England can guarantee their passage into the World Cup last 16 by beating the USA in their second Group B fixture on Friday evening.

The Three Lions kicked off their Qatar 2022 campaign with a 6-2 thumping of sorry Iran but are set to face a stiffer test of their credentials against the Stars and Stripes, who opened their tournament by drawing with Wales.

England boast eight wins from 11 meetings with the USA but have yet to beat them in two previous World Cup matches, the most recent being the 1-1 draw in 2010 when Rob Green failed to stop Clint Dempsey’s pearoller.


Gregg Berhalter’s team were denied all three points against Wales on Monday as Gareth Bale’s late penalty cancelled out Tim Weah’s first-half strike.

England v USA prediction

Mark Lawrenson: England played well, they started off at a high tempo. They scored early and put it to bed early against a dire Iran side. They’ll be sweating on Harry Kane’s fitness even though that scan seems to be okay. He’s had a few ankle injuries over the years. USA will swarm all over them like bees but I just don’t see a USA victory. I see a narrow 2-1 win to England.
