Reason for USA vs Wales Predictions
USA’s qualification campaign won’t have had the British nations quaking in their boots, taking the third and final qualification spot on goal difference from Costa Rica. Still, they have a talented midfield which includes Leeds duo Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams, plus Juventus star Weston McKennie. Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic will be one of the main attacking threats available to head coach Gregg Berhalter, whose preparations for the World Cup have been mediocre. Draws with El Salvador and Saudi Arabia on either side of a 2-0 defeat by Japan mean they have won just one of their last five games, a 5-0 victory against Grenada. The teams have met just twice before, with USA winning the first of the two friendlies 2-0 in 2003, and they shared an uninspiring goalless draw in Swansea two years ago. DeAndre Yedlin is the only USA player with World Cup experience and is part of a youthful squad missing Miles Robinson with a torn Achilles, so Tim Ream could accompany Fulham team-mate Antonee Robinson in a back four. Tyler Adams shows talent, he has excellent ball control and can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Christian Pulisic is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Wales starts its campaign having been relegated from the top tier of the Nations League group, like England, but took just one point from their six games against the Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland. Nothing could dampen the memory of their World Cup qualifying campaign, though, which saw Gareth Bale strike twice in a 2-1 semi-final play-off victory against Austria, and ten weeks later, the former Real Madrid star was awarded the winner in a 1-0 win against Ukraine. Although it’s been an age since the Dragons made it to the World Cup finals, they reached the semi-finals at Euro 2016, finishing above England in the group and beating Belgium in the last eight, and made it to the knockout stage at Euro 2020 last summer. The biggest cause of concern for Page is the fitness of Joe Allen, who is in the squad despite not playing since September. Gareth Bale is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
There are no favorites in this match, and we won’t be surprised if this clash could end in a draw.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams.
