USA vs Vietnam Group E Clash

A true David vs Goliath battle is upon us with USA facing underdogs Vietnam. The Yankees have the three points up for grabs, but will the Asian side prove the critics wrong? Let’s see.

Over 4.5 USA Goals

  • We expect to see five or even more goals by the USWNT if the past is any indication.
  • Just a few months ago, the US team scored nine in two games versus New Zealand.
  • Last year, when the team locked horns with Uzbekistan, fans saw the US is capable of scoring even nine in a single game.

Over 9.5 Corners

  • More often than not, the US takes part in games filled with corner kick opportunities.
  • The USWNT’s attacking prowess frequently produces not only goals but corners as well.
  • Vietnam will be on the defense on the 22nd of July and it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see the US hammering away and Vietnam’s defenders reflecting into corner kicks.

USA odds: -12500 – 98.0%

Draw odds: +1400 – 1.5%

Vietnam odds: +1850 – 0.5%

You’ve read correctly. The USA vs Vietnam odds don’t lie. USA are expected winners with a frightening 98.0% win probability ahead of Saturday’s World Cup showdown. Poor Vietnam stands a laughable 0.5% likelihood of scooping the three points against the top favorites to lift the World Cup trophy.

USA vs Vietnam Lineups & Team News

USA

With 34-year-old Alex Morgan among the starters, the US side can’t lose. No team in Women’s World Cup history managed to win three consecutive editions, but there’s a high chance for the US ladies to put their names in the history books this year. USWNT is a class above the key title rivals this year, and we should see USA top Group E with ease. It’s the bare minimum the US team is expected to achieve this year.

Predicted lineup – Naeher (GK), Fox, Cook, Girma, Dunn, Sullivan, Sanchez, Horan, Smith, Morgan & Thompson

Vietnam

After failing to qualify for the 2019 Women’s World Cup, Vietnam are back with a bang. Expecting them to win over title favorites USWNT is a bit of a stretch, but there are plenty of players that can make a difference for the Asian side, such as T. Nguyen and K. Tran. The bookies say Vietnam will have a hard time in Group E with the likes of the US, Portugal, and Netherlands, but we’ll have to wait and see if we’ll have an underdog story this year.

Predicted lineup – K. Tran (GK), T.T. Tran, Hoang, Luong, T.T.T. Tran, T. Nguyen, Huynh, Duong, N. Nguyen & Pham

Player to Watch: Alex Morgan

Hardly anyone can argue that Alex Morgan is one of the key players to watch this week. 34-year-old Morgan is nearing the end of her professional career, but not before one last dance.

We expect Alex Morgan to be leading the USWNT attack versus Vietnam and we believe she’ll definitely have her fair share of goalscoring opportunities over poor Vietnam. Alex Morgan has scored 121 goals in 207 official games for her country. Add to the equation her 2022 display with San Diego Wave, consisting of 20 goals in 28 league appearances, and you see why we have Alex under the spotlight this week.
