England vs USA - World Cup 2022

England and USA meet again in the World Cup in their second round group match of Group B. The game kicks off at 10pm local time (7pm UK Time) in the Al Bayt Stadium.

England arrive into this game on the back of a perfect start to the World Cup after defeating Iran 6-2 in their opening match. Meanwhile, the USA will be frustrated that they failed to hold on for victory over Wales in their opening game, the Welsh equalising late on from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw.

England are odds-on with Betzone and are the current 8/15 favourites to win their second match of the World Cup in Qatar.

England vs USA Analysis

ENGLAND

England were impressive in their 6-2 victory over Iran, and they will aim to build on that result against the USA. A win in this clash would see England through to the last 16, and they’ll be looking for a solid start to the match.

Key Players: Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling

Team News: Gareth Southgate is likely to stick to the same starting 11 that saw off Iran although there is a minor concern over Harry Kane who picked up an ankle knock.

Predicted Line-Up: Pickford, Trippier, Dier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Saka, Rice, Bellingham, Sterling, Kane

USA

The USA dominated the first half against Wales and were well worth their 1-0 lead and will feel unlucky that they could not see out the match for victory. They played excellent football in spells against the Welsh and could cause England some problems.

Key Players: Tyler Adams, Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie

Team News: The USA are likely to stick to the same team that impressed against Wales with their youthful exuberance.

Predicted Line-Up: Turner, Dest, Robinson, Ream, Zimmerman, Musah, Adams, McKennie, Pulisic, Weah, Sargent

England vs USA Prediction

England will be hoping to secure qualification before they face a tricky final group match against rivals Wales. Their experience should count for plenty against this young USA side and they will be expected to record another victory.
