Action resumes from Group B as the last fixture of the day, England takes on the USA at the Al Bayt Stadium. Emphatic winners against Iran, England would love to get another win to secure their passage to the knockout stage, but they are up against a very energetic USA.
In the FIFA rankings, England find itself in fifth place, whilst the USA are at an impressive 16th place. The USA will be more pushing to get the three points after being held to a draw in their first match against Wales.
A brilliant start to the campaign for England, putting six past Iran, settling some nerves about the England squad and their ability to score. In previous games leading up to the World Cup, especially in the Nations League fixtures, England struggled to get amongst the goals. Despite the goals scored, Gareth Southgate will be disappointed that his side still conceded twice.
Harry Kane is doubtful to make it for the match, which will be a huge blow for the Three Lions. He did not score in the first game, but his movement and range of passing was a joy to watch. Throughout the England camp there seems to be a positive feeling, and young players such as Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford are stepping up.
The USA dominated the first half against Wales, considerably limiting their opposition’s possession, but the lack of experience throughout the squad meant that they could not handle the pressure in the second half. Timothy Weah latched onto the ball with glee just outside the box, and slid the ball past Hennessey to open his account at the World Cup. But the great pressure counted for nothing as tactical changes by Wales killed off the momentum to get the second for the USA.
Head to head against England, the USA has lost 3-0 against the Three Lions in an international friendly, with a draw and also a narrow win in 1950 for the USA, which is the only win against their upcoming opponents. A similar result is needed for the USMNT to set them on course to a second-place finish in Group B and a 1-0 win is priced at 17/2 (9.50).
After a good game against Wales creating the chance for Weah, Christian Pulisic is priced at 30/7 (5.30) to score his first goal in the World Cup.
