This is a tough but winnable match for the United States. Both teams have a good defense. Both teams have solid goalies. Both teams are undefeated coming into this match. The United States is the underdog again. Just like in the England match. There is no room for mistakes on either side. I think it will be a low scoring affair with both teams fighting for every inch up the field. The United States is strongest on the counter attack. I expect that to be what to watch for the United States. I think they may let the game come to them and go from there.

Prediction: 1-1 or 0-0 with the USA winning on penalties

  • Game four
  • Round of 16
  • USA are the underdog
  • Netherlands are favored to win
  • A lot of pressure
  • Stong backfields
  • the counter-attack will be the big thing for the United States
  • Outwork
  • Win 50/50 balls
  • Win open balls
  • Show the world
