How to watch England v USA on TV and live stream tonight - what channel is Three Lions’ World Cup match in Qatar on?
England take on the USA in their next Group B encounter at the 2022 World Cup on Friday. Gareth Southgate’s side crushed Iran 6-2 in their first match. Iran are now sat second in the table after they beat Wales 2-0 earlier on Friday. The USA are third with Wales in fourth. Here are all the details of how to watch the England v USA game, what channel it is on, and when the teams are facing off.
The match comes after Wales were beaten 2-0 by Iran in heart-breaking circumstances earlier on Friday at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. The loss puts Wales on the precipice of elimination from the 2022 Qatar World Cup as they now have one point from their opening two games and sit bottom of Group B.
Iran are up into second after a much-improved performance following their opening-game humbling against Gareth Southgate’s England.
Harry Kane is expected to lead the line again for the Three Lions against the United States after a precautionary scan on his ankle revealed no damage.
Kane was on the end of a robust challenge during England’s 6-2 thrashing of Iran in their Group B opener on Friday, fuelling fears he could miss the game against Gregg Berhalter's side.
Elsewhere, Harry Maguire is also cleared to play despite feeling unwell during the Iran match, while Kyle Walker is available for selection for the first time this tournament. James Maddison, the only injury absentee for the Three Lions, is expected to return to training after the match.
The USA might have only drawn 1-1 with Wales in their first outing, but they were excellent in the first half and have a coterie of young stars such as Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah and Weston McKennie.
A win for England would secure their passage into the knockout stages, while any other result would keep the group more open ahead of the last matchday.

WHAT SORT OF OPPOSITION WILL USA PROVIDE?
The USA played a veritable game of two halves against Wales in their first group game on Monday.
In the first half Berhalter's side were dynamic and dominant, with Wales barely able to get a sniff of an opportunity.
They got their deserved goal through Weah's smart finish, after he had been slid in by a terrific Pulisic pass.
But in the second half it was all change, and vulnerabilities at centre-back were exposed as first Kieffer Moore came on to trouble them, and then Walker Zimmerman gave away a penalty with a clumsy tackle on Gareth Bale.
Bale stepped up to put the spot-kick away, and it was the USA who were holding on at the end.
Will they be suffering physically after that encounter? Southgate's energetic England side, who coasted through their encounter with Iran and were able to rest players in the second half, will certainly put them to the test.
