World Cup: They may get shock – Rooney predicts England vs USA match

Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney, has predicted that England’s World Cup tie with the USA on Friday night will be tough.

Rooney believes the USA have a chance to shock England after seeing how both teams played in their first games against Wales and Iran, respectively.

Recall that England thrashed Iran 6-2 in their World Cup opener a few days ago, while the USA drew 1-1 with Wales.

“In the first half against Wales, the USA were excellent. They moved the ball quickly, they were aggressive and had a lot of energy in their game,” Rooney told The Times.

“I think here the Americans’ approach will be similar. They will be on the front foot and have a go at taking the game to England and it will be a completely different challenge from the one England faced against Iran. A tough game.

“England need to be at it, right from the start of the match, or they may get a shock.”

The kick-off time for the England vs USA match is 8 pm.
