Predictions?

Teenagers are so inconsistent therefore it's hard to predict but I'll play.

1-1 or 2-2 in regulation then penalty kicks.  No prediction yet on the winner (I'll come back and edit my answer after I review a few more game tapes).

1. England's offense is reduced by the departure of Sancho.  He was the focal point and opened space for others.   There is more pressure on the others.
2. USA midfield is undermanned and not comfortable under pressure (USA-Columbia).  England should have more of the possession.
3. USA midfield is capable of serving penetrating passes and attackers have speed.  England have shown they can be vulnerable to fast play in their defensive third.   I am not aware of USA injuries and their finishing is adequate. USA should score 1 or 2 goals. 
4. England will have more of the possession, although USA is not as organized as Japan in the defensive third (England-Japan), USA is not likely to commit individual defensive errors. Therefore the number of goals scored by England will be 1 or 2.

The question is who will win the PKs.  I saw the England-Japan shootout and looks like the England goal keeper could make a save if the kick is not well taken.   I need to find and review videos of USA penalty kicks to compare.

The US lost Blaine Ferri in the match against Columbia, he is out against England as far as I know.

Wooooaaah, lets not get too far ahead...[biggrin]
England are NOT Spain or Germany....

WHEN the rich asses of the English Premier League TRUST their world beaters to actually PLAY in their first teams, will these players progress faster to the full national team with the right experience.

Squads this good usually come along every 10-12 years.
Its more luck than actual coaching that has seen these age groups emerge at the same time

Through a coaching contact, I was able to go to Manchester last February for a week and split time between Manchester United and Manchester City's academy. We went one day to Liverpool's academy, but only got to speak to the coaching director for a few minutes, so I won't count that experience.

I saw the training sessions for a few age groups but remember the U18 teams for both and a league match with Manchester United's U18 team. We did have a conversation with Manchester United's Academy Director about the problem of getting the young players into the team when established player from another club can be brought and the expectations of being at the club to win and compete in both the league and Champions League.

I saw at least 4 players that represented England while I was in Manchester. I know for a fact that Manchester City really rates Phil Foden. I have seen him make the team for the earlier matches this season. It looks like Germany really has the better set up for getting young players on the field with the first team.
