When England take on the United States on Friday at the Al Bayt Stadium, it will be a chance for another three points, which would mean England are unable to progress to the last 16. But for the Americans it goes further, which makes the battle that much more fascinating.
England put in one of the strongest performances of any side in their opener, thwarting Iran 6-2 to take the lead in Group B. Another win would mathematically secure a place in the round of 16 and probably first place in the group, following Wales’ defeat by Iran earlier in the day. The positive goal difference established with the lopsided scoreline against Iran is an added plus in the race for first place.
The USA are even more desperate for points as they conceded Wales a late equalizer to settle for a draw in their opening group fixture. But beyond the final score, they are desperate to show the English that they are to be feared as a footballing power on the rise. With many of the US players based in England, there will be no intimidation factor for the Americans.
A US win would send them to the front of the pack and make the final day unpredictable. The United States will take on Iran, while England prepare for an all-British fixture against Gareth Bale’s Wales, who will need a win to keep their tournament hopes alive.

USA vs England Live Updates World Cup 2022 Highlights
5 hours and 15 minutes from kick-off: The United States will wear a blue kit for the last two games. It’s a kit that wasn’t received well when it first came out.
USMNT will wear blue kits in the remaining Group B matches against England on Friday and Iran next Tuesday, according to a spokesman.

5 hours and 30 minutes from kick-off: The last game England and the USA met at the World Cup will always be remembered for this scream from England goalkeeper Robert Green, which allowed Clint Dempsey to score and level things at 1-1.

USA vs England lineups, team news
The USA squad confirmed all players are healthy and available after a controversy erupted over whether injury-prone playmaking talent Gio Reyna was healthy enough to come on as a substitute against Wales. The player and the manager had different accounts after the game.
Whether Reyna restarts right wing Tim Weah is one of the top two questions on lineup for the United States. The other concerns midfielder Weston McKennie, who looked well below full fitness against Wales and had to retire. Leeds United’s in-form Brenden Aaronson is proposed as a likely starter in his place.
Probable USA (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Matt Turner (PO) — 2-Sergino Dest, 3-Walker Zimmerman, 13-Tim Ream, 5-Antonee Robinson — 11-Brenden Aaronson, 4-Tyler Adams, 6-Yunus Musah — 21-Tim Weah, 24- Josh Sargent, 10-Christian Pulisic.
Manager Gareth Southgate has made it clear he will not rest Harry Kane for this fixture, even though the England captain took a knock against Iran which required a scan.
With Harry Maguire recovering from his dizzy spells after the Iran match, the only player injured is James Maddison (knee), who is reportedly yet to train with the squad.
Probable England (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Jordan Pickford (PO) — 12-Kieran Trippier, 5-John Stones, 6-Harry Maguire, 3-Luke Shaw — 22-Jude Bellingham, 4-Declan Rice, 19-Mason Mount — 17-Bukayo Saka, 9- Harry Kane, 10-Raheem Sterling
England vs USA live stream, TV channel
The Americans are defeated on paper against the star-studded England squad who flexed their muscles in a lopsided 6-2 victory over Iran. But the United States have never lost to England at the World Cup, with a win and a draw in their only two meetings at this stage.
Team USA will play with a chip on their back as underdogs at Al Bayt Stadium, but also because they need whatever points they can muster after letting their win against Wales slip away. England can clinch a place in the round of 16 – and quite possibly first place – with a win
