The Three Lions will take on USA in their second Group B Qualifier at the 2022 World Cup.

Gareth Southgate's squad were drawn out alongside Iran, USA and either Wales or Scotland/Ukraine at the draw in Doha on 1 April, when the England manager gave his thoughts on the opposition. Find out more about the MUSNT below...

Coach: Gregg Berhalter
Qualified from: Third in CONCACAF
Qualifying top scorer: Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)
FIFA World Cup best performance: third place (1930, Uruguay)
Last encounter: England 3-0 USA, 16 November 2018, Wembley Stadium
The last time these two nations were paired in a World Cup came in South Africa in 2010, when they met in their opening game of the group stages. A Steven Gerrard goal in the first half after just four minutes put Fabio Capello’s side in front, but the States hit back just before half time when Clint Dempsey’s shot evaded the grasp of Robert Green to seal a draw.
USA will arrive in Qatar on the back of a campaign which saw them finish behind Canada and Costa Rica in the CONCACAF qualification group. They’ve been regulars in the World Cup Finals in recent years, qualifying for every tournament from 1990 until 2014, but they missed out on the 2018 competition in Russia.
