FIFA World Cup

England v USA

The superlatives have been thrown around like confetti since England’s impressive 6-2 demolition of Iran on Monday and justifiably so. Victory was always expected, of course, but the manner of their enterprising play would have satisfied Gareth Southgate immensely. Jude Bellingham was a revelation in midfield, as was Bukayo Saka, and with Sterling, Rashford and Grealish also scoring, it mattered to no-one except Harry Kane himself that the England captain failed to find the net in an impressive display.

England tournament odds: 13/2

USA will see their opening 1-1 draw with Wales as an opportunity missed, especially with how they could only convert their first-half domination into a one-goal advantage, thanks to a tidy finish from Timothy Weah . That narrow lead meant they were always under pressure after the break, as they struggled to cope with a change of Welsh tactics, and it came as little surprise that they eventually conceded an equaliser, albeit from the penalty spot.

USA tournament odds: 125/1

The USA defence is likely to be even more severely tested by England's lively fluidity in the final third, with chances of their own likely to be few and far between. However, England’s back line was far from watertight against Iran, and the likes of Weah and Christian Pulisic will be quick to exploit any defensive lapses. That said, England’s domination of possession should ensure that most of the telling action will be in the American defensive third, and they have should the quality to book their place in the knockout phase tonight.
