England is on the list of one of the favorites to win the title in this World Cup edition, and opened their campaign with a good game. They had a stellar 6-2 victory against Iran, and is now on the top of their group. Another victory will help them secure a spot in the knockout stage. England securing a spot in the knockout stage is no longer surprising because it is already a common qualification for them. As they meet a talented USA squad, they need to be at their best in order to win this game.

England is one of the teams who has a well-balanced and in-depth team in the competition. The presence of Bukayo Saka and Harry Kane is enough to make England a very dangerous team.

USA is a very young squad, but despite of that, they managed to impress during their first match in the contest. Although their first game ended in draw, it is enough to make the World see what they can bring in the World Cup. However, they still need to win their remaining games, if they want to go further this contest. USA is a capable team, and they should not be fascinated by the England squad so they could pull an upset here.

Although Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah suffered health issues when they faced Wales, but will be available to play in this game.
