After tearing Iran apart in their first group game at this World Cup, England are already dreaming of another strong tournament victory under Gareth Southgate.
And they’ll be in hot demand again when they take on a US side who were beaten in their opening match against Wales.
However, it is important to remember that the last time these sides met in a World Cup group stage (South Africa 2010), the United States finished second after a 1-1 draw with England.
Below are the predicted lineups for both teams ahead of this Group B clash.

Lineups England vs USA
The burning question for both sides ahead of this game was whether Harry Kane could be fit after picking up an ankle bump against Iran.
There were no major fears that the forward had picked up an injury at the end of the tournament, but rumors have been circulating that he might miss the USA as a precaution.
However, Southgate firmly dismissed these suggestions, saying: “Harry is good. It would be a brave decision to remove him from the starting line-up!”
Reactions to this team news are likely to vary widely on both sides of the Atlantic.
