England vs USA prediction, betting tips & odds


Kick-off: 1900, 25/11/2022

Stadium: Al Bayt Stadium


England will aim to build on an encouraging start to Group B when they seek a first World Cup win against the United States at the third attempt.

The Three Lions hit Iran for six in their opening game and should have the firepower to secure another routine victory.

Previous results between these two nations can ensure there is no complacency and an England win with over 2.5 total goals is our opening England vs USA prediction at 29/20.

England Odds

England made light work of a challenging build-up and normally obdurate opponents Iran as they ran amok 6-2 on Monday.

Bukayo Saka’s brace was complemented by goals from Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish, with Mehdi Taremi grabbing two consolation efforts.

It was England’s biggest win in an opening match at a major tournament and just the second time they had hit a side for six on such a stage.

“By the end we looked sloppy but just before the end we were pretty good,” said boss Gareth Southgate.

“I’ve said to them I’ve got to try and balance how I feel because we’ve played so well and we’ve dominated the game and there were so many good performances.

“Equally we can’t be conceding two goals in the manner we did, so we will really have to reset.

“I understood the game went on – I think we had 25 minutes of injury time across the course of the game – so I can understand why the focus might drift.

“But we’re going to have to be so on it against the States. Yeah, it is a good start but we’ve got other levels we need to get to.”

England have now conceded 10 goals in their last four games and the switch to a back four means more attacking players on the pitch.

That suggests a win and both teams to score is a decent option at 13/5 in the England vs USA odds.

United States Odds

USA face British opposition for the second successive game after being held to a 1-1 draw by Wales on Monday night.

Timothy Weah put the Americans ahead with a clinical strike in the 36th minute and it was no less than they deserved after dominating the first half.

They struggled after the half-time introduction of Wales striker Kieffer Moore, though, and conceded an equaliser eight minutes from the end when Tim Ream fouled Gareth Bale in the area and the Wales captain converted the penalty.

United States coach Gregg Berhalter said: “I think we got hurt by some direct play from Wales and we fell short of the victory.

“It became problematic for us in the second half, they pinned us back. Wales didn’t create that many chances but they made it difficult for us to come out.”

USA held England to a 1-1 draw in the group stage in 2010 and famously won 1-0 at the 1950 World Cup but we cannot see history being repeated.

England’s strength in depth can see them dominate the latter stages and the Three Lions to win the second half by more than one goal at 16/5 completes our England vs USA betting tips.
