England vs USA World Cup lineup, starting 11 for Group B match at Qatar 2022

After taking Iran apart in their first group game at this World Cup, England are already dreaming of another deep tournament run under Gareth Southgate.

And they will be heavily fancied again when they take on a USA side who were held by Wales in their opening fixture.

However, it is worth remembering that the last time these sides were last paired in a World Cup group stage (South Africa 2010), the United States finished first to England’s second following a 1-1 draw between the two.

Below are the predicted lineups for both teams ahead of this Group B clash.

England vs USA lineups

The burning question for both sides going into this game has been whether Harry Kane might be fit after picking up an ankle knock against Iran.

There were no great fears that the striker had sustained a tournament-ending injury, but it had been posited that he might miss out against the US as a precaution.

However, Southgate emphatically put those suggestions out of mind, saying: “Harry is good. It would be a brave decision to leave him out of the starting line-up!”

Responses to that team news are likely to have contrasted sharply on either side of the Atlantic.

With Harry Maguire having recovered from the dizziness that forced him off against Iran and Kane available, Southgate has the opportunity to name the same 11.

James Maddison will miss out on the squad again as he continues his recovery.

Christian PulisicYunus Musah, Weston McKennie and Timothy Weah all trained on Thursday despite picking up knocks against Wales.

Gio Reyna is also fit again after a hamstring issue, while Brenden Aaronson is an option in midfield having only come off the bench last time out.
