England v USA live scores and latest World Cup 2022 updates – Christian Pulisic hits the crossbar in Qatar

England squad sings national anthem before facing USA in Group B clash

England take on the USA in Group B of the World Cup on Friday in Qatar. The Three Lions won their opening game in style against Iran, cruising to a 6-2 victory as Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish all on the scoresheet for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Harry Kane has shaken off an injury scare and is fit to play after undergoing a scan on his ankle this week, while Harry Maguire has also declared himself ready to start following an illness. Southgate has therefore named an unchanged team.

England will want to end an unwanted record and claim their first victory over the USA at a World Cup. The USA famously defeated England at the 1950 World Cup, before Rob Green’s error resulted in a 1-1 draw in South Africa in 2010.

The match begins at 10pm local time (7pm GMT) and will be live on ITV. For those in the US, it’s 2pm ET/11pm PT and is being broadcast on Fox and Telemundo.

36 mins: England wasteful in the final-third in the last few minutes, with Mount lofting a cross into the penalty area – claimed by Turner.

The USA keeper then launched a kick down the pitch to Pulisic, with Stones having to come across to cover.

The United States have had the better of this first-half so far..

Again, it’s all a bit easy for the United States. They switch the ball from right to left and Christian Pulisic rifles a left-foot shot onto the crossbar and behind!

Fierce strike – very unlucky for the American winger!

29 mins: Tricky few minutes for England.

Musah this time pops a shot off from long-range – but it deflects off Rice nicely into the hands of Pickford!

A bit too easy for the United States to break out of their defence though… and once they do, they’ve got plenty of space and numbers up in attack!

20 mins: While England do have the majority of possession, the United States are getting bodies forward on the break!

Dest’s cross from the right isn’t quite on the money, with Pickford claiming at the back post.

Luke Shaw gave away the ball cheaply there…
