USA vs England TV coverage plans

England will be looking to secure qualification for the World Cup knockout phase against the USA, and television coverage is available to those in the Americas.

The USMNT couldn’t hold on to a priceless victory in their tournament opener. A Gareth Bale penalty kept América limited to just one point.

England’s dominant 6-2 win over Iran put them top of Group B. It was a smooth performance from the Three Lions that showed they can be more expansive than people thought.

Unlike in 2010, England are not easy to touch and will not present an easy game for the United States. It has not been many years since the gap between the two national teams has been so significant. Gareth Southgate’s charges will look to make that show on Friday.

Concerns about Harry Kane’s fitness were allayed in the 24 hours before kick-off. The English striker will be fit enough to take on the American back line.

US TV Coverage Plans vs. England

England looking to secure qualification

The results of the opening day have made life considerably easier for England.

The Euro 2020 finalists amassed a strong goal difference against Iran. This will likely see them safe with a draw against the USMNT.

However, a win would mathematically guarantee them a place in the last 16 of the World Cup. America, on the other hand, is fighting for their lives after failing to defeat Wales.

Can America upset England? It is hard to see where the United States will be able to penetrate the Three Lions.

Kyle Walker’s return to full fitness may well force Gareth Southgate to switch back to a 5-3-2 formation. However, fans will be keen for the former Middlesbrough manager to stick with the attacking intent that destroyed Iran.

The US defense is not spectacular. Tim Ream has been the standout player, but even he made a terrible mistake conceding the penalty to Bale.

The way in which Gregg Berhalter’s team collapsed under the pressure on Monday was alarming. Once they needed to hold in the last 15 minutes, they struggled and fell back.

To do it against England would be a serious mistake. Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka have such raw pace that it would cause problems for the US defense.

Predicted lineups for USA vs England

The United States of America has no health or suspension concerns before the game.

Meanwhile, England welcome Kyle Walker back to the team. Harry Kane will retain his place in the starting XI, especially with Southgate looking to rest their captain if progression is secured before an all-British affair against Wales.

USA Expected Starting XI (4-3-3): Matt Turner, Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream, Walker Zimmerman, Sergino Dest, Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie, Gio Reyna, Christian Pulisic, Josh Sargent, Tim Weah

England Predicted Starting XI (4-3-3): Jordan Pickford, Kieran Trippier, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, Bukayo Saka
