USA told to find a way to get Leeds United star Brenden Aaronson into team for World Cup success

Bradley Wright-Phillips believes USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter needs to find a way to get Brenden Aaronson into the team at the World cup. The former Manchester City and Southampton striker has spent the majority of his career in the MLS and knows a thing or two about England's opposition this evening.

Tyler Adams played a key role in the midfield for his country, and Wright-Phillips believes their midfield trio can cause problems for most sides.

Wright-Phillips told BBC's World Cup Daily: "I think they see it as a big brother. They know they're not better, I think now with the exports they've had going to England and the players they've got playing in the Premier League and so on, playing international football they're no longer scared.

"That's what it seems like to me. They're no longer scared and they think they can give it a good go. I think the three main ones for me, the midfield is the strongest part of their team. Tyler Adams, Musah and Weston McKennie are very, very good midfielders.

"They can cause any team problems, but where I think they'll struggle is their attacking side of the game. I don't think they have enough goal scorers to really cause us any trouble, but they have a really good midfield. They do need to find a way to get Aaronson in the team, I think he can bring something a little different."
