England will lock horns with the United States of America on Friday at the Al Bayt Stadium as they try to secure another positive result in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Three Lions earned a dominant 6-2 win versus Iran recently which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game.
Gareth Southgate will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could play Phil Foden from the start of this game which means that Mason Mount will drop to the bench.
4-3-3 England Predicted Lineup To Face United States
Jordan Pickford will function in goal for the United States as he looks to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes. John Stones will function alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of Southgate’s defence as they look to keep the opposition at bay this Friday.
Kieran Trippier will keep his spot at right-back while Luke Shaw hopes to produce a tireless shift as the left-back. The England boss will instruct both of them to make some decent runs with the ball out on the flanks and create some inviting chances in the final third.
Kyle Walker and Eric Dier will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive spots.
The Three Lions could line up with a midfield three of Phil Foden, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park. All three of them need to be at their best if England are to secure a convincing win in this World Cup game.
Jordan Henderson and Mason Mount will have to settle for a place on the bench as they await their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if Southgate opts to call upon their services.
Raheem Sterling will hope to catch the eye as the left-sided wide player while Bukayo Saka looks to make a difference from the right flank.
Harry Kane will once again lead the line for the Three Lions down the middle. The English striker failed to get his name on the scoresheet versus Iran, so he will be eager to score in this World Cup match.
Callum Wilson will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter if England are in need of a goal by then.
