Quick qualification to the elimination phase is tempting for England as they prepare for it face the United States of America the day after Thanksgiving, knowing three more points would guarantee a spot in the round of 16. Indeed, in this most demanding World Cup, winning the first two games could offer Gareth Southgate the opportunity to turn the tables in the final game against Wales, where a point would be enough.

That could be a head start for England, who had their fair share of upsets against the USMNT at the World Cup. The 1-0 defeat in 1950 was so unexpected that some in the UK assumed the dispatches from Brazil contained a typo in the score, while the 1-1 draw in 2010 was a devastating start to a disastrous World Cup.

Stories of England

Concerns over Harry Kane picking up an ankle injury in Monday’s 6-2 win over Iran appear to have eased and if the England captain is fit, Southgate could be tempted to stick with the XI that started the tournament in such impressive fashion . Likewise, Kyle Walker is also working his way back to fitness, offering deeper options in the backline and now it’s only James Maddison struggling for fitness.

Southgate is expected to stick with the 4-3-3 system he used in the passing game, which will allow England to balance numbers with midfield, a relatively strong suit for the USA, but with one center back, there will be pressure on the defense. tighten up after conceding two sloppy goals in a convincing win. England have only kept two clean sheets in 2022 and their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford said: “As a whole team we want to keep clean sheets because we know how important they are to tournament football. We were 4-0 up and conceded a really easy goal.” They were awarded a penalty which was a bit indifferent. You’re never happy when you get a goal and we follow up on the USA and hopefully get a clean sheet.”
