Team News


USA will have the best possible chance of starting off with a win as they do not have any major injury concerns. This suggests that all from the likes of Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams and Gio Reyna will make their World Cup debut. Luca de la Torre has been on the sidelines but is expected to be fit for this game. Matt Turner should be able to resume his duties as the goalkeeper, and Weston McKennie looks like the only doubtful starter.

Predicted Line-up:

Turner, Dest, Zimmerman, Long, Robinson, Musah, Adams, Acosta, Aaronson, Ferreira, Pulisic

Joe Allen last played a game for Swansea City in September but has gone on record saying that he should be fine for the mega-event. He could be in the starting XI too, if he clears the fitness test. No other major fitness issues plague Wales at the moment.

Predicted Line-up:

Hennessey, Ampadu, Rodon, Davies, Roberts, Ramsey, Allen, Williams, Bale, Johnson, James.

Score Prediction:



A look at the stats suggests that in terms of possession, they are not up there with some of the best teams in the World. That can come back to haunt them if they fail to up the notch in this tournament. Dan James and Garthe Bale are too good players to miss out on exploiting that vulnerability and can hand Wales victory, in a huge boost to their qualification chances.
