The Premier League propelled soccer to new heights in the U.S. and now England will face the USMNT in their second fixture at the 2022 Qatar World Cup
USMNT Captain Tyler Adams was only 13 years old when NBC got the media-rights holder for the Premier League in 2012. This sensationally led to the growth of the sport, known as soccer in the US, to great heights.
USA are looking to upset the Three Lions on Friday in their second group-stage fixture at the Al Bayt stadium, Al Khor. USA drew 1-1 with Wales on matchday one, whereas England had an emphatic win over Iran, on Monday.
Timothy Weah canceled out Gareth Bale’s goal in their USA vs Wales fixture while England scored against Iran through Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, and Marcus Rashford. Saka scored twice.
England has scored 39 goals in its eight victories over the USA in their eleven encounters across all competitions. A worrying stat for US coach Gregg Berhalter.
