USA VS WALES PREDICTION, TIME, WHERE TO WATCH, WHO WILL WIN THE FIRST MATCH IN GROUP B
The USMNT have returned to the biggest footballing stage after missing out in 2018. The CONCACAF champions secured automatic qualification to Qatar by a whisker, finishing above Costa Rica on goal difference.
On the other hand Wales qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1958 in what will only be their second-ever appearance at the grand stage.
The USMNT also elected not to play a warm-up friendly of the World Cup. Their last match was a goalless draw against Saudi Arabia in September 2022.
The two sides have clashed on two occasions in the past. The USMNT have 1 win to their name, while 1 game ended in a draw.
The USMNT are more experienced than Wales in terms of playing in World Cup but the USMNT have a relatively inexperienced side. Their charge will be led by Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic in what will be his first appearance at this stage.
The 24-year-old has been in Poor form at club level but his performance in international matches have been exceptional. Pulisic has scored 19 goal in his last 23 Matches and providing 7 assists.
On the other hand Wales, will be looking to mark their return to the big stage after a 74-year absence. Wales have had a golden run in the last few years and can cause trouble for teams in the tournament.
The two sides will battle it out to qualify for the knockout rounds alongside England and Iran in Group B. However England’s are favourites to top the group, the fight for second place in the group could be extremely close and neither side can afford to lose this crunch opener.
I am backing it will be a low-scoring draw.
Both sides have become heavily reliant on a few certain individuals to get them goals, meaning one piece of brilliance may be what decides the outcome tomorrow.
Prediction: USA 1-1 Wales
USA possible starting lineup (4:4:3) :
Turner, Dest, Zimmerman, Adams (C), A Robinson, Musah, McKennie, Ream, Weah, Pulisic, Sargent.
Wales possible starting lineup (3:4:2:1) :
