The United States gave a great game on the second day of Group B , but it was not enough to beat England and they drew 0-0 at the Al Bayt Stadium , so both teams will define their pass to the Round of 16 on the last date.

Gregg Berhalter only made one change with respect to his lineup that he presented in his debut against Wales (1-1) , Haji Wright took Josh Sargent ‘s place in search of his starting ‘9’.

The Three Lions team got off to a better start and with a triangulation by Jude Bellingham , Bukayo Saka and Harry Kane they shook Matt Turner’s nets with a shot from Kane inside the six-yard box that Walker Zimmerman managed to deflect into a corner kick.

The USMNT connected to the game and from then on they stood up well on the field with good arrivals on their wings, taking advantage of the speed and imbalance of Timothy Weah and Christian Pulisic , in addition to Sergiño Dest also going up several times on the right wing.

The Stars and Stripes team were able to open the scoring with a cross from Weah that Weston McKennie finished off near the penalty spot without a mark, but he failed to connect in the best way and his shot went over the frame.

Yunus Musah was solid in midfield and also participated in the generation of danger, on one occasion he gave the ball to Pulisic who faced and took a powerful left foot that threatened the angle, but luckily for the English he hit the crossbar.

Pulisic again warned Jordan Pickford

 ‘s arc with a header from Dest’s pass that missed the left post, and before the first half ended England responded with Mason Mount ‘s long-range shot that Matt Turner saved for the win . palms.

In the second half, the United States improved possession of the ball, but did not have clear chances like in the first half and Berhalter made changes until the 77th minute in search of greater depth with the addition of Brenden Aaronson and Shaquell Moore .

The most dangerous thing that the USMNT had was a corner kick from Pulisic who painted to be an Olympic player before a faltering start from Pickford that he managed to resolve by sending the ball to another corner.

The United States remains without a win in Qatar 2022 and occupies third place in Group B with three points, so to qualify for the next round they must beat Iran, who surprised by defeating Wales 2-0.

While England remains the leader by reaching four points after crushing Iran 6-2 on the first day and will close the Group Stage against Wales on Tuesday, November 29.
