PostHeaderIcon England vs USA tension building

I have to admit, I am very excited about this game. The USA probably have it easier going into the game as there is no pressure to win, in fact pretty much whatever the result (unless it’s 10-0) the USA should be OK. Whereas England, every expects them to win, anything less than a win will be viewed as failure.

The USA have some strong, skilled players now, with many of them playing in professional leagues outside the USA, so their skill level has come up a great deal, which is reflected in their 14th in the world rankings, With US training resources and their “lets go kick some butt” spirit they should never be underestimated.

For England, it will be a case of how well defense plays and if midfield can get it together. On paper England has one of the strongest midfields in the competition, but Lampard and Gerrard have never quite gelled playing together, perhaps now is the time. England often plays better when viewed as the underdog, as the English never wilt in the face of diversity spirit is even stronger than the US kick butt spirit.

Can’t wait till kick off, see you after! Come on England!
