Yunus Musah on tackling England at World Cup. As he gets ready for the 2019 World Cup, Yunus Musah says he is eager to learn exactly where he stands on the international stage. At the upcoming tournament in Qatar, Musah and the American men’s national team are scheduled to play Wales, England, and Iran. Musah, who was born in the United States but was reared in England, is especially excited to play against the Three Lions and Wales to see how he compares to British athletes on the biggest platform.
He told CBS Sports that whether or not he was present would be evident. We’re going to Qatar to give it our all, to win as many games as we can, and to advance as far in the competition as we can. We intend to finish strong. We believe that as a team, we are up to the task. We’re at a decent level right now, and in four years, we should be even better level, playing in large clubs, being key players in big teams, which most people already are, he continued. Imagine the team in four years if they are successful now.
The midfielder, who was raised at Arsenal’s academy, has already expressed his excitement for the England game. Musah has threatened to “smash” his buddies Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka, admitting that the game will be a significant occasion for him and his friends and family back home. One of the young USMNT talents hoping to advance significantly in their careers at this competition is Musah.
The Valencia midfielder is an important part of a young team that is led by players with significant playing experience from the top leagues in the globe, like Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, and Gio Reyna. Before the World Cup begins, Musah and Valencia have two more games left: a trip to Real Sociedad on Sunday and a match against Real Betis at home on November 10.
