1 / 4 The USA’s men’s national team and its two opponents, the USA and England, will meet again in the USA cup on Saturday (Saturday NZT), with the winner getting a share of the championship.USA head coach Bob Bradley and his team have been enjoying a run of form and have won the last four matches in which they have faced England.
Bradley’s men are unbeaten in all competitions since their 2-0 victory over Japan in August, and will now face England, which have just two wins since September.
The USA won the first round of the tournament in 2012, and have gone through the qualification process to the final.
They won the 2014 World Cup with the U.S.
A, where they finished runner-up in their group.
They have also qualified for the 2019 World Cup in Russia and are in contention to make the final this summer, despite the absence of Clint Dempsey, who is on international duty with the Seattle Sounders.
England, meanwhile, won the inaugural World Cup last summer, and are currently chasing a fourth title in five years.
They will be looking to keep the streak alive after they beat Russia 2-1 in a shootout in front of 3,000 fans at Wembley Stadium last Friday.
They had been leading 2-2 with just over five minutes to go, when Jordan Henderson headed home a corner from a corner kick.
England’s goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was forced to save two penalties, but missed the third with his right leg, and was sent off for a late challenge on Dempsey.
The defeat was England’s sixth in the last seven games against the Americans, who were also drawn in the first-round of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
England will face Germany on Saturday.
