from its fullbacks and the much maligned Harry Maguire (although he limped off and was replaced by Eric Dier).
Victory is crucial here with Wales expected to beat Iran because England could then go into the final match against the Dragons knowing that a win or draw would secure top spot in Group B.
USA vs England prediction
The United States is trying to look a lot like this England side by the time it's hosting the World Cup in 2026. The U.S. loves playing the role of underdog with their backs against the wall, so expect a spirited display from the overmatched Americans.
Will it be enough for a historic win or a draw that feels like a win? No, but a one-goal defeat keeps the U.S. very much alive heading into the final match.
