As the first day of World Cup action nears a close, it’s clear that the tensions are high and the tournament will be an absolutely struggle for every squad.
But in Revolutionary War, Part Two, England and the United States are raring to destroy one another in a rivalry stretching over 200 years.
These two teams hate each other, and may have the most emotion-filled opening round game.
While neither team is a favorite to run the table for the championship, both have the weapons to make solid runs and contend.
But first, they have to face each other.
England may be favored to win the match, but the game will inevitably come down to whoever can put their top guys into favorable positions and build momentum.
These teams can maintain cushions pretty well, so quick, balanced starts will be key to their successes.
So who has the edge? Probably whichever squad with the better individual performances, since both teams have that talent to abuse the other.
