World Cup 2022 – USA meets Wales
Who will win the hot game – USA or Wales?
Two sides who are expected to battle it out for a place in the last 16 of the World Cup in Group B go head-to-head on Monday as United States take on Wales.
With England the favourites to win the group, Wales will be looking to follow their neighbours into the knockout stage. However, they must at least avoid defeat in their first game against to have a strong chance of doing so.
But United States will also have the same goal in mind and will prove to be tricky opponents for the Dragons, who are back on the World Cup stage after failing to qualify for Russia four years ago.
USA vs Wales lineups and team news
USA XI: Turner, Dest, Zimmerman, Adams, Robinson, Musah, McKennie, Pulisic, Ream, Weah, Sargent.
Wales XI: Hennessey, Mepham, Rodon, B Davies, Roberts, Ampadu, Ramsey, Wilson, N Williams, James, Bale.
USA vs Wales prediction
The United States are one of the teams heading into the tournament without a huge amount of positive energy, something which the Welsh team can tend to almost exclusively trade on.
Still, a nervy and edgy affair is most likely to start both teams’ campaign.
