Our prediction for this match:
Liberty Stadium will host Thursday’s friendly between Wales and United States of America. The Dragons did well to beat Bulgaria 1-0 in their last Nations League game without Gareth Bale in the starting XI. The Tottenham ace returns to contention for November fixtures, and, no doubt, he will be the man to watch in the home team. Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey, on the other hand, is sidelined with a thigh injury.
The Yankees, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, but it has to be noted that they have not been in action since February 2020. A lively contest is on the cards in South Wales, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Borussia Dortmund forward Gio Reyna, but fit-again Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic should pose a big threat for the opposition defenders as well.
Highlighted Player (Gareth Bale):
Gareth Bale is a Welsh footballer who plays for Real Madrid as a winger. “Bailo” was born in Cardiff on 16 July, 1989 and, as expected, he played for his home-town club Cardiff Civil Service at the start of his youth career. He moved to Southampton’s football academy in 1999 and he made a great progress during his spell with the Saints.
Bale made 40 league appearances for the first team and it has to be noted that he played as a full back at the start of his senior career. In 2007 he signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur and he was producing thrilling performances with the White Hart Lane outfit from 2007 to 2013. Real Madrid chiefs did well to sign him on 1 September, 2013 for a fee of €91 million.
The Welsh winger won two Champions League trophies with los Blancos (2013/2014, 2015/2016) and, speaking of his international career, he made it to the European Championship finals with Wales. The Welsh ace scored three goals at the showpiece tournament in France as the Dragons reached the semi-final.
Highlighted Team (United States):
The United States Men’s National Soccer Team commonly referred to as the USMNT have been playing at the international level since 1916 and their debut 3-2 win at Sweden. The USMNT have first appeared at a FIFA World Cup in 1930 when they achieved their best ever result by reaching the semi-final of the competition and ultimately finishing third, which remains the joint highest finish of any team outside of the UEFA and CONMEBOL confederations.
Following the 1950 FIFA World Cup, the United States did not qualify for the tournament until 1990. The US also hosted the competition in 1994, going out to lose to Brazil in the round of 16. Hosts of the Copa America Centenario, the United States will try to record a noticeable result on home soil under the leadership of Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann.
The US have bright history in the century-old tournament and will hope to repeat the glorious 1995 run when they finished fourth.
