Can I solder a USB cable directly to an Xbox controller board?

Hey everyone. So, I find myself in a unique situation. I will try to break down my problem as simply as possible:

::I have an S-Type (small) Original Xbox controller with a bad cable. I only have this one controller.

::I do not have a breakaway cable to connect the controller to the Xbox, BUT I have an Xbox controller port to female USB port cable. (pictured here: https://ibb.co/wJTTYfL )

My question is this: could I desolder the Xbox controller cable from the controller board and solder on a USB cable with a standard type-A (male) USB connector to connect to the Xbox, through the pictured-above female USB port?
