Current Squad / Roster

It will be a big World Cup later in the year for the USA, as they look to improve on their best ever performance at the competition. With a young squad hungry for success, the USA World Cup hopes are high coming into Qatar in November. You can find out more about the USA stats and their FIFA World Cup Schedule here.

USA World Cup Future Odds

The USA World Cup odds currently have the nation at 100/1 to win the tournament for the first time. However, the primary aim for the team this fall will likely be to better their previous best appearance at the competition. Still, the odds see the USA as huge outsiders at 12/1 to reach the semi-finals, just as they did in 1930. Instead, a more realistic betting option may be the 1/1 for the USA to make it out of Group B.

FIFA World Cup USA’s Record

Historical Events

The USA looked to be one of the emerging soccer nations back when the first competition was held in 1930, as they made it all the way through to the semi-finals. Since then, they haven’t been able to reach the same stage. Their best showing since 1990 came as they reached the quarterfinals in the 2002 World Cup, as the USA finished eighth overall.

The USA stats showed that they won two games from five played, which matched their best-ever return at the competition from 1930. They have reached the round of 16 of the World Cup in two of the three previous competitions, most recently in 2014. However, the USA failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia for the first time since 1986.

Except for the 2018 World Cup disappointment, the USA has an excellent record of qualifying for the showpiece event on the soccer calendar. USA stats show that they have qualified for seven of the previous eight World Cups, and has successfully managed to qualify for the knockout stage on four occasions.

During this run, they have been eliminated at the round of 16 on three occasions, including in back-to-back tournaments in 2010 and 2014. However, conceding goals has been a big issue in the previous two World Cups that they have qualified for, as they allowed six goals in 2014, and five goals in 2010. The USA’s best showing came as they finished third in 1930, while their run to the quarterfinals in the 2002 World Cup remains their best modern-day effort.

The USA national side has always boasted many prolific stars, but their FIFA World Cup odds likely would have been shorter if they had talented players across the field. Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan are two of the most celebrated USA players, as both jointly hold the top scorer record for the nation with 57 goals apiece.

Meanwhile, Cobi Jones remains the player to have appeared for the national side more than any other player, as the midfielder played for the USA on 164 occasions. Donovan holds the records for the most World Cup appearances and goals for the USA.

USA Fun Facts In Previous World Cups

Interestingly, the USA has come up against Iran and England in previous editions of the competition. The USA is yet to beat Iran, but they do boast an unbeaten record against England. They famously caused one of the biggest World Cup upsets in history by beating the Three Lions 1-0 in 1950 before battling to a 1-1 draw at the 2010 World Cup.

The USA’s run in the 2014 World Cup made worldwide headlines due to one man- Tim Howard. The former Manchester United and Everton goalkeeper set a World Cup record for the most saves in a single match in the USA’s defeat after extra time against Belgium in the round of 16, as he saved 15 shots. His performance saw the hashtag ‘#ThingsTimHowardCouldSave’ trend on Twitter for days after USA’s exit from the competition.

Expected FIFA World Cup Team Roster

The FIFA World Cup betting stats highlight that the USA has a very young squad that will be heading to the competition later this year. It is expected that this year’s competition will be used to build experience ahead of the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted by the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
