England v USA Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
England have not seen a win in all competitions until their World Cup opener, where they beat Iran in Group B. Meanwhile, the USA have also had a modest record heading into the tournament, wherein they had to settle for a draw against Wales. Let’s now discuss each side in detail.
England v USA Prediction – Preview
England currently lead Group B with 3 points, being the only side to win on opening day. They thrashed Iran 6-2 in the opener at the Khalifa International Stadium. Jude Bellingham opened the scoring on 35 minutes with his first-ever international goal, and Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling each netted to put The Three Lions ahead 3-0 at the break. Saka made it a double on 62 minutes with a superb curl, and three minutes later Mehdi Taremi pulled one back for Team Melli. But the English never looked back as Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish added on to the score, with Taremi converting from the spot as a consolation. The Gareth Southgate-managed side proved their worth by beating the highest-ranked Asian team, but have suffered some setbacks with players like Harry Kane and Harry Maguire incurring injuries. Also, they have to be wary of the USA, who despite being held to a draw in the opener is capable of many a surprise.
United States of America
The USA are currently third in Group B after drawing with Wales 1-1 at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium. The Stars and Stripes were the aggressors early on, and their efforts paid off when Timothy Weah slid the ball home on 36 minutes to open the scoring. After the break, however, they were outplayed by the Dragons, and when Walker Zimmerman‘s sliding tackle took down Gareth Bale, the former Real Madrid star levelled from the spot. Manager Gregg Berhalter, who was frustrated with the outcome, maintained that his men gave their all in the match. However, all’s history and they now have forward to a tough England side. Will history be on the Yanks’ side again and keep their unbeaten record against The Three Lions in the World Cup?

England v USA Prediction – Final Thoughts
With the long history between these nations, compounded with England’s failure to win against the USA since 1950 in the tournament, sports fans will be tuning in to this match. But if the openers are to be considered, The Three Lions appear more confident despite the possibly not having their top striker and defender. And while the Yanks are worthy contenders with Weah, Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Sergino Dest in the lineup, they will be outmatched by their cousins across the pond. Thus, another English victory is in the books. With that, let’s take a look at our prediction.
