This is the third meeting in FIFA World Cup history between England and the United States, with the United States winning in 1950 and seeing a tie in 2010. England won 3-0 the last time they faced the USA, in a friendly game in November 2018. Only one goal was scored for England that day. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson scored their only goals for England. Here are the Highlights of the England vs USA World Cup Match.

An action-packed first half comes to an end. The USA will expect themselves to play better in the second 45 minutes, even if it does come down to fine margins. England’s been sluggish so far but knows that they can go up a gear or two. More to come.
England creates their best chance of the game yet, as Shaw reaches the byline and sends a dangerous back-heel pass for Saka. However, he couldn’t keep his shot from inside the six-yard box down. Looks like someone is eager to play a one-two with Grealish. The Manchester City winger attempted the pass to Kane, who was nearby in deep defending. The USA attempted to close the distance quickly, though.
The USA have not conceded a first-half goal in any of their last four matches, they’ve gone unbeaten in their last two World Cup games, and they must maintain this level of excellence if they want to make it further into the tournament. England can win with patience and playing as a team or be just like Germany and Argentina who have been beaten by Brazil and Mexico respectively.
Fans of both countries were frustrated to see another goalless draw. Neither team deserved to win the game, and while they attempted to break the deadlock, they failed on every attempt. Fans of each country stopped caring during the early parts of the game. It didn’t take long for any hope of a breakthrough to vanish, and soon the match was forgotten.
