England will continue their 2022 World Cup campaign against the USA on Friday.
The Three Lions got their tournament in Qatar underway with a stunning win over Iran and will be eager to continue the momentum.
England face Wales in their final Group B game and would rather not need a win against their close neighbours to seal a spot in the last 16.
But the USA have several Premier League players and will pose a threat to Gareth Southgate’s side.

WHERE DO THE GOALS COME FROM?
Captain, striker and main man for England, the indomitable Harry Kane comes into this game under an injury cloud, but punters shouldn’t worry too much, as there is plenty of value on offer for goal scorers outside the Cap on this English squad.
Bukayo Saka started and scored a double against Iran and looks an attractive first goal scorer price at $7. Phil Foden, meanwhile, came on late in the piece in their first outing and is more than capable of scoring anytime at $3.40.
CAN THE USA KEEP UP?
The USA dominated Wales in the first half of their first group match, but couldn’t maintain that intensity going into the second frame. Christian Pulisic dominated early, yet lacked finishing touch late.
Punters will see the betting opportunity here in the ‘Over 1 goal in the first half’ market ($2.78) especially given how USA will attack and the fast start England had on Monday.
England also piled on three goals in the second half and with subs like Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish etc coming on late in the piece, England could really up their goal difference late. $2.10 for ‘Over 1 goal’ in the second half is fantastic play too, as the game should open up and USA likely won’t be able to keep up with England’s squad depth and talent.
THE BENCH TALENT
With England able to bring on players such as Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford, they can afford to put everything into getting an early margin on USA in the first half, then pushing the ‘go’ button yet again at the 60 minute mark and making good use of the five substitutions per game during this World Cup.
Punters will see the chance to take England Half Time/Full Time at $2.40 as being terrific value.
