England vs USA, FIFA World Cup 2022 – A Youthful United States Side Outplayed England

England vs USA, FIFA World Cup 2022 – A Youthful United States Side Outplayed England

A youthful United States side outplayed England in their World Cup Group B clash on Friday but was left to rue a flurry of missed chances and poor finishing in both halves after settling for a 0-0 draw at the Al Bayt Stadium. England, unchanged from Monday’s 6-2 triumph over Iran, might have advanced to the knockout stage with a win, but they were reckless in possession and failed to control the Americans, who increased in confidence as the game progressed. As a result, the United States has retained its unblemished record versus England.

The United States outran England in the middle of the field, as the Three Lions failed to deal with their opponents’ high-intensity pressing. Christian Pulisic hit the crossbar in the 32nd minute, as both teams had numerous chances. Harry Kane had a few shots at goal but couldn’t find the back of the net, and the USA put in a spirited performance to hold England to a goalless draw in a Group B match. In their final group game against Wales, England must avoid defeat to advance to the next round.

England vs USA – Playing XI

England: Jordan Pickford, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Kieran Trippier, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw, Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling

United States: Matt Turner, Sergio Dest, Walker Zimmerman, Tyler Adams, Antonee Robinson, Yunus Musah, Weston McKennie, Christian Pulisic, Tim Ream, Haji Wright, Tim Weah
