The USA soccer team has participated in ten FIFA World Cups, including the inaugural tournament in 1930, where they advanced to the semifinals and finished third behind Argentina and Uruguay. They qualified for the following five World Cups (seven consecutive appearances (1990-2014), a feat shared with only seven other teams). They emerged as one of the tournament's regular participants and frequently made it to the knockout stage. Strangely, the American men's national soccer squad has never claimed a World Cup victory. The team has never even made it to the championship finals.
Since the USA will be one of the three host nations in the 2026 FIFA World Cup, along with Canada and Mexico, the US football team has been guaranteed a spot in the next tournament.

USA Soccer Team 2022 Captain: Christian Pulisic
Popularly known as "Captain America," Christian frequently plays for Chelsea. He became the youngest Chelsea player to score a hat-trick against Burnley at just 21. He will undoubtedly play a significant role in Chelsea's future aspirations. He started playing for the USA national team in 2016. On March 29, 2016, he made his debut for the USA. He has scored 21 goals in 51 appearances for the senior USA team. He scored the game-winning penalty in overtime to win the CONCACAF Nations League.
Although the United States national football team cannot be compared with some of the world's most famous national football teams, it is one of the world's oldest football teams. The team has never won a single FIFA trophy. They finished third in the 1930 tournament, their best performance to date.

Around ten days before the Americans' World Cup opener against Wales on November 21, U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter is anticipated to announce his official team. Naturally, the majority of the spots have been claimed. However, there is still time for a few surprises and room for players to come in and out of the starting lineup. The key players you should keep an eye on this season are listed below.
Christian Pulisic will lead the U.S. soccer players in this season's FIFA world cup. He has been listed among the best players to watch during the World Cup in Qatar. Pulisic adds a broad experience to the team, having appeared in the 90 Bundesliga and 72 Premier League.
Giovanni Reyna performs as a winger or attacking midfielder for Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and the U.S. team. Gio is one of the most exciting American players to watch and is the son of USMNT veteran Claudio Reyna. He is one of the final contenders for the Golden Boy award in 2022 and was listed in The Guardian's "Next Generation 2019."
Weston McKennie plays midfield for the U.S. national team and Serie A club Juventus. McKennie is a versatile player who can play a variety of midfield positions, primarily as a box-to-box or a deep-lying defensive midfielder. He is incredibly creative in the middle of the field and frequently stands out as the team's top player.
Fun88 predicted odd: +8000
Though England is the favorite, the Americans know their players and match up well against them. They won’t be in a shadow of fear at all; which might not have been the case had they drawn another Pot 1 side like Belgium or Brazil. Despite not making it in 2018, the United States team made it to Round 16 in 2010 and 2014. This year's World Cup will mark the first time since 2014 that the American team has qualified for the competition. The USA is going to the FIFA tournament this fall after losing to Costa Rica 2-0 on the final night of qualification. The team's disappointment in 2018, when they did not qualify for the tournament, drove their determination to earn a position in the 2022 tournament.
The US football team's form is excellent this season in the World Cup. They have scored a total of 18 goals. There have been 5 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses. Our experts at Fun88 think that the USA's chances of making it to the knockout stage at the 2022 World Cup are good. Given their determination to win and current form, they can win Group B.
