England v USA International Friendly Preview, 15th November 8.00pm
Even though this is an international friendly, really it is an international testimonial for Wayne Rooney and his charity. That has caused some controversy as he will come out of international retirement for this one, some critics saying that cheapens the awarding of England caps. Still, it is a work out which gives England the chance to look at players ahead of their final Nations League match against Croatia. Read our England v USA betting tips for more.

England News and Form
The Three Lions will get back to competitive action following this as they take on Croatia in their final Nations League fixture on November 18th, 2018. They pulled off a huge success as an underdog with a 3-2 win over Spain in their last game. The star of that show in a smash-and-grab success was Raheem Sterling who scored a brace. Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford has scored in three of England’s last four games. Across their last nine games played England have produced a W3 D3 L3 record so it has been far from consistent from them really.
The Three Lions have a clean sheet in two for their last three games and England to win to nil is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 12th, 2018 at 5:55 pm). The problem is that they have struggled to win games, succeeding in only two of their last six. In their five friendly matches played through 2018, it has been a good W4 D1 record from the Three Lions. However, they have not scored more than one goal in a friendly fixture this year.
This is pretty much just a testimonial for Wayne Rooney who comes out of international retirement. It is already known that he is going to come on a second-half sub. Rooney is at 10/11 to score in the game (betting odds taken on November 12th, 2018 at 5:55 pm). This will be England’s first game against the USA since they were held to a frustrating 1-1 tie against them in the group postage of the 2010 World Cup.
USA News and Form
The USA have produced a W1 D2 L3 record in their last six games and they were out in action last month in friendly action. They lost against Colombia and then were held to a draw by Peru. Across their last six games, the USA have managed only the one clean sheet. At the other end of the pitch, they have scored in five of their last six. Both teams to score is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 12th, 2018 at 5:55 pm). This will be their first overseas game since back in the summer.
On their last visit to England, the USA lost 2-0 in 2008 in a friendly and they have managed just a D1 L3 record in their last four fixtures against the Three Lions. The Americans have shipped exactly two goals in three of their last four fixtures against England. Bearing that in mind that from a betting perspective an England 2-0 correct score option is at the head of the correct score market at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 12th, 2018 at 5:55 pm).
Who will win – England v USA Predictions
The USA are not a team in any kind of form and this is likely to be a pretty dull affair as friendly games generally are. The home side should have the edge, especially with fringe players look to impress. England to win to nil is a good fit.
