A thumping 6-2 win over Iran on Monday has allayed any fears over the Three Lions’ form heading into the tournament, having not won a competitive game in over a year before heading to the Middle East.
The USA were cruising against Wales later in the day but had to settle for a point after Gareth Bale’s late converted penalty, meaning defeat to Gareth Southgate and Co. would leave them under real pressure in their final group-stage match.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game tonight.

England vs USA prediction
The Americans will prove a tougher test than Iran four days’ earlier and Southgate will make sure England do not get ahead of themselves after scoring six for just the second ever time at a World Cup.
Iran proved England can be got at, and USA certainly did as much against Wales, but the Three Lions’ extra quality should shine through.
England to win, 3-1.
