AL KHOR, Qatar, England failed to collect full points in the second match at the 2022 World Cup after being tied 0-0 with the United States (US) in Group B action just now.
In that match, the young US squad was seen to shine more, however, poor finishing and several wasted opportunities saw them draw 0-0 at the Al Bayt Stadium.
England, who fielded the same squad in their 6-2 win over Iran, should have been able to confirm their place in the knockout stages, but failed to dominate their better opponents.
The USA’s best chance came through Christian Pulisic who managed to beat England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, but his powerful shot hit the crossbar.
England’s best chance to break the deadlock came through Mason Mount just before the break, but US goalkeeper Matt Turner denied his effort.
England’s front line in the match seemed to be dysfunctional and looked different compared to when they thrashed Iran in the opening match.
The draw saw Gareth Southgate’s squad forced to concede one point and collect four points to lead Group B.-AGENCIES
