England vs USA lineup confirmed:
Jordan Pickford, Kieran Trippier, Harry Maguire, John Stones, Luke Shaw, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling, Bukayo Saka, Harry Kane
England take on the USA this evening in our second game of Group B.
A win would seal qualification through to the last 16 and would almost guarantee that we win the group.
Gareth Southgate led the Three Lions to a 6-2 win over Iran in our World Cup opener on Monday.
The likes of Bellingham, Saka and Rice shone for England out in Qatar on Wednesday, and we’ll be hoping for more of the same against the American’s tonight.
England vs USA lineup confirmed
Southgate has named the same starting XI that beat Iran 6-2 on Monday afternoon.
I would have liked to see Phil Foden come in for Mason Mount but it’s hard to argue against an unchanged starting lineup after a 6-2 win isn’t it!
This England vs USA lineup has more than enough about it to win the match comfortably.
As long as the boys start on the front foot again, they will have no problem getting the three points.
And if we are drawing, or worst case losing the game with 30 minutes or so left, Southgate has a wealth of quality options on the bench, including the likes of Foden, Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford.
I’m going for a 3-1 win for the Three Lions.
Come on England!
