USA look to shock England in opener
When England entered their first World Cup in 1950, they went down to a famous 1-0 defeat at the hands of the amateurs of USA in a match that became known as the ‘Miracle on Grass’.
• David James: I’m ready to play
• John Brewin on USA
• Alexi Lalas: USA can compete
• Carlisle: USA aim to banish demons
The game has come a long way in America since that match and, while most firmly expect an England victory in Rustenburg on Saturday, an upset would hardly be viewed as miraculous.
England have mixed feelings going into the 2010 tournament. While Fabio Capello has turned the team around following the failure to qualify for Euro 2008, winning all but one of his competitive matches, the disjointed performances in the warm-up games for South Africa have done little to inspire confidence.
USA, though, have also struggled to convince during their warm-up matches, and it is largely the memories of last year’s 2-0 victory over Spain in the Confederations Cup that will provide hope of a win in what represents a huge match for both countries.
«For the last six months, all we’ve seen is US-England, so if you’re a casual sports fan at home you might think this is the World Cup final,» USA star Landon Donovan said in his press conference ahead of the game. «We’re not like Brazil where if they don’t win the World Cup soccer is still the biggest thing in anyone’s mind, but this is a great opportunity to grow the sport.»
USA could adopt a 4-5-1 formation for the match with Jozy Altidore as a lone striker, with Japan enjoying success against England using the same formation as they dominated the midfield battle. With Donovan and Clint Dempsey out wide, the tactic would not be overly defensive.
England have largely used 4-4-2, and a change seems unlikely at this stage, but it was only when Joe Cole was brought on as a substitute against Japan that England were able to compete in the middle, so Capello’s hand may be forced.
USA coach Bob Bradley has said all 23 players in his squad are ready to play the full 90 minutes, although Oguchi Onyewu’s lack of match practice in recent months remains a concern. For England, Gareth Barry’s absence could prove problematic given the lack of an alternative holding midfielder in the squad.
England player in focus: Aaron Lennon. England’s right winger has often been central to hopes of unlocking opposition defences and, while Joe Cole should offer creativity from the left, Lennon could become the focus if his team struggle. He’ll come up against an experienced opponent in USA captain Carlos Bocanegra, the former Fulham man who now plays in Ligue 1 with Rennes, so Fabio Capello will hope the Tottenham man can rediscover his pre-injury form on the big stage.
USA player in focus: Landon Donovan. This pacy attacker is very much the star of the USA team and he can provide a real threat out wide, frequently swapping flanks with Fulham’s Clint Dempsey. The English defenders will be fully aware of his capabilities following his loan stint with Everton earlier this year, and Ashley Cole may be a little wary of facing the man whose tackle nearly ruled him out of the tournament. If Donovan gets a chance to play on the left flank, Glen Johnson will need to curtail his natural instinct to support the attack.
Key battle: Wayne Rooney v Oguchi Onyewu. Rooney finally ended an international goal drought with his strike in the warm-up match against Platinum Stars, but he may have the chance to really kick-start his England career on Saturday. USA centre back Onyewu, the former Newcastle loanee, joined AC Milan from Standard Liege last summer but made just one appearance in Serie A after suffering a knee injury on international duty. USA coach Bob Bradley believes Onyewu is fit to play the full 90 minutes but, as he has not appeared in any of the warm-up games, it is essential that he gets back up to speed from the off.
Trivia: England boss Fabio Capello gave USA coach Bob Bradley some help and insights into the world of management during his time at AC Milan in the 1990s.
Stats: Wayne Rooney was involved in more goals than any other player in Europe during the qualification campaign, with nine goals and five assists. USA have not kept a clean sheet in a World Cup finals match since beating England 1-0 in 1950.
Odds: England (1.50), the draw (4.20), USA (7.00) with Bet365. USA are 15.00 to win 1-0, which could be worth a flutter.
Prediction: USA showed they are capable of causing shocks in the Confederations Cup last year, and their experience in South Africa may give them an advantage in terms of adapting to the altitude. However, England are firm favourites for the match and should have enough to clinch a victory.

England Vs United States of America USA Teams Profile :
England :Group C
The Three Lions go into 2010 FIFA World Cup Finals hoping to add to their solitary World Cup trophy that was famously won by Alf Ramsey’s ‘Wingless Wonders’ in 1966, when England hosted the event.With Fabio Capello at the helm, England swept through the qualification matches for the Finals, winning all but one match along the way, which culminated in the Lions’ 5-1 win over old enemy Croatia, giving them a place in South Africa with two games to spare.
England is deep in all positions, particularly in the middle of the park, where Steven Gerrard and Frank Lamapard anchor a formidable midfield.
Chances for England to win fifa world cup 2010:
Stormed through qualification under Capello, whose winning pedigree in club football suggests a more ruthless and focused England are a good bet for at least a semi-final place. An easy draw threw up a straight-forward group but in the first knockout stage a showdown with Germany, Australia, Ghana or Serbia beckons.
USA :Group C
The United States, who had surprised everyone by reaching the finals of the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2009, easily topped their World Cup qualifying group in CONCACAF.The Stars and Stripes have qualified for five straight World Cup finals but had a dismal 2006 campaign in Germany to forget. USA finished with just a single point and bottom of their group that contained Italy, Czech Republic and Ghana.Despite that setback, USA still have a formidable squad led by the MLS MVP Landon Donovan, teammate of David Beckham at LA Galaxy. It will be a first World Cup final for coach Bob Bradley.
Chances for USA to win fifa world cup 2010:
Performed well in the Confederations Cup and Bradley’s side possess plenty of players with top-level experience in England and Germany. They would be disappointed not to make it to the last eight.
