USA will be disappointed with their form in recent matches. They have managed two victories along with three draws and a defeat in their last six matches. USA were involved in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil however narrowly missed out on in Russia. Since then, the country has emerged through a revolution consisting of several world class youth players from all over European leagues. The USA national team is the favourite to advance from group B along with England.
Wales, too haven’t enjoyed the best of times recently. They have lost five and drawn just one of their last six outings. In fact since they beat Ukraine in the qualifying final, Wales are yet to taste victory. It will be a special occasion for the Welsh as they enter only their second ever World Cup finals. They have been handed out a tough group with their rivals England in it too. However, the Gareth Bale led side has often showed that they are capable of beating the big guns and will believe in themselves to repeat that again.
Both the coaches will be looking to start the World Cup with their best squads to earn that all important win. For USA, the strength lies in their attack consisting of Christian Pulisic, Giovanni Reyna, Jesus Ferreira. Wales will miss the services of Rhys Norrington-Davies who has been ruled out of the tournament.
USA possible line-up: Turner, Dest, Zimmerman, Long, Robinson, Aaronson, Adams, McKennie, Reyna, Ferreira, Pulisic
Wales possible line-up: Hennessey, Ampadu, Rodon, Davies, Roberts, Allen, Ramsey, Williams, James, Bale, Moore
