He is now an analyst for Fox Sports
Donovan, who will be participating in the tournament as a guest analyst for the FOX network, made an exercise to define the teams that will advance, predicted the teams that will qualify to the final rounds, until defining his favorite for champion and, according to his analysis, the USMNT will reach nothing less than the Final, in a path where they will leave out Ecuador in the second round, the defending champion, France, in the quarterfinals and Cameroon in the semifinals.
Donovan believes the USMNT will reach the final game
In the final, they will face Brazil, eventual champions of the tournament. The “Scrath do ouro” will face Spain in the quarterfinals and Argentina in the semifinals.
The LA Galaxy striker’s statement is the response from California to the reckless prediction of another historic player, but from the England national team, Wayne Rooney, who on Friday also assured that the “Team of the Rose” will beat the USMNT in their group stage match.
When and where does the United States make its Qatar 2022 debut?
The US is set to face Wales in Group B in its opener. They will then have the most important matchup of the group stage against England and will close out in a mouthwatering matchup against Iran.
Gregg Berhalter’s team, led by Christian Pulisic and Giovanni Reyna, will debut this Monday, November 21, in Qatar 2022 against Wales at Al Rayyan Stadium. Their second duel will be on November 25 and they will close on Tuesday, November 29.
“Mexico will suffer”
A connoisseur of soccer in the region, the former Club Len striker pointed out that Mexico will have a tough time and will be left out in the group stage. His argument is not only because they will face a competitive Poland in the dispute for the second available ticket, after Argentina, but he considers that Arabia will advance because they have more support and practically play at home.
Donovan believes that the KSA will surprise and advance to the second round
It is a difficult group. Poland has a killer like Lewandowski, but the most interesting match, for me, is against Saudi Arabia. Because they are next to Qatar and I think they will have 30, 40, 50 thousand fans in the stadium. It will be an away game and not only for Mexico, also for Argentina and Poland. But Mexico is going to advance
