The United States will take on England in a Group B clash in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET on FOX. The United States tied Wales in their first match of the tournament on Monday to get a point in the standings. England demolished Iran in their first match and can advance to the Round of 16 with a win over the U.S.
Elsewhere in the group, Iran defeated Wales earlier on Friday 2-1 to make things interesting. Despite this outcome, the United State will have a shot to advance to the Knockout stage with a win over Iran in the next match. That alleviates some of the pressure to win, though any result other than a loss would be ideal.
USA is a huge underdog on DraftKings Sportsbook to win the match at +600 while England is -210 with a draw coming in a +340. Considering the U.S. tied Wales and then the Welsh went and lost to Iran, who got destroyed by England, these lines make sense.
Below we’ll be tracking all the action for USA vs. England in the World Cup.
USA vs. England live updates
Full time - It’s officially a 0-0 draw between England and USA, which moves the group leaders to four points while the Americans sit at two points. USA will need a win in the final match to guarantee qualification for the knockout round, while England can get in with a win or draw depending on how the match between USA-Iran goes. England could also be in with a loss against Wales depending on tiebreakers.
90th minute - We’ve got four minutes of stoppage time and it looks like England are trying harder to get that winning goal than the Americans. England can secure a spot in the knockout round with a win here, so it makes sense.
87th minute - Marcus Rashford may have had an in on the break for England, but the striker ultimately had to track back a bit after the USA defenders recovered. Rashford ultimately did get a shot to conclude the English attack, with Matt Turner making a relatively easy save. We’re still looking at a 0-0 result here, which helps the Americans more in the grand scheme of things.
83rd minute - The USA are bringing on Gio Reyna and Josh Sargent to play up top, replacing Haji Wright and Tim Weah. USA also brought on Brenden Aaronson, so fans are getting to see some of the talented youngsters who were expected to get more playing time than they have so far.
75th minute - England have been more efficient in the middle of the park and are starting to get some good chances in the final third. Neither team has been able to put a complete attack together yet but England have looked more threatening in the last few minutes of play.
69th minute - Sterling and Bellingham have come off for England. Gareth Southgate has brought on Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish to provide more support in the midfield, as he likely feels USA are controlling that part of the pitch at this moment. We’ll see if these substitutes can have an impact for England.
60th minute - Both teams have been unable to complete the final move necessary to break this deadlock but the Americans have gotten a few opportunities of a pair of corner kicks and seem to be the more aggressive side offensively in this match.
50th minute - It technically qualified as a counterattack for USA even though they were outnumbered two to six on the break. McKinnie skied another shot from outside the box, adding to a frustrating match for him. Raheem Sterling made a nice darting run inside the American box but Robinson tracked back well and made a timely steal. The game is starting to open up more as these teams get back into the flow of things.
Halftime - England has held the ball more with 62% possession, but USA have had one more shot and created better opportunities in the first half. Both teams had two corners, and no cards were handed out. England had the first and last chances of the half but USA had the best chances overall. As the match went on, it seemed like the Americans were gaining more confidence. Dest and Robinson have definitely been more aggressive on the flanks and that should continue in the second half. Harry Kane has been relatively quiet after his initial chance, which is something England will try to fix in the second half. We’ve got everything to play for over the next 45+ minutes of this Group B contest.
45th minute - Mason Mount just put a solid ground shot on target for England, resulting a corner kick after a good save from Matt Turner. That’s the last attack of the first half, and we’ve entered the break at 0-0.
43rd minute - Christian Pulisic comes in with another good chance for the Americans but simply could not get enough on a header from inside the box to trouble Jordan Pickford. The shot was also wide of the goal and ultimately, another good USA offensive effort dies out. However, this has been a nice surge for the Americans as the first half is almost over.
41st minute - Sergino Dest has found something on the right side and made his best move of the match, slicing up the sidelines and eventually cutting into the box before his shot was deflected out for a corner kick. The wingbacks have been more aggressive in this game and Dest will certainly look to continue pushing Luke Shaw on the outside.
33rd minute - Christian Pulisic has hit the post for the Americans off a tough angle! Unfortunately, the ball went out of the bounds on the richochet for a goal kick but USA are showing good intent in the latter part of the first half.
26th minute - We’ve seen the first good chance for USA, with Weston McKennie skying a shot from inside the box on a nice cross. This was the first strong attack by the Americans as they got numbers up before delivering a pinpoint ball into the box. USA might be starting to break out of the initial shell they appeared to be in to start the match.
20th minute - The Americans have made some good moves on the flanks, with Sergino Dest and Antonee Robinson both making decent runs. Weston McKennie appears to be less than 100%, which is an issue given how Gregg Berhalter appears to have this side set up. The midfielder is struggling to move up on counter opportunities and has made some poor challenges in the defensive third. We’ll see if he gets subbed soon. It’s still 0-0 on the scoreboard, so USA are not in a bad position here.
10th minute - We’ve just seen the first really dangerous move from England, with Harry Kane having a chance inside the box off a pass from Bukayo Saka. The USA managed to get a deflection to send the shot wide of the goal but England nearly got a good chance in the aftermath of the ensuing corner kick.
