AL KHOR, Qatar — The U.S. men’s national team takes on England in its second match of Group B action today (2 p.m., ET, FOX), with the winner of today’s showdown moving into first place in the group.
The Americans come in off a 1-1 draw with Wales, while the Three Lions look to build on their 6-2 triumph over Iran. The Iranians rebounded on Friday with a 2-0 victory over the Welsh, meaning the USMNT can control its own fate with a good result against the English.
Gregg Berhalter has made just one change to his starting lineup, going with Haji Wright at striker over Josh Sargent. Weston McKennie and Sergiño Dest are back in the lineup despite yellow cards and concerns over fitness, while Walker Zimmerman and Tim Ream are also carrying yellow cards into tonight’s match.
England will start the same exact lineup tonight that beat Iran, with Harry Kane shaking off an ankle knock to return to the lineup.
