USA vs England live: World Cup score, highlights, result from 2022 Group B match
When England take on the USA on Friday at Al Bayt Stadium, it will be a chance at another three points, which for England would mean locking up qualification to the Round of 16. But it goes beyond that for the Americans, which makes the battle that much more fascinating.
England put forth one of the stronger displays of any team in their opener, throttling Iran 6-2 to take a commanding lead of Group B. Another win would mathematically lock up a knockout-round berth and likely the top spot in the group, after Wales’ defeat to Iran earlier in the day. The positive goal difference established with the lopsided score vs. Iran is an added edge in the chase for the top spot.
The USA are even more desperate for the points given they allowed Wales a late equalizer to settle for a draw in their group opener. But beyond the final score, they’re also desperate to show the English that they’re to be feared as a rising football/soccer power. With several of the US players based in England, there will be no intimidation factor for the Americans.
A US victory would send them top of the group and make for an unpredictable final day. The USA will take on Iran, while England gets set for an all-British matchup against Gareth Bale’s Wales — who will need a win to keep their tournament hopes alive.

USA vs England lineups, team news
The US team has confirmed that all players are healthy and available after a controversy erupted over whether injury-prone playmaking talent Gio Reyna was healthy enough to come on as a sub vs. wales. The player and coach had differing accounts after the match.
Whether Reyna starts over right winger Tim Weah is one of two main lineup questions for the USA. The other involves midfielder Weston McKennie, who looked well short of full fitness against Wales and had to come off. Leeds United’s in-form Brenden Aaronson projects as a likely starter in his place.
USA problem (4-3-3, right to left): 1-Matt Turner (GK) — 2-Sergino Dest, 3-Walker Zimmerman, 13-Tim Ream, 5-Antonee Robinson — 11-Brenden Aaronson, 4-Tyler Adams, 6-Yunus Musah — 21-Tim Weah, 24- Josh Sargent, 10-Christian Police.
Manager Gareth Southgate made it clear he won’t be resting Harry Kane for this matchup even though the England captain picked up a knock against Iran that required a scan.
With Harry Maguire recovered from dizziness in the wake of the Iran match, the only player out injured is James Maddison (knee), who has yet to train with the team according to reports.

England vs USA live stream, TV channel
The Americans are outmatched on paper against the star-studded English team which flexed its muscle in a lopsided 6-2 win over Iran. But the USA have never lost to England at the Word Cup, with a win and draw in their only two matches on this stage.
Team USA will be playing with a chip on its shoulder as the underdog at Al Bayt Stadium, but also because it needs any point it can muster after letting victory slip through its hands against Wales. England can clinch a spot in the knockouts — and more than likely first place — with a victory
