The best picks for Round 2 of Big5 on Games


The Teacher says… 


My Pick 


Round 2: England (vs USA) 


England put their Nations League woes behind them on Monday by thrashing Iran 6-2, returning to their goalscoring ways.  


The top scorers from European qualifying got on the front foot early on and a repeat here should be good enough, especially with Harry Kane likely to play.  


USA failed to cope once Wales got their tactics right and started having a go – the Americans ended with a worrying expected goals-against (xGA) figure of 1.9. 


Potential Pick 


Round 2: Switzerland (vs Brazil) 


The Swiss conceded only two goals in qualifying – the best record in Europe – as they finished ahead of Italy, who they drew with twice. 


And they have a much longer track record of thwarting ‘big’ opposition too. They knocked France out of last year’s European Championships, while they defeated both Spain and Portugal in the recent Nations League.  


At the last World Cup they held Brazil to a draw and may repeat the trick here. 


Risky Pick 


Round 2: Argentina (vs Mexico)


Once Saudi Arabia ditched their high defensive line on Tuesday, Argentina lacked ideas in their shocking opener.


Mexico will have taken note – expect them to sit deep and try to thwart. They kept a clean sheet in eight of their 14 qualifiers so are defensively sound, as they showed during Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with Poland.


Take out the penalty (which they saved) and their xGA figure was just 0.3.
