So the US and England both played friendlies this weekend. The U.S. had a night-and-day performance across two halves against a respectable Turkish side in Philadelphia (Elevation 39 ft). The Yanks' defense was in tatters for the first half while their link-up play was bogged down with a 4-4-1-1 formation that seemed to confuse the midfielders more than anything. However, they managed to find a certain spark in the second half and managed to win 2-1 with two crisp goals. England, on the other hand, struggled to find their stride against a scrappy Japanese team at a friendly in Graz, Austria (Elevation 1158 ft). An early goal against the run of play by Japan combined with a tireless work ethic seemed to do nothing but frustrate the Three Lions who created few chances and who were wasteful with the chances they had. Japanese keeper Eiji Kawashima delivered crucial saves, including a Frank Lampard penalty in the second half. However, Lady Luck bailed the Three Lions out at the end of the day, with two own goals and a scoreline of 2-1 in England's favor. So what have we learned from these two games? What are the starting lineups likely to be when the Yanks meet the Lions on June 12 and how is the game likely to go? I still think it will be a 3-2 win for England, with the U.S. going on to take second place in the group, but what do you guys think?
