Al Bayt Stadium, Qatar (Submitted) /
One more time, The United States played a game worthy of victory in the World Cup Qatar 2022However, the definition was not his best weapon and he had to settle for a 0-0 against the England teama result that leaves them with the future in their hands, but forced to win their last game in the Group Phase against Iran.
A point that tastes like “defeat” the one that the Concacaf team took from the field of the Al Bayt Stadium, because although England is powerful, the North Americans were better for most of the duel. Now you have no choice but add three against the Iranians to get into the Round of 16.
The triumph of the La Rosa team on the first day and the draw by the Americans caused the Europeans to give up control of the ball a bit. Playing with the rival’s need in a large part of the game, they dedicated themselves to defending and tried to do damage through counterattack plays, however, the strategy proposed by Gareth Southgate did not bear fruit.
It’s more, The formula of the British strategist put his team in trouble on several occasionswho suffered to keep his goal blank, especially the last half hour of the first half and the first 15 minutes of the complementary part.
You could say that United States forgavebecause in his best moments he could not project that domain on the scoreboard. McKennie missed with a solo shot inside the area and Pulisic crashed a shot off the crossbar. It seemed a matter of time before the Americans took the lead on the board.
For various moments in the game, the English couldn’t even cross midfield. It wasn’t until minute 70 that Southgate sent Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish onto the field. With them he managed to balance the balance a bit, and although they did not generate dangerous plays, they did have more possession of the ball and stopped the rival offense sharply.
With unit division, England reached four and will close the Group Stage facing Waleswhile those of The Stars and Stripes will play their pass to the Eighths against the Iran National Teamwho this Friday took the victory over the Welsh, so a win or even a draw would put them into the next round.
