Quick qualification for the knockout phase beckons for England as they prepare facing the United States of America on the day after Thanksgiving, the knowledge of three points remaining would guarantee a spot in the round of 16. Indeed, in this most grueling of World Cups, winning their first two games could give Gareth Southgate a chance to rotate in the final game against Wales, where a point would suffice.

That could mean that England is getting ahead of things, which has already had quite a few setbacks against the USMNT at the World Cup. A 1-0 defeat in 1950 was so unexpected that some in the UK assumed reports from Brazil contained a typo in the score, while a 1-1 draw in 2010 was a devastating start to a disastrous World Cup.

England storylines

Fears that the blow Harry Kane received to the ankle in Monday’s 6-2 win over Iran appear to have abated and if the England captain is fit Southgate could be tempted to stick to the XI who started the tournament in such an impressive way. Likewise, Kyle Walker is also working his way back to fitness, with deeper options in the backline, and it’s now just James Maddison struggling to get fit.

Southgate is expected to stick with the 4-3-3 system he used in the opener, which will allow England to level with a midfield that is a relatively strong point for the US, but will have one less centre-back put pressure on the defense. to sharpen up after conceding two sloppy goals in a convincing victory. England have only kept clean sheets twice in 2022 and their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford said: “As a whole squad we want to keep a clean sheet because we know how important they are through tournament football. We were 4-0 up and actually got an easy goal conceded. They got a penalty that was a bit indifferent. You’ll never be happy with a goal and we’ll go through to the US and hopefully get a clean sheet.”
