USA vs Venezuela: Prediction
There is little resistance to expect from Venezuela as they have so far failed to come together as a team in recent months. The team also lack the quality in personals with Salomon Rondon being the only player capable of troubling the US defense.
The Stars and Stripes are coming on the back of good spirit and they will want to continue their unbeaten run under Bruce Arena with nothing less than a win here.
