England just beat Iran 6-2 in their World Cup opener this afternoon to set themselves up for a very good start to the competition.
Next up though, it probably gets a bit harder for England against the USA on Friday evening.
Chelsea had two of their players starting for England today, Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling. Both players played well, and Sterling scored one, and set another up.
Mount was also very good playing in his best and more natural number 8 position. Even still, super agent Jon Smith believes that Mount will get dropped on Friday to be replaced by Phil Foden, who came on for him in the second half today.
Foden looked very good too and brings something different, and this is why Smith believes that it will be Mount out and Foden in against the USA on Friday.
“The only change on Friday against USA, I think, will be Mason Mount out and Phil Foden in,” Smith said in an exclusive interview with Caught Offside after the England and Iran game today.
