England went into the World Cup in some of their worst form for decades. They bounced back well after losing the UEFA Euro 2020 final on penalties to Italy in 2021, winning seven and drawing two of nine. However, they lost three and drew three of their previous six before the World Cup.
Can Three Lions Build on Big Iran Win?
England forgot about their recent poor form and was back at their brilliant best against Iran in their opener.
The Three Lions were three goals up by halftime, with Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, and Raheem Sterling getting the goals.
Saka scored again in the second period, and there were also goals for Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish in the 6-2 romp.
England is one of the favorites to lift the trophy in Qatar, and three points on Friday will put them safely into the last 16.
If they win the group, which is a real possibility, the English will go up against the Group A runners-up in a Round of 16 matchup in Doha next weekend.
England is in high spirits ahead of this one, and Southgate’s side will be eyeing up a comfortable win at Al Bayt Stadium. Keep reading for our England vs USA prediction and pick.

- Jordan Pickford
- Kieran Trippier
- John Stones
- Eric Dier

With England expected to win the group, the United States and Wales look set to battle for the second spot.
Can the Stars and Stripes Spring a Surprise?
Of course, an American win on Friday could change that, but the Stars and Stripes will have to be at their very best to topple the English in Al Khor. The USA was superb in the first half against Wales on Monday.
They controlled the opening 45 minutes and should have been ahead by more than one goal at the break. Timothy Weah prodded the States into a 36th-minute lead.
However, Rob Page’s Dragons looked like a different team in the second period, and Gareth Bale rattled home a penalty in the 82nd minute to give the Welsh a share of the spoils.
United States will be hoping for a favor from Iran in their match with Wales on Friday. Gregg Berhalter’s troops then face the Iranians in their final Group B game at Al Thumama Stadium next Tuesday.
England is one of the tournament favorites, and this will be a stern test for Berhalter’s Stars and Stripes. Nevertheless, the USA will back itself to get a positive result in Al Khor. Read on for our England vs USA prediction, along with the latest betting odds.

England vs. United States Pick and Prediction
After putting six past Iran and ending their winless run in style, England will be a tough nut to crack here.
Three points will put them in the last 16, and Southgate will be eager for his side to reach the knockouts as quickly as possible.
There were plenty of positives to take for the United States in Monday’s game with Wales, especially in the first half.
However, this is likely to be a far greater test against an England side currently ranked fifth in the world.
England shipped twice against Iran, but we can see the Three Lions keeping a clean sheet in this one.
You can get +150 for the English to win to nil. We also fancy England to be winning at half-time and full-time at +140.
