England knew that a win would guarantee them a place in the knockout stages, but the draw still holds them top of Group B with four points.
Al Khor, Qatar — Loud heckles rang out around the stadium. England fans were not satisfied. The US once again irritated them at the World Cup.
It’s the third time the teams have met on football’s biggest stage, and England are still waiting for their first victory over the Americans. 0-0 Raffle on Friday.
Coach Gareth Southgate was reminding his players of the famous record of the USA winning 1-0 in 1950 and drawing 1-1 in 2010. A young and energetic team.
England justified their status as one of the favorites of the tournament by defeating Iran 6–2 in their opening match in Qatar.

“I want to see goals,” said Burhalter. “We are proud, but our work is not done yet.”
The draw will see the United States qualify for the Round of 16 when they face Iran on Tuesday. Iran edged Wales 2-0 to her second place in Group B with three points.
A win would have pushed England through to the knockout stages, but the Three Lions rarely took the lead.
Its supporters were ready to celebrate a second-half winner when Harry Kane nearly scored with a header in injury time.
“It certainly wasn’t the best performance,” Kane said. “We handled the ball well, but the final product was not yet there. With a clean sheet, we are in a great position in the group.
“I had a couple of chances, but I didn’t take them.”
