can win the ball and find space behind them. This U. midfield is built to get vertical quickly when they win the ball. They regularly did so against Wales. They just have to be sharper and more ruthless in the final third on Friday than they were on Monday.

Kane, England’s captain, is poised to lead the line despite having a scan on his right ankle following a challenge during the Iran game. The 29-year-old was able to train with his team-mates on Wednesday and Southgate subsequently declared the Tottenham Hotspur forward was available for Friday’s encounter. Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is also set to retain his place in England’s starting XI, for what will be his 50th international appearance. There had been some question marks over the 29-year-old’s participation after he was replaced in the second half of the Iran win after complaining of illness. Maguire, however, made clear he was fit to play against the USMNT in a press conference on Thursday.
“Tomorrow's game will be very different to the first match. They are a team that press the ball really well, ” he said. “With respect, a level of player which has experience of playing in top European leagues. In terms of tomorrow it is not going to be a game in the pattern of the previous one. ”Luke Brown·Managing Editor, NewsNovember 24, 2022 at 11:43 AM ESTSouthgate on the heatSouthgate is now talking about the weather in Qatar. There has been a lot of discussion in England about whether the hot temperatures could negatively impact the national team’s chances. “There has been a lot of discussion about it being an advantage for us, but we never really bought into that theory, ” he said.
Live build-up to England vs the USMNTNovember 24, 2022 at 2:51 PM ESTEngland team newsEngland manager Gareth Southgate is set to name an unchanged line-up for the World Cup game against the United States on Friday, with Harry Kane fit to start. Southgate decided to hand Bukayo Saka and Jude Bellingham their first World Cup starts in England’s first match of the tournament, and was rewarded with a thrilling 6-2 victory over Iran. The pair both found the target — Bellingham opened the scoring before Saka struck twice — alongside Raheem Sterling and second-half substitutes Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish.
center back Tim Ream said on Monday night after the game. The U. cannot afford to be so wasteful against England. It’s unlikely they’ll get as many chances against the Group B favorites, but they should find some space in transition. England is going to push the game and open up; there will be moments when the U.
We counted at least eight transition moments in the second half in which the U. could have punished Wales. They not only failed to do so on each occasion, they didn’t even register a single shot on goal in those instances. This wasn’t a system failure. It was mostly poor execution in key moments. “We had our moments in transition, we had our moments, but the final pass in the final third just wasn’t quite there, ” U.
“If we are rushing to be seen to be doing something then we could make an error which doesn't land well. “We've got to be focused on the games. ”Luke Brown·Managing Editor, NewsNovember 24, 2022 at 11:16 AM ESTSouthgate on BerhalterGareth Southgate on facing USA manager Gregg Berhalter: “Everybody knows how it works in football. You compete against each other - that is sport. “I have enjoyed interacting with Greg over the last few years and I have learned a lot from him. It is really interesting to see the USA team have progressed over his leadership. ”Luke Brown·Managing Editor, NewsNovember 24, 2022 at 11:14 AM ESTSouthgate faces the pressGareth Southgate's pre-match press conference is about to begin.
“He gets criticised daily, so if it's going to happen to him and the position I'm in playing for Manchester United, it's going to happen to each and every one of us. You've just got to work hard, go into training, do your best and that's all you can do. ”Luke Brown·Managing Editor, NewsNovember 24, 2022 at 11:24 AM ESTMaguire not impacted by criticism Maguire has said that he has not let vociferous criticism of his recent performances impact him ahead of this World Cup.
All of which, again, makes the fact that the U. only got one point on Monday even more dispiriting. A win would have put the team in excellent position to qualify for the knockout rounds; the draw means there’s a very real chance that the U. will have to win and get some help in the final set of Group B matches next Tuesday in order to advance. There are some lessons to take away from the 1-1 draw in the opener, but Friday’s match against England, which demolished Iran 6-2 on Monday, will be much different than Monday’s contest. Unlike Wales, England will likely control possession and dictate play.
men’s national team’s 1-1 draw with Wales left us feeling a little bit better than we initially did about how the Americans performed on Monday. Which made us feel a little bit worse about the result. had a chance to grab three critical points from their opening match in Qatar, but some wastefulness on the break and a big mistake in the back allowed Wales to steal a late equalizer. The Americans struggled to execute in the final third after they went up 1-0 in the 36th minute, failing to follow-up Tim Weah’s opener with a second goal that would’ve killed the game. They did repeatedly get themselves into decent positions, however, particularly in transition. That they didn’t score a second was more of a problem of execution than it was of decision-making.
That’s typical for this team. And while Wales certainly controlled more of the game in the second half than they did in the first, the U. still controlled the final 45. They didn’t have as much possession as they did in the first (66. 3 percent in the first compared to 49. 2 percent in the second, according to TruMedia), but, apart from a back-to-back sequence of dangerous headers shortly after the hour-mark, they didn’t allow Wales any clear cut opportunities. Wales’ substitute striker Kieffer Moore made a difference, but his impact probably wasn’t as dramatic as we thought immediately after the match.
“We have tried to psychologically refresh the players. Climate-wise we are fortunate we haven't got a 13:00 kick offs. “Now we go into the 10am kick-offs. I think the conditions have been beautiful for football. “You like those balmy nights where it is a nice temperature, the pitches have been fantastic. I am very happy in the environment we're playing in. ”Luke Brown·Managing Editor, NewsNovember 24, 2022 at 11:36 AM ESTSouthgate defends MaguireSouthgate has defended Maguire’s recent form. Which isn’t particularly surprising given that they’re sat next to one another. “We wanted to build our team on the capability of playing out from the back, Harry and John Stones have provided that incredible platform to build on, ” he said when asked about the Manchester United defender. “That is the start point.
