My theory regarding tonight's England-USA game
USA are the toughest opponent in England's group and nowhere near as weak as they used to be - they beat Spain last year etc.
But being quick, strong and aggressive, while shaky at the back and short on technique, they look like a typical mid-table Premier League side.
In other words, they play the kind of football that this England side knows best. As good as the US team may be, it's generally Latin teams and their impertinent emphasis on ball retention that England are completely hapless against.
