Head-to-head record

The teams have played on 11 previous occasions with England winning eight of them – but the Three Lions have never beaten the United States at a World Cup.

They famously lost their first meeting at the tournament in 1950 by a 1-0 scoreline, and their last meeting at the World Cup in South Africa, where they also met in the group stage, produced a 1-1 draw.

It’s been four years since the teams last played, with England triumphing 3-0 in a November friendly at Wembley, with Jesse Lingard, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson all on target.
