Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is hoping for the best when England take on the USA but admits he is nervous about Saturday's World Cup opener.

The Seasiders boss said: "I will probably be watching the England games with my family down at my local. There's quite a bit of atmosphere down there and if England score the place erupts.

"I will probably be in the thick of it, I have an England shirt and like everyone else I will be cheering on the lads.

"I must admit I'm a bit nervous about this one with the US. We've had one or two problems with injuries in the last 10 days and the US will play with no fear. They have some fantastic athletes and football is improving all the time over there.

"They're certainly no pushovers, which is a concern because in this competition you need a good start."
