England – USA live scores and latest World Cup updates – Harry Kane kicks off in Qatar

World Cup: US goalkeeper Matt Turner calls England ‘favorite tournament’

England will face the USA in Group B of the World Cup on Friday in Qatar. The Three Lions won their first match in style against Iran, winning 6-2 as Bukayo Saka, Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish scored for Gareth Southgate’s side.

Harry Kane has recovered from his injury fears and is fit to play after undergoing an ankle test this week, while Harry Maguire has also declared he is ready to start after his illness. Southgate therefore named the unchanged team.

England will be looking to break an unwanted record and claim their first World Cup victory over the USA. The US famously defeated England at the 1950 World Cup before a Rob Green error led to a 1–1 draw in South Africa in 2010.

The match will start at 22:00 local time (19:00 GMT) and will be broadcast live on ITV. For US residents, it is 14:00 ET/11:00 PM PT and is broadcast on Fox and Telemundo.

England vs USA commentators: Who are the ITV pundits at the Qatar World Cup?

Each World Cup match against Qatar is shown live in the UK on the BBC or ITV, with the other England match on ITV and all of the broadcaster’s streaming platforms.

This means the game’s soundtrack will be voiced by ITV’s “A-team” commentary by Sam Matterface and Lee Dixon – and the people in front of the mic are always divided.

Analyst Dixon played over 450 league games for Arsenal before becoming a pundit.

Matterface’s lead commentator appears mainly on ITV but also commentates on TalkSport radio.

World Cup 2022: England vs USA – Gareth Southgate speaking to ITV:

On choosing the same starting XI as Iran: “It’s never easy because you wonder if you shouldn’t refresh something. But if I was a player I would think I deserved what I deserved, I think we did the right thing.

On USA: “They put a lot of pressure on you, it’s going to be a different pace of the game. We have to find solutions to play them.

“We have to be positive about the way we play, the beauty of the World Cup is that we have to face different challenges. It’s a great reward if we can win tonight, but it’s a completely different kind of challenge.

World Cup 2022: England vs USA – Jude Bellingham profile:

Jude Bellingham’s hometown is proud of a boy who exercised so much he tired the grass:

As England’s teenage football hero Jude Bellingham returns to the pitch in Qatar on Friday, friends and neighbors in his West Midlands hometown of Stourbridge are bursting with pride.

And no more so than his old elementary school janitor who used to fetch a lost ball off a player’s roof when he was a boy.

“It seemed like everyday life,” says Mark Williams Independent. “You could say at the time he was a pretty good little footballer and he was destined to be.”

“He seemed to do it more than any other kid. It became a joke. Ladders came out every day. That’s why I kept them on standby.”

She adds: “He was a very nice boy. He always asked you to make a nice touchdown.

This made the midfielder only the second teenager – after Michael Owen – to score for the Three Lions in a World Cup.

Roy Keane on Jude Bellingham, speaking on ITV:

“He’s dynamic, he’s moving forward. We saw his goal the other day. It seems easy for him, very mature. He looks like a football player, a talented boy. A big step now at 19. He’s still a child, but his future, my God, if he keeps his feet firmly on the ground.

“I think we should get carried away. They are like leaders at 19, he has it all. He can run forward, if you were the perfect midfielder you’d say it’s almost him.

“He’s a player who feels comfortable taking the ball anywhere. He could be the one.”

World Cup 2022: England vs USA

Jordan Pickford hopes England will be treated fairly by officials after boss Gareth Southgate said he was “worried” that his side was used as an example in refereeing meetings ahead of the World Cup.

England were denied what appeared to be a clear penalty when Harry Maguire was caught by Rouzbeh Cheshmi early in their 6-2 win over Iran on Monday.

VAR decided not to intervene but later alerted the referee to a shirt tug in England’s penalty area, which resulted in Mehdi Taremi scoring a last-gasp penalty, while a similar offense resulted in a penalty in Argentina’s shock defeat to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.

World Cup 2022: England captain ready to play against USA after scan all clear

Kane injured his right ankle after an inept tackle from Morteza Pouraliganji in England’s 6-2 win over Iran on Monday – the biggest win for a national team at the start of a major tournament.

The Spurs striker, who has had problems with his ankle in the past, played for 25 minutes but was seen limping after the game and went for a preventive check-up.

But the 29-year-old was given the green light for training on Wednesday, with England’s official Twitter account sharing a photo of him training with the caption ‘skipper’ and a fist emoji.
