England v USA World Cup kick-off time, TV channel, live stream details

England and USA begin their World Cup rivalry this evening as the focus shifts back onto Group B.

Gareth Southgate’s side are top of Group B after tearing through Iran to start their tournament with a stunning 6-2 victory but will know tougher tests are to come in the shape of the Americans and Wales.

USA have a history of upsetting England in World Cups, doing so at Brazil 1950 and South Africa 2010, and this new generation will be desperate to announce themselves properly on the global stage by beating one of the teams fancied to go all the way.

They were held to a 1-1 draw by Wales on Monday as Gareth Bale’s late penalty ensured the points were shared despite Gregg Berhalter’s side dominating for long periods.

We’ve had some eye-catching upsets already put in Qatar, with Saudi Arabia and Japan claiming the headlines, and the Americans have proven a bogey team for the Three Lions over the years – from the Miracle of Belo Horizonte in 1950 to the madness of Rob Green’s goalkeeping mistake in Rustenburg in 2010 – so you could understand why there may be nerves among supporters.

England have proven under Gareth Southgate that they’ve learned from the mistakes of previous generations and will be oozing with confidence after hammering Iran 6-2 in their opener.

A win would secure their place in the last 16 of the World Cup with one game still to play in Group B and would be the latest demon banished in the Southgate era.

But USA believe this is the best squad they’ve ever taken to a major tournament, one bursting with young talent, and there would be no better way to make the rest of the world sit up and take them seriously than getting a result against their old rivals.

Last night Richarlison’s second-half goals earned World Cup favourites Brazil a deserved 2-0 win over Serbia in their Group G opener in Lusail.

England v USA prediction

With Harry Kane passed fit, Southgate may well name the same XI that dismantled Iran and resist reverting to a back three despite Kyle Walker’s claims he is ready to go.

England can expect much more of a test than Iran offered them and the Americans’ quick forwards could cause issues for a backline that have not yet looked wholly convincing.

USA were too determined, too athletic, and too good for Wales for 70 minutes but could not finish the job. To get a result against England, they will need a 90-minute (or 100+ given the stoppage time in this tournament) performance.

You’d question whether this young group can reach those levels against an England team oozing with confidence and stacked with quality so Southgate’s side may be able to banish the demons of 1950 and 2010.

It could be a fiery contest and the Special Relationship may become a strained one by the time the full time whistle goes.
