American soccer icon Alexi Lalas insists the USA can upset England in today's World Cup opener.
Lalas scored for the USA in a shock 2-0 win over England 17 years ago, and he believes the current side are more than capable of overcoming their more-fancied opponents.
"The United States have an incredible opportunity to beat England," Lalas told the Guardian.
"I just hope they don't retreat into their shells too much against England. I don't want to see them concede too much ground it's important that we attack Capello's side because they are ripe for defeat."
