USA fans ruthlessly mocked England ahead of their World Cup clash when asked to say something nice about their opponents on Friday. Gareth Southgate’s side faced opposition from accross the pond on the back of their opening tournament win over Iran on Monday.

FOX on TikTok asked USA fans to say something nice about England, which prompted several harsh responses from fans in Doha. “I would admit their girls look good but my wife might get mad, so I am going to say their food is barely edible,” one fan said.

Another fan joked: “The nicest thing is that they provide my dad, who is a dentist, a lot of money, their teeth are horrible!” Then former Tottenham and Fulham ace Clint Dempsey added: “Every time that I play them they are always good to me, because the three times that I played them I scored on them twice. So thank you all for that.”

A second former USA star Alexi Lalas said: “I like that Guinness stuff, they did a good job with that,” joking that England instead of Ireland created the popular beverage. Another fan revealed that she married an Englishman, though he has since switched allegiances.

“I married an Englishman,” she said. “But he knows what team to support in reality because happy wife, happy life.” Gregg Berhalter’s side come into the game with one point after their draw with Wales on Monday.

Group B has all to play for after Wales suffered a 2-0 defeat to Iran on Friday morning, as Carlos Quieroz’s side went level on points with England at the top of the group. The Three Lions will hope to continue their strong start to the tournament after a 6-2 win over the Iranians to begin the campaign.
