Predicted England and USA line-ups: team news ahead of the World Cup meeting

England play the USA in their second World Cup match in Qatar on Friday looking to finish in the final 16 of the tournament.

Three points for Gareth Southgate’s side will then give them a chance to rotate in the final against Wales.

A strong performance and a emphatic 6-2 victory in the opening match against Iran means that the Three Lions are confident here.

And the Stars and Stripes will be hoping for an improvement after coming late to Wales to relinquish their lead and settle for a 1-1 draw.

Here’s everything you need to know before the game.

The Group B match will start at 19:00 on Friday 25 November at the Al-Bayt Stadium in Al Khor.

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.

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.
