The United States will be looking for a win when they play England on Friday, Nov. 25 at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar. Here’s how to watch.
The United States will look to get their first win at this World Cup when they take on England Friday at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar.
The USMNT is coming off a hard-fought 1-1 draw played Monday against Wales, while England are currently first in Group B after a 6-2 rout of Iran.
The United States last played England at a World Cup in 2010, a game that ended 1-1. A repeat of that result would keep the US in contention to finish second and advance to the knockout stage.
The United States famously beat England 1-0 at the 1950 World Cup in what remains among one of the biggest upsets in tournament history.
Eight members of the US team play in England, either in the Premier League or second-rung Championship, something coach Gregg Berhalter hopes can help his side. That group is headed by striker Christian Pulisic, goalkeeper Matt Turner and midfielders Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson.
England are stacked with talent and have been one of the best teams in recent memory. The Three Lions finished fourth at the last World Cup in 2018 and were runners up to Italy in the European Championship played last summer.
