England vs USA Bet Builder Tips: Friday, November, 25th

There were some huge shocks in the opening round of games in the 2022 World Cup and I have pored over the stats to bring you my England vs USA bet builder tips. The Al Bayt Stadium plays host as the Three Lions take on the Stars and Stripes in both sides’ second game of Group B.

England vs USA Preview

World Cup Group B, Friday, November 25th, 19:00 (UK)

England’s 6-2 thrashing of Iran on Monday would have had pubs up and down the land reverberating to the sound of Baddiel and Skinner. All the pre-match talk was of pressure on Gareth Southgate and a call for him to play a more expansive style. To release the shackles from the flair players in his squad. The dominant display in Doha was the perfect response.

As a result, Southgate overtook Sir Alf Ramsey as the manager with the most wins at major tournaments in charge of the Three Lions. Although obviously pleased with the start, the manager insisted his side need to be better. The good news continued off the pitch on Wednesday. A scan of Harry Kane’s injured ankle revealed no significant damage with the captain expected to declare himself fit for this clash.

USA produced a poster campaign for the old cliche “a game of two halves” in their 1-1 draw with Wales. A first-half display saw Gregg Berhalter’s side have 67% of the ball. Their intensity and pressing paid dividends when Timothy Weah produced a brilliant finish with the outside of his foot. The second 45 minutes saw America completely lose the initiative with Wales deservedly snatching a draw via Gareth Bale’s penalty.

England vs USA Stats & Facts

  • This is the third meeting between England and USA at the FIFA World Cup, with the United States winning 1-0 in 1950 before a 1-1 draw in 2010.
  • Following their 6-2 victory over Iran on MD1, England are looking to win their opening two games at the World Cup for the fourth time, also doing so in 1982, 2006 and 2018. Their second game at the 2018 edition saw them win 6-1 against Panama.
  • USA have played more games at the World Cup without ever having a goalless draw than any other side (34), while England have had more games finish 0-0 than any other nation (11).
  • Timothy Weah has scored two goals in his last four games for USA in all competitions, as many as he had in his first 22 appearances for his country. He’s looking to become just the third player to score in both of USA’s first two games at a World Cup, after Bert Patenaude (1930) and Clint Dempsey (2014).

England impressed on MD1. Not just the result, although a 6-2 scoreline always catches the eye. Moreso the manner in which they went about their work. High-intensity football which was maintained for the 90 minutes – and 30 minutes of injury time!

Jude Bellingham was excellent while Bukayo Saka arguably edged the player of the match award following his brace. Substitutes continued the good work, not letting the tempo drop and playing to catch the manager’s eye.

One of the key components of Russia 2018 was their threat from set pieces. That area of play once again looked on point. This was no gimme. Iran were expected to be tough opponents. Hard to break down and resilient. But England never looked like recording anything other than a comfortable victory. Tournament football looks to have brought the best out of Gareth Southgate and his team once again.

Victory against the US will secure the Three Lions a place in the knockout stage. An opportunity I expect them to grab with both hands. USMNT haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 18 World Cup matches against European nations conceding 32 times. Their last shutout against England was in 1950. In all competitions, England have won eight of their 11 meetings with the USA. Their last defeat against them came in June 1993, winning four and drawing one of their clashes since then.

Southgate must have been delighted to see his team pass Iran off the park on Monday. They completed 716 passes in the 6-2 win, their most on record in a World Cup match since 1966. But it was passing with purpose and not just for the sake of it. This was evident in their sixth goal. Jack Grealish provided the finishing touch to a 35-pass move involving all 11 players. Again the most by any nation on record since 1966.

So with the ability to get a passing angle on side in this builder, one leaps off the page to really boost our odds to a tasty looking 11.00. Of those 716 passes, John Stones was responsible for 116 (16%). Also the most by an England player in a World Cup game since 1966. I have taken the highest line available of over 89.5 passes which also means those a little more risk-averse can lower this line to suit your taste.

  • England to win
  • John Stones over 89.5 passes

Bet Builder odds: 11.00 (TRACKED TIP)

  • Stakes: 5/10
