England v USA Prediction: World Cup Match on 25.11.2022

November 23, 2022 by No Comments

There were worries from fans that England wasn’t ready for this World Cup, and the delay had done Southgate’s team no favours whatsoever. They were poor in the UEFA Nations League earlier this year when suffering the embarrassment of relegation to Group B, leading some critics to call for the head of Southgate and replace him in time to save England’s chances of glory in Qatar. But the team was handed a comfortable opening match against Iran, and they were expected to win with plenty to spare. Anything less than a convincing victory would’ve heaped more pressure on the manager and some of his stars.

The World Cup has gone full circle as we head into matchday two. England faces the USA in one of the most eagerly anticipated and exciting fixtures of the group stages, and it’s anyone’s guess which side will win this. England is the obvious pick due to their experience at this level, the talent at Gareth Southgate’s disposal, and the backing of a passionate and supportive crowd. This USA team will know they are underdogs to win this match, but head in with confidence, understanding that there are still a few question marks hanging over their opponent’s defence.
The win was convincing, and there were several positives to take from the match, including the brilliant performance from Saka that was rewarded by his two goals. He has a big future ahead of him, as does Bellingham, who showed a willingness to run at defenders, take players on and either take a shot at goal or provide an assist for a teammate. Surprisingly, Harry Kane wasn’t among the goals, but he must love playing alongside Bellingham with the inch-perfect deliveries he sends into the danger area. The young attacker will be asked to go and do the same again versus the USA.

England v USA prediction

The stats sheet shows England and the USA have met 11 times previously, with the current head-to-head stats showing eight wins for England, two for the USA, and one for one draw. Team America hasn’t beaten the Three Lions in almost thirty years, and that will be playing on the minds of their fans. Records are there to be broken, as the old football adage reminds us. Still, the USA comes up against a strong England side that is one of the favourites to win the competition for the second time in its history after securing glory in 1966.

Which side will come out on top and claim all three points to go top of Group B? We will find out from 19:00 GMT when the pair clash live on television. England started as the pool leaders with a healthy goal difference after battering Iran last Monday. That 6-2 victory sent them into pole position, and the players know that back-to-back wins would see them secure a place in the next round. They may do that as group winners or runners-up, but this is a win-at-all-costs fixture. A defeat for either side would damage their chances of playing knockout football.
As mentioned earlier, the head-to-head holds no secrets or surprises, with England dominant over the years. There is a generation of American players and fans that have never seen their team beat England, but will that change on Tuesday? On paper, this looks to be a classic 50/50, and a strong case could be made for either side. But England, at their best, should have enough class to win the game.
They started against Wales and scored the opening goal of that game, with Weah finding the net early. That gave the team confidence and rocked the Welsh, but they were back and eventually got level thanks to a late penalty from Gareth Bale, the ex-Real Madrid and Tottenham player. Fans would have viewed Monday’s match as two points dropped rather than one collected, and that’s a fair review of the match. It was there to be won with the USA in control for almost 90+ minutes, but eventually lost their focus and conceded late.
