England vs USA live stream UK TV channel and how to watch today

England meet the United States in the second game of Group B at the World Cup, with the Three Lions putting themselves in a very strong position thanks to their big opening win against Iran.

Gareth Southgate restored Harry Kane to full fitness after suffering an ankle injury with a win here in that second game to secure a place in the last 16.

The USA are under even more pressure to get a result after failing to maintain their lead against Wales. Gregg Berhalter could therefore decide to reshuffle the field in midfield as they appear to be unbeaten at the very least.

England have never beaten the USA in a World Cup game, with the Americans winning in 1950 and the two sides drawing in 2010.

Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

When does England play USA?

The Group B game kicks off at 7pm on Friday 25 November at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor.

What’s new from the team?

Harry Kane has picked up a minor injury scare after being hit to the right ankle in the Iran game and is fit to start.

Kyle Walker wasn’t fit enough to play the opener due to a groin problem, but he’s back in contention here. Doubts remain about James Maddison as Leicester misses training with a knee injury.

Midfielder Yunus Musah was substituted off against Wales with a toe injury. Weston McKennie is struggling with groin problems. Should neither of them be fit enough to start, Cristian Roldan could play in midfield.

Sergino Dest was doubtful for the Wales game and then left the game which could also put his place here in question.

Gregg Berhalter will reconsider Gio Reyna from the start after holding him back in the opening game over fitness concerns.

Expected Lineups

England XI: Pickford; Trippier, Steine, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Mountain; Saka, Kane, Sterling

forecast

England struggled against Iran in the opener and the United States, lively against Wales, collapsed in the second half. Southgate’s side will have too much here and improve the game to take six points. England 2-1 United States.
