We are now in the thick of the Major League Soccer season as organisers aim to power through the fixture list in order to give the best players a break before heading to Qatar with Team USA for the FIFA World Cup. The sport’s biggest and best-loved tournament begins in November, with the final played just a week before Christmas. Will the US national team give their loyal support watching in Qatar and back home a gift that will last forever?

You can sign-up at an online sportsbook that is legal and licensed to trade in your region today and then start making your predictions on any or all upcoming soccer matches. The leading apps even offer new players a welcome bonus, and that in itself is something worth having. But would you use your promotion to back the USA to win the World Cup? There are more than a few diehard supporters that would, but you have options available.

Which side will win the World Cup, will the USA make it past the group stage, and what is the schedule to keep in mind when following the games? We aim to provide our readers with all the information they need to enjoy the 2022 FIFA World Cup – the first to be staged in the Arab World – and to make a smart call on which team will win or how far the USA will go before being sent home.

USA group schedule

The United States has been added to World Cup Group B, where England, Wales and Iran join them. Progressing from such a pool will be challenging, to say the least, but with two of the four teams due to progress to the next round, there’s no reason why fans can’t be confident.

England is the main danger, with the Three Lions chalked up as the most likely winner of the group, and it’s difficult to argue against that stance. If things go the way they are expected to, with no shocks or upsets, it looks like the USA will battle against Wales for that all-important runners-up spot, with most followers happy to write off Iran, although their players should take to the conditions a little better than most.

Team USA is an improving side that has come on leaps and bounds over the last few years as more players are drawn to soccer over sports like American football, baseball and basketball. Soccer will never be quite as big as those sports in the US, but the game is certainly moving in the right direction, and fans would note it as a disappointment if their nation were to bow out after only three games.

Pundits’ Picks

The leading pundits, ex-players and Vegas traders have had their say on how this group should play out as well as their favourites to win the World Cup. England stands apart as the country to beat in the group, and Gareth Southgate’s side is amongst the early front-runners to kick off the play as favourites. It’s easy to see why the World Cup 1966 winners would be popular, although they have been poor of late, suffering some surprise defeats and dropping points in the UEFA Nations League.

Brazil is the team that has attracted the most support from those acting early and making their outright picks. The Samba Boys are a supremely talented team and hold the record for most World Cups won, but it’s been a while. France is the current holder, having won in Russia four years ago, and Les Bleus are a great side with a decent chance of successfully defending their prize.

Watching the action

All the play from the World Cup – between November and December – will be shown on television and live streaming sites with audio coverage on radio. This will be the most-watched competition of its kind, with people from across the globe able to follow their favourite teams and players for the first time.

Improvements in the technology used on live streaming apps are behind this, allowing registered members to download the app and watch games for free on a smartphone or desktop computer. You will never miss the chance to cheer on Team USA again.
