England football will face the United States in the second World Cup Group B clash and the Three Lions have put themselves in a very strong position with a great opening victory over Iran.
Gareth Southgate will hope Harry Kane makes a full recovery in time to play his part, although the options of scoring goals from the bench while looking in good shape will at least ease some fears should he fail.
In the case of the US, there is more pressure on them to find a result after failing to keep their lead against Wales. As a result, Gregg Berhalter may decide to reshuffle the pack in midfield as it looks like they will at least remain undefeated.
England has never actually beaten the US in a World Cup match, the Americans won in 1950 and both sides drew in 2010.

What’s the news from the team?
Harry Kane has real doubts for England after suffering an ankle injury against Iran, Tottenham striker awaits scan results. Marcus Rashford would be the favorite to replace but Callum Wilson could also be an option, although the Newcastle striker missed Tuesday’s training session.
Kyle Walker wasn’t fit enough to play in the opening game due to groin issues, but here he is again in contention. Doubts remain about James Maddison, who missed Leicester training with a knee injury.
Midfielder Yunus Musah came out injured against Wales with a toe injury. Weston McKennie has a groin problem. Neither would be fit enough to start, then Cristian Roldan could come in to reinforce the midfield.
Sergino Dest was questionable against Wales and then left the game, which could also call into question his place here.
Gregg Berhalter will reconsider Gio Reyna from the start after holding him back with fitness issues in the first match.
England XI: Pickford; Trippier, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Mountain; Saka, Kane, Sterling
U.S. XI: Turner; Yedlin, Zimmerman, Ream, Robinson; Acosta, Adams, Roldan; Weah, Sergeant, Pulisic
United States: 19/4
England are flying after losing to Iran in the first leg and the United States, alive against Wales, fell apart in the second half. The Southgate side will have too much here and will surpass the match to move up to six points. England 2-1 United States.
