Match facts

England

  • In all competitions, England have won eight of their 11 meetings with USA (D1 L2). Their last defeat against them came in June 1993 (0-2), winning four and drawing one of their meetings since then.
  • England won 3-0 the last time they faced USA, in a friendly match in November 2018. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson scored their only goals for the Three Lions in this game.
  • Following their 6-2 victory over Iran on MD1, England are looking to win their opening two games at the World Cup for a fourth time, also doing so in 1982, 2006 and 2018. Their second game at the 2018 edition saw them win 6-1 against Panama.
  • England had two players aged 21 or younger – Jude Bellingham (19) and Bukayo Saka (21) – score in a World Cup match for the first time when they beat Iran on MD1. No England player has ever scored in consecutive World Cup appearances when aged 21 or younger, with Michael Owen the youngest to do so aged 22 in 2002.

USA

  • This is the third meeting between England and USA at the FIFA World Cup, with the United States winning 1-0 in 1950 before a 1-1 draw in 2010.
  • USA haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 18 World Cup matches against European nations (32 goals conceded), since a 1-0 victory over England in 1950.
  • USA have played more games at the World Cup without ever having a goalless draw than any other side (34), while England have had more games finish 0-0 than any other nation (11).
  • Timothy Weah has scored two goals in his last four games for USA in all competitions, as many as he had in his first 22 appearances for his country. He's looking to become just the third player to score in both of USA's first two games at a World Cup, after Bert Patenaude (1930) and Clint Dempsey (2014).

Predictions

Twelve years have passed since these two nations last locked horns on the international stage, and although England were forced to settle for a score draw against the USA in their last meeting, Southgate and co head into Friday's fixture in buoyant mood and as firm favourites to claim maximum points.

While there have already been a couple shock results at this year's tournament in Qatar, the Three Lions will be confident of success in Al Khor and should have few problems in securing a routine victory over their American counterparts.

Final Score – 2 : 0
