USA v Wales Prediction – Head-to-Head
USA v Wales Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
The USA most recently competed in the CONCACAF Nations League and have had two friendlies, tallying an underwhelming record of one win, three draws and one loss. Wales, however, have fared worse, picking up one draw and four losses in the UEFA Nations League. Let’s now take a closer look at both sides.
USA v Wales Prediction – Preview
The United States of America
USA are looking to win their first ever World Cup, with their best result in the competition being third place at the inaugural 1930 edition. However, recent selections have left much to question, despite two huge wins in June over Morocco (3-0, friendly) and Grenada (5-0, CONCACAF Nations League). In Qatar, coach Gregg Berhalter will be overseeing a talent-filled squad composed of Christian Pulisic, Sergino Dest, Giovanni Reyna and Weston McKennie among others. Though not on the list of favourites, the Stars and Stripes are always seen as a dark horse who could go far in the competition. Will they, however, have enough to come out of a group composed of Iran, England, and their first opponent, Wales?
Wales will be participating in only their second World Cup in history, their first since 1958. The Dragons punched their ticket to the big event after narrowly edging out Ukraine last June, thanks to the lone goal by veteran Gareth Bale. The Welsh, however, have had the toughest of preparations in the UEFA Nations League, where they were unable to capture a win and went down in heartbreaking fashion in each match. For Qatar, head coach Rob Page will be overseeing a squad composed of big names such as Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Daniel James and Wayne Hennessey to name a few. They will have a tough first assignment with the Yanks, but Page has the options to go toe-to-toe with them.
USA v Wales Prediction – Final Thoughts
While the two countries are hardly favourites in the match, the collective talent of each side cancels each other out, making this an entertaining contest. There is a high possibility that this will end in a draw. But we will go with our gut and pick USA over Wales, because of the higher FIFA ranking and more balanced squad compared to the Bale-centred play of the Dragons. With that, let’s take a look at our prediction.
