England Women vs USA Women prediction & odds

Kick-off: 2000, 07/10/2022

Stadium: Wembley

TV: ITV

European champions England and World Cup holders USA will go head-to-head in an eagerly-awaited friendly in front of a sell-out crowd at Wembley.

The Lionesses have yet to lose under Sarina Wiegman, winning 20 of their 22 matches, while USA are on a 21-match unbeaten run and have won 13 straight.

A couple of key injuries will hurt the hosts, though, so we’re taking 17/10 for America to prevail for our first England Women vs USA Women prediction.

England’s Euro 2022 success took the women’s game to new heights, with over 87,000 at Wembley for the extra-time final win over Germany.

The Lionesses showed no signs of resting on their laurels when beating Austria 2-0 and Luxembourg 10-0 in World Cup qualifiers last month.

Chloe Kelly, who famously ripped off her shirt after grabbing the European Championship decider, missed those games but is back fit.

With the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand approaching, the 24-year-old said: “I want to experience that winning feeling even more.

“One medal around your neck is probably not enough because I just want to win.

“To do it with such a great bunch of girls, it makes you so much more hungrier to get back on the pitch.”

However, England’s preparations for facing the US have been hit by injuries, with captain Leah Williamson, fellow defender Lucy Parker and striker Alessia Russo missing.

With Ellen White and Jill Scott now retired, this could be a tough test, with the Lionesses having gone four meetings without beating America.

Looking at the 10/3 for the visitors to prevail by any one-goal margin.

USA women Odds

United States spent their summer winning the CONCACAF Championship in Mexico, with Canada edged out 1-0 in the final.

Preparations now begin for next summer’s World Cup Down Under, when they will be looking to complete a hat-trick of triumphs.

USA shaded England 2-1 in the 2019 semi-finals in France and prevailed 2-0 when they last met in the 2020 SheBelieves Cup.

Forward Alex Morgan will not be able to add to her 198 caps due to a knee injury and midfielder Taylor Kornieck misses out with an ankle problem.

However, Vlatko Andonovski has named a strong squad for this game and Monday’s trip to Spain.

“These are big tests for our team in front of crowds cheering against us and after long travel, but our players absolutely love games like these,” said the head coach.

“The group we are bringing to Europe includes players who have a lot of experience against top European teams and some that don’t, so these games are even more critical for our growth as our team.

“Our whole squad needs to get a clear picture of what these games are like, as we continue to prepare for the World Cup.”

The visitors have been ranked number one in the world since 2008, except for brief drops to second place in 2014 and 2017.

This game comes in between the end of the National Women’s Soccer League regular season and the start of the play-offs, so they will be battle hardened.

Most of the Lionesses have only just begun their new campaign, so we like a 2-1 away win at 19/2 as our final England Women vs USA Women prediction.
