Antonee Robinson says her USA team can WIN the World Cup in Qatar and reminds her teammates of England’s uneven form in the Nations League this year, where they lost 4-0 to HUNGARY, to inspire them ahead of the vital Group B clash.
If any of the USMNT crew need additional inspiration ahead of Friday’s game against England, they should speak to Antonee Robinson.
The Fulham defender has stoked the fires on the eve of his team USA’s World Cup tie with England and told them that not only can they make an impact against Gareth Southgate’s side, but they can also go on and win the whole tournament in Qatar.
‘Yes. Everyone on our team believes that we can beat any team in our day, so why not think that we can get out of this group and then go and win every single-elimination match? robinson said The times.
Antonee Robinson is confident before the USA vs. England World Cup match
He believes his team is good enough to beat England and go on to win the World Cup.
But first, the USA needs a result against England, unsurprisingly, the defender who plays club soccer for Fulham in the English Premier League is sure.
Robinson’s inspiration, he says, comes from England’s poor form in Europe’s Nations League this year, failing to win in six games.
On top of that, England failed to beat Italy in two games and lost twice to Hungary: in one game they were beaten 4-0. Both Hungary and Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup.
Robinson said: ‘We are definitely an underdog. Our group is quite tough, but we have to think that we can pass and we have to want it more than anyone.
“I remember the day after I drew a headline in one of the English newspapers: ‘England have the easiest group’ and all it’s going to do is turn us and Wales on.” You think you’re just gonna come and get a win? It never goes like this.

But they looked ominous in their first World Cup match, beating Iran 6-2 in Qatar.
“You saw what happened in the Nations League, England lost to teams who thought they would come out and win.”
Robinson earned his 30th cap for the USA in a 1-1 draw against Wales in Pool B on Monday.
Meanwhile, England seemed to have returned to their best form with an impressive 6-2 win over Iran.
