This was a game that went according to the script for the Americans’ first opponents in the World Cup – and their biggest rival – today at Wembley
As usual England didn’t play their best, but still won, while brittle Mexico started brightly, but faded when their first half efforts were not justly rewarded. In the end the scoreline could have been even greater, with England seeing a potential fourth goal cleared off the line.
U.S. Coach Bob Bradley will no doubt have nightmares about Wayne Rooney’s pace (if he hasn’t already), will wring his hands he doesn’t have an explosive midfielder to match Theo Walcott and wish the U.S. possessed a defender with the shooting prowess of Glen Johnson.
