England know that a second straight World Cup win will see them qualify from Group B, following their clinical display in the win over Iran.

The opponents this time are the United States, who themselves drew with Wales – although Gregg Berhalter’s side will no doubt spoil the fact that they were so dominant in this game at the start and did not make their superiority count enough to take the three points.

The United States know that while a loss would make things difficult, they still have to face Iran in their final game – reportedly the weakest of the quartet, with four points potentially enough to move on depending on results elsewhere.

Bukayo Saka’s brilliant performance in the Three Lions opener surely means he will hold onto his place, with perhaps only injuries likely to see Gareth Southgate change his line-up.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

When is England vs USA?

The Group B match will kick off at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 25 at Al-Bayt Stadium in Al Khor.

What TV channel is it on and how can I watch online?

ITV 1 will begin coverage at 6:05 p.m. just after its coverage of Netherlands v Ecuador

It will be streamed for free and you can also stream it live for free on the ITV hub and the ITVX app.

What’s up with the team?

Harry Kane suffered a minor injury after a blow to his right ankle in the game against Iran and will be fit to start.

Kyle Walker wasn’t fit enough to play the opener due to his groin problem, but he’s back here. Doubts remain over James Maddison with Leicester missing training with a knee injury.

Midfielder Yunus Musah was out injured against Wales with a toe injury. Weston McKennie has a groin problem. If neither of them is fit enough to start then Cristian Roldan could come and secure the midfield.

Sergino Dest was a doubt for the game against Wales and then left the game which could also put his place in doubt here.

Gregg Berhalter will reconsider Gio Reyna early on, having held him off for fitness issues in the opener.

Planned compositions

England XI: Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Mount; Saka, Kane, Sterling

United States XI: Turner; Yedlin, Zimmerman, Rame, Robinson; Acosta, Adams, Roldan; Weah, Sargeant, Pulisic

Odds

England: 8/15

Draw: 29/10

United States: 19/4

Prediction

England soar after their rout of Iran in the first half and the United States, although keen against Wales, crumbled in the second half. Southgate’s side will have too many here and will lead the game to move to six points. England 2-1 USA.
