  • England got their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign off to an excellent start as they put six goals past Iran in what was an eye-catching opening, although they will need to shore up defensively having allowed their opponents to score two in reply.
  • Gareth Southgate moved away from his favoured five at the back and it seemingly worked well with England working the ball forward with ease and he is likely to stick with the same XI for this clash, although Harry Kane and Harry Maguire are slight doubts through injury and illness respectively.


  • United States could not hold on to the lead as they succumbed to a late penalty which resulted in them drawing with Wales in their opening game but they cannot dwell on that disappointment as they face the toughest task in the group in this clash with England.
  • This is not likely to be the game that defines whether USA go home early or advance to the knockout stages but a good performance is a must and Gregg Berhalter may opt to bring Gio Reyna into the side as he looks for more threat and cohesion in the final third.



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Bellingham, Rice; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane


QUESTIONABLE: James Maddison (Injured), Harry Kane (Injured), Harry Maguire (Illness)


PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Turner; Dest, Zimmermann, Ream, Robinson; McKennie, Adams, Musah; Reyna, Weah, Pulisic


QUESTIONABLE: Weston McKennie (Injured), Yunus Musah (Injured)


  • England have lost only four of their last 24 FIFA World Cup group stage matches (W11 D9)
  • England have kept only two clean sheets in their last 12 World Cup matches
  • England are aiming to win their first two matches at a second successive FIFA World Cup having opened up with two wins at Russia 2018
  • England are facing a CONCACAF representative in the group stage at a fifth successive World Cup final competition: England 2-0 Trinidad and Tobago (2006), England 1-1 USA (2010), Costa Rica 0-0 England (2014), England 6-1 Panama (2018) and England v USA (2022)
  • England are three goals away from reaching the landmark of 100 goals scored at FIFA World Cup final competitions
  • England have conceded two goals in each of their last three World Cup matches. They have never conceded two or more goals in four successive World Cup matches
  • Harry Kane is two goals away from equalling Wayne Rooney’s record of 53 goals for England
  • Against IR Iran, Jude Bellingham became the first player born in the 2000s to score a FIFA World Cup goal
  • USA are unbeaten in their previous two World Cup matches against England (W1 D1)
  • USA have lost only one of their last seven World Cup group stage matches (W2 D4)
  • USA have scored in 10 of their last 11 FIFA World Cup matches
  • USA have drawn five of their last six World Cup group stage matches against European opposition
  • USA are without a win in their last ten World Cup matches against European opposition (D5 L5)
  • USA have only kept two clean sheets in their last 28 World Cup matches


England looked like a different side to the one that struggled during the UEFA Nations League as they comfortably defeated Iran in their opening game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They scored six in that one-sided affair and while there are improvements to make at the back, they showed their quality in abundance going forward. United States will be next to attempt to stop them but face a difficult task having failed to put Wales to the sword in their first game. The Americans almost claimed all three points but conceded a late penalty which cost them the win and England’s ability to find the back of the net with ease against Iran will worry them so back Gareth Southgate’s side to prevail and book their spot in the Round of 16.
