    • Definitely can see signs of something with how they play. Good on the ball, generally move the ball well. Just haven’t finished. This game could be tied or it could be 4-0 England. Funny how that works sometimes.

  1. Morning all. Moments away from kickoff from what should be an intriguing quarterfinal clash. U.S. has an extra day of rest while England is coming off a very hard-fought penalty kick win. Absence of England’s Jadon Sancho could be a big factor as well.
