WHAT SORT OF OPPOSITION WILL USA PROVIDE?
The USA played a veritable game of two halves against Wales in their first group game on Monday.
In the first half Gregg Berhalter’s side were dynamic and dominant, with Wales barely able to get a sniff of an opportunity.
They got their deserved goal through Tim Weah’s smart finish, after he had been slid in by a terrific Pulisic pass.
But in the second-half it was all change, and vulnerabilities at centre-back were exposed as first Kieffer Moore came on to trouble them, and then Walker Zimmerman gave away a penalty with a clumsy tackle on Gareth Bale.
Bale stepped up to put the spot-kick away, and it was the USA who were holding on at the end.
Will they be suffering physically after that encounter? Gareth Southgate’s energetic England side, who coasted through their encounter with Iran and were able to rest players in the second half, will certainly put them to the test.
