USA vs England live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group B match

By | November 25, 2022

When England take on the USA on Friday at Al Bayt Stadium, it will be a chance at another three points, which for England would mean locking up qualification to the Round of 16. But it goes beyond that for the Americans, which makes the battle that much more fascinating.

England put forth one of the stronger displays of any team in their opener, throttling Iran 6-2 to take a commanding lead of Group B. Another win would mathematically lock up a knockout-round berth and likely the top spot in the group, after Wales’ defeat to Iran earlier in the day. The positive goal difference established with the lopsided score vs. Iran is an added edge in the chase for the top spot.

The USA are even more desperate for the points given they allowed Wales a late equalizer to settle for a draw in their group opener. But beyond the final score, they’re also desperate to show the English that they’re to be feared as a rising football/soccer power. With several of the U.S. players based in England, there will be no intimidation factor for the Americans.

A U.S. victory would send them top of the group and make for an unpredictable final day. The USA will take on Iran, while England gets set for an all-British matchup against Gareth Bale’s Wales — who will need a win to keep their tournament hopes alive.

5 hrs 5 mins from kickoff: WHAT a result for the United States in the first game of the day. With Iran beating Wales, the United States are in a fantastic position to advance through the group. In fact, now the match against England becomes simply a bonus.

Here’s the simple situation for the U.S. to qualify for the knockout stage: Win vs. Iran and you’re in. There are a few more quirks to that, but it’s essentially as simple as that.

The match against England today now becomes a bonus. Defeat, even by a hefty margin, wouldn’t be earth-shattering. The U.S. can go for points today with very little to lose.

5 hrs 15 mins from kickoff: The USA will be wearing a blue kit for its final two matches. It’s a kit that was not received well when it first came out.

5 hrs 30 mins from kickoff: The last match in which England and the USA met in the World Cup will always be remembered for this howler by England ‘keeper Robert Green, which allowed Clint Dempsey to net and level things up 1-1.

And that 1-1 result led to this famous back page in the USA:

But did you know that the two protagonists of that moment got together years later to talk about it? Dempsey got emotional about it.

USA vs England lineups, team news

The U.S. team has confirmed that all players are healthy and available after a controversy that erupted over whether injury-prone playmaking talent Gio Reyna was healthy enough to come on as a sub vs. Wales. The player and coach had differing accounts after the match.

Whether Reyna starts over right winger Tim Weah is one of two main lineup questions for the USA. The other involves midfilder Weston McKennie, who looked well short of full fitness against Wales and had to come off. Leeds United’s in-form Brenden Aaronson projects as a likely starter in his place.

USA probable (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Matt Turner (GK) — 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 made it clear he won’t be resting Harry Kane for this matchup even though the England captain picked up a knock against Iran that required a scan.

With Harry Maguire recovered from dizziness in the wake of the Iran match, the only player out injured is James Maddison (knee), who has yet to train with the team according to reports.

England probable (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Jordan Pickford (GK) — 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

The Americans are outmatched on paper against the star-studded English team which flexed its muscle in a lopsided 6-2 win over Iran. But the USA have never lost to England at the Word Cup, with a win and draw in their only two matchups on this stage.

Team USA will be playing with a chip on its shoulder as the underdog at Al Bayt Stadium, but also because it needs any point it can muster after letting victory slip through its hands against Wales. England can clinch a spot in the knockouts — and more than likely first place — with a victory
